Change of Character

“Each [New Zealand] city seems to have its own character and voice; each community has a completely different attitude to life,” Huffington Post freelancer Karen Edwards writes in a blog describing her recent trip. In Christchurch, “See the transformation by punting along the River Avon – the ‘Red Zone’ flags being a stark reminder of what happened here two years ago. But it’s the ‘Tomorrow starts here’ posters that will stick in your memory long after you leave. The second part of my trip involved delving into the country’s communities – from the tourist-friendly Auckland and its boat-loving way of life to foodie capital Napier and its seaside bistros and bars.”
