In the Autumn 2024 issue of AA Directions magazine we investigate unusual ways to make a living. For our main feature we talk to eight Kiwis who have unique, inspiring, adventurous and joyful jobs.

Also in this issue we look into the pros and cons of congestion charging, we sit down with legendary Formula 1 driving coach, Rob Wilson, and share tips on how to avoid road rage
