We’ve asked her a few of her favorite things about Kaikoura:
… What’s your favorite things to do in Kaikoura in the spring?
I love walking along the beaches and near the seal colonies in the spring. Often the sea breeze smells so fresh and clean, and reminds me of childhood vacations near the ocean. It evokes great nostalgia for me.
… What’s your favorite food to eat when visiting Kaikoura?
Anything from the sea, though crayfish is definitely my fave. Or Pinto Noir wine, does that count?
… What’s your favorite New Zealand brand?
That's hard. I love all of the merino brands, from Allbirds shoes to Mons Royale for clothes, and I love my Wilson and Dorset sheepskin runs and throws around my house.
… Finally tell us about your best souvenir visiting Kaikoura…
Probably my best souvenir from Kaikoura is the memory of one of the sunrise experience, from swimming with dolphins or joining in to see the albatross.
