AA Directions Spring 2023
For this issue’s main feature we talk to survivors. Three everyday Kiwis who had near-death experiences and lived to tell the tale. We also delve into some of the best bits about being alive, living to the fullest with indulgent wellbeing experiences.
Also in this issue we share expert advice on how to avoid a head-on car crash, take a trip to the golden shores of Queensland’s Sunshine Coast and explain what you should never do when attempting DIY jobs at home. We explore New Zealand, from an urban getaway in Auckland, to a short road trip from Christchurch to Akaroa, a family-friendly weekend in Dunedin, a wellness-infused break in Canterbury's Hurunui District and an incredible Subantarctic Islands cruise.
Things are starting to heat up on the events calendar – from glorious garden festivals to art exhibitions featuring local and international talents. And don’t miss the return of Wairarapa’s most famous aerobatic event in November.
We talk to mechanical engineer Eva Håkansson about building electric motorbikes and winning land speed records.
We share important safety advice about what to do if you’re facing a head-on collision.
