An amazing interview by Katrina Cole, one of the Directors from House of Travel Botany Junction with Retail NZ, on recovery in the Retail sector. Katrina summed it all up perfectly - our struggles, our love for our clients and our local communities, our drive to see these hard-times out and our passion for our industry. We can't wait to help "Kiwis see the World" again.

Well worth a watch!

✈️🥂 IT’S TIME TO MOVE AGAIN…. 2022 ready, set go - the world is waiting… for you! 🥂✈️

We are absolutely thrilled (and that’s an understatement) that our borders will start reopening from January 2022. It’s been a very long and hard 20 months surviving what feels like an eternity! Oh how we’ve missed the love of reuniting families, the joy of creating lifetime memories and the happiness of living travel through you!

Bring it … See you all soon! 💜💜

Ofcourse we'll all be wearing ours in support also - so pop down and !

Gumboot Friday is happening this Friday 5th November and we are proudly getting behind this very worthy cause.

For people struggling with depression, it can feel like walking through mud every day so our team are ready to put our gumboots on to help raise much needed funds to help provide free counselling for our youth here in NZ.

The boss has very generously decided to donate $10 for every person who comes down to our office to say Hi this Friday (there will be some yummy treats as an incentive). The catch is, you must be wearing your gumboots in support of this cause!

We will have a poster with a QR code for an automatic $3 donation and you will also be able to shake the loose change out of your wallet into a gumboot as well.

If we all do a little, it can make a big difference so please come on down and help us to

A little note from Carla;

“Last week we said ‘Seeya’ but never ‘Goodbye’ to a very valued and appreciated Hottie... Katrina.

I am incredibly fortunate to have had her as part of my fabulous team.

This time last year I was so proud and grateful to have our team of 5 - myself, Nicola, Katrina, Lana and Cody.

We all shared similar values and principles and a mutual respect. As a team I thought nothing could break us... we were solid - and then Covid happened and that rocked the core we had so strongly built together - all of us... our TEAM.

Unfortunately due to the effects of Covid, border closures and the short term effect to the travel industry we’ve now temporarily reduced our team of 5 to a team of two.

We’ve shared some amazing highs and celebrated them appropriately and then together we’ve cried, we’ve screamed, we’ve gone to hell and back but we can always be proud of who we are and what we’ve achieved.

I am so thankful for everything my team has done to support our very important clients, to support me in what has to be my hardest year yet and for their loyalty to our House of Travel family.

Words do not and can not explain how much I will always appreciate them.”

💜💜💜💜💜

🚵🏻 *** Put the brakes on daily life and escape on a South Island lakeside ride from the Alps to the Ocean with Intrepid Tours *** 🏔

11-16May departing from Christchurch, finishing in Oamaru.

Why you'll love this trip?

Soak up the silence of Milford Sound on a cruise across its waters – you’ll be left speechless by the hundreds of tumbling cascades and deeply forested mountains.

Explore the Cathedral Caves of the Catlins, an untamed coastal wilderness home to rugged cliffs, dense forest, and spectacular hidden waterfalls.

Cross the Foveaux Strait to unspoilt Stewart Island, a haven for hikers and birdwatches and the place to spot a wild kiwi.

Enjoy two days to explore the wilderness of Stewart Island, cruising the bays and inlets to spot penguins and seabirds and walking along its forested coastal tracks.

Whanganui is one of the oldest cities in New Zealand, and is rich in heritage, arts and culture. Visiting the most beautiful small city awarded 2 years running, means taking a step back in time, whether you’re riding a restored paddle steamer or admiring the backdrop of heritage architecture of our town centre.

We look forward to showcasing our little slice of paradise!
