AA Directions Autumn 2022
While we’re living in challenging times, there are good things to have come out of the uncertainty – such as the chance to learn new skills, simplify our lifestyles and focus on what’s important. We meet some positive New Zealanders who are not just surviving but thriving in this ‘new normal.’ Also in this issue we talk to a summer chef at Scott Base in Antarctica, visit the new Hundertwasser Art Centre in Whangārei and take a tour of the incredible Riverstone Castle in Ōamaru. We look at what's needed to win the fight against drunk driving, compare a 2012 Toyota RAV4 with the latest model, and look at the future of EVs. Plus, we're delighted to introduce the AA's new CEO, Nadine Tereora.
