As many of you know I'll try anything once, and as my first attempt a month ago was derailed due to snow on the tracks, it was time to try a change of scene, as I took the Northern Explorer train from Auckland to Wellington. Lots of you know I'm not a great flyer at the best of times, and this provided a great chance to catch up on mahi (and phone calls when reception allowed!) - 11 hours of uninterrupted time to work was just what was needed, although the two hour delay getting into Wellington may have been pushing it slightly!
Many of you will have saved the date of the World Indigenous Tourism Summit from the email sent this week. Let us know if you haven't received it, or would like to be added to the list for further details. Planning is well underway for this event, and we'll be releasing details of the programme and how to register soon.
We'll catch up with those of you who are in Te Anau next week for the Tourism Export Council conference.
Ngā mihi, na,
