AA Directions Spring 2022

New Zealand punches above its weight on a global scale. In this issue we talked to six impressive Kiwis who have found success in their respective fields – from Hollywood to Instagram; launching rockets, making music, creating fitness empires or ridding the planet of plastic

Also in this issue we look at the impact of increasing fuel costs, investigate how vehicles are modified for drivers with disabilities and find out what goes on behind the scenes of home staging. We take a scenic road trip from Queenstown to Christchurch, discover one of New Zealand’s most remote fine dining experiences in Ruapehu and make a welcome return to the Cook Islands. Plus, check out our great selection of prizes to be won!
