Looking back on my wanderings last year, I flew a lot of miles on a lot of airlines and slept in a lot of beds. Here are my shout outs for the best and most memorable experiences in air travel, hotel stays, and city visits.
One day the gardener said to the children, "You know, I'm always telling you what we are going to grow. This time, what would you like to grow?" To her surprise, the children had a unanimous answer: "Kiwis!"
Perhaps it's the small size of the New Zealand government, or the tight-knit nature of Kiwis, or the Kiwis' propensity for enjoying a tough scrum, but I know New Zealand will recover from this disaster with its spirit intact.
