Hi everyone,
I'm working on a travel story for Stuff about the things that have surprised returning Kiwis about New Zealand. If you have recently returned from overseas or know someone who has, it would be great to hear about the things that have stood out for you, for better or for worse. Whether it's to do with the weather, the cost of things, the public transport, the food, the housing, the people or something else entirely, we'd be keen to hear about it. Please remember that your comment may be included in the article, unless you say you don't want it to be. Thank you.

About 60m of waterfront near the Tauranga Yacht and Power Boat Club at Sulphur Point will be fenced off from next week for an upgrade.

Workers will remove some old wire baskets filled with rocks and replace them with a timber-capped wall.

The new structure will be safer, and will allow people to sit on top.

The works are expected to finish in September.

Pressure Cooker

Esther from Bethlehem

Excellent condition, semi-new, selling because I have two others. Need to downsize.
Works best once it reaches pressure ( a noise coming from the valve), you lower the heat and it will cook much faster than normal cooking time with an ordinary pot.

Price: $95

Poll: Should Kiwis be entitled to more sick leave?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

With Covid-19 still a very real risk, people who are unwell are told to stay home, and to keep any sickly kids home too - but what if you don't have any more sick leave owing?

Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.

With Covid-19 still a very real risk, people who are unwell are told to stay home, and to keep any sickly kids home too - but what if you don't have any more sick leave owing?

Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.

New Zealand’s minimum sick leave allowance is one of the lowest in the OECD. In Australia they get 10 days, in most European countries it’s even more.
