September's books

Thanks to the courier who just made a dreary Friday afternoon brighter.

These books are all due for release next month and I will take great pleasure in choosing one to review for North & South Magazine. Plus, reading material for the plane is always welcome.

Happy weekend, y'all.

Ho Chi Minh City Travel Expo

Apologies for the radio silence - there is too much work and not enough time to do it. I constantly feel as though I'm playing catch-up, which isn't a bad thing when you're a freelancer. So I will stop whingeing forthwith.

Today's visual is the official flyer for the HCMC travel expo which I'm attending in a few weeks. I CANNOT wait for 30 degree temperatures and the chance to bust out the summer clothes. Global warming seemed to swerve around Welli this winter and I am soooo over the cold and rain.

Hello sunshine, my old friend...

Fearless in Fashion

How would you feel if you'd had your leg amputated from the hip down when you were nine?

My story on a courageous designer who didn't let this horrific experience stand in her way, and an equally brave mother who overcame her son's issues, is published in this month's NEXT Magazine (click here to read).

The 'reel' McCaw

Last month I sat in a darkened cinema with a bunch of film distributors to watch Chasing Great, the doco/feature film about Richie McCaw which opens nationwide on 1 September.

And although I'm as far from your standard rugby head as it's possible to be, I found myself engaged with the tale of the shy farm boy who became one of the best rugby players of all time.

My story about the film is published in this month's North and South Magazine (click here to read).

The King and I

My story on Graceland, which I visited last year as part of a Trafalgar media trip, is published in this week's NZ Woman's Weekly to coincide with the 39th anniversary of Elvis' death (today, as it happens). Click here to read.

Tonight I will hobble down to the Royal New Zealand Ballet for the opening night of Giselle .

Thank you to the God of Media Tickets, who has been extremely generous lately.

Vibrant Vietnam

So runs the tagline from the Vietnam Tourism Board.

But no matter how they brand this slither of land which spoons both Laos and Cambodia, the fact remains that I will be there in a month!

After much to-ing and fro-ing my media trip to Ho Chi Minh City in early September is now sorted. And I am very, very excited. Particularly about the 30 degrees my phone tells me the temperature is there today. Oh to feel sunshine on my bare arms again. I CANNOT wait.
