A Birthday In The House
We had a Birthday at Eden Park Bed and Breakfast over the weekend. Happy Birthday Marlene.
We had a full house and lots of merry,merry was had by all. Lots of good food and a few drinks sealed the day. Had breakfast at the Depot Restaurant in Auckland City on Sunday Morning. That’s a very cool place. I understand why it won the best Restaurant in Auckland 2012. Highly recommend it to anyone. Be aware that they do NOT take reservations!
Our International Visitor Arrivals to New Zealand are still positive although following the Bus accident with Chinese tourists in the South Island ; I would not be surprised to see the Chinese wish to travel in the Summer weather when Ice is not present on the road……
Total visitor arrivals are up by 14% compared to the same four week period last year.
Ups: China 41%, Korea 11%, Canada 10%,
Downs: Singapore -12%, UK -5%, Germany -4%,
Malaysia -46%, Japan -10%, USA -1%
