Fieldays update

Following my last post, Lots of people have asked me for photos and an update after the big event that is … Fieldays –  the Southern Hemisphere’s largest agribusiness exhibition at Mystery Creek Events Centre, Hamilton New Zealand.

Now I’m sorry to disappoint but I cannot post lots of fantastic pictures that I took over my time (working) at the four-day event. I didn’t get time to take ANY.

So I will instead briefly report that the whole event was a huge success; the brief showers on Friday quickly disappeared, the sun shone, the frost twinkled, abundant coffee was drunk, the fantastic communications team (!) at Mystery Creek Events Centre were shooting out press releases, tweets and Facebook messages in all directions – and the people came. Visitor numbers were up 9% on 2011 and everyone seemed pretty happy.

If you would like to see some fantastic pictures (not taken by me) I can do nothing better than refer you to Fieldays own Facebook page where some wonderful person has loaded up professional photos that are quite frankly, pretty awesome.
Have a look.
And put 12-15 June 2013 in your calendar so you can visit the next Fieldays.

(and fingers crossed I shall be recovered and recuperated enough to do a Kiwi Blog Bus post at the weekend!)

Rattle ya’ dags! Get your gumboots on and get to Mystery Creek

Ok – I’ll admit it now… this post has pretty much nothing to do with the Kiwi Blog Bus.

BUT… it’s about a pretty cool annual event in New Zealand and a great place to have a day out – that happens to be only 10 mins away from where we live so we don’t have any need to go in our bus – acceptable reason?

Fieldays is the largest agricultural event in the Southern Hemisphere – it is also held at Mystery Creek Event Centre  – which happens to be where I now work in a Communications role so that may just be the other reason for this post! Read More…

Woodlyn Park – truely a unique attraction

It’s fair to say that we do see some unusual sights while driving around New Zealand in an old Japanese school bus, but down in Waitomo we were a little bewildered to see a very large boat placed in a field near a  Bristol Freighter plane and an old railway carriage.

We went to investigate.

Woodlyn Park also caught our eye as there was a large roadside sign saying Free campervan parking.
How could we refuse? Read More…

Our daydreaming and list making trip

As you may have gathered we went to the Motorhome show at Claudelands Event centre yesterday.

Fortunately Hamilton seemed to get away with strong winds and squally showers rather than the “weather bomb” that we’d been promised. Read More…

Lots of goodies and gadgets


Loos and canoes


You can buy pretty much anything here at the Motorhome show

Apparently my dreams and adventures will start at the weekend

It’s not a horoscope.

That’s what I was told when I visited the website for the New Zealand Motorhome & Caravan Show which starts this Friday in Hamilton. Read More…
