- Magical Mangawhai 3 months ago I was reading in the holiday media recently that the Coromandel has come up trumps with Kiwis as the favourite holiday spot of the nation. I’m hardly surprised, the Coromandel is my fave spot too – Hahei, Cathedral Cove, Whangapoua and New Chum beach have all been important places in... You're...

- It's all about the people on The Block 4 months ago I’ve been misleading my Englishman for the past twelve weeks. You see he’s under the impression that I’ve bought into the renovation reality show The Block NZ just so I can salivate over fox cushions and to-die-for sofa throws. He’s wrong. But I just have been able to tell him... You're...
- And remarkably, no one died! 5 months ago I’ve just spent the entire day working at a client’s premises and guess what? No one died. Nup. All four other family members are still alive and kicking.

Vix has a wonderful sense of humor and I frequently squirt coffee on my keyboard when reading her posts. As a Kiwi adrift in the rain soaked United Kingdom I do feel her pain and love reading about how she's trying to adapt to England's soggy climes.

I love Vicki's take on things. She shares her experiences of life abroad in such a way that her readers are pulled in by her wit and personable style, as if we were tucked into her bag and taken along with her on her journey.

A Kiwi that claims Vegemite?! Us Aussies might as well take the Finn brothers and Pavlova... Setting that aside great blog with a wide mix of topics and discussions. I enjoy catching up on Vegemite Vix when I do my blog reading.
