Society of Fear

Apologies for the radio silence - the Animator has been in China for work this week (freezing his butt off in minus 12 degrees in Beijing while we've been sweltering, ha!) and I've been flat out.

So am playing catch-up. Here's a story of mine from yesterday's Canvas Magazine (NZ Herald) in which I interview a German sociologist who had some interesting things to say about fear (click here to read the online version).

Beautiful Kerikeri

I'm ashamed to say I've never been to the Bay of Islands before. Yeah, I know.

But last week I got a chance to put that right when I flew to Kerikeri for a few days for a story. I ate and drank my way around the largest town in Northland and managed to fit in a bit of sightseeing too.
Gosh it's a beautiful part of the country and I wish I'd visited a long, long time ago.

Being a chef in Vietnam

Almost every aspect of Vietnamese life revolves around food. That's why cooking classes are so  popular there. I scoffed my way through one and wrote about it in Stuff (click here to read).

Mind over Mojitos

If, like most of us, you've had a wee too much to drink over the festive break, the concept of mindful drinking may be of some interest. Don't roll your eyes, there is some scientific basis to it.

I chatted to the British author of a new book about mindful drinking and wrote about it in the NZ Herald's Canvas Magazine on Saturday (click here to read).

Find your bliss

Back in September, I flew to Bali to visit five luxury resorts. In six days. It was a whirlwind of five-star resorts, in the shadow of Mt Agung which threatened to blow at any minute (thankfully it didn't while I was there).

I would have loved to have stayed longer at all these resorts but even one or two nights was enough for a taste of how the other half live. Here's my story in the January issue of Kia Ora Magazine, Air NZ's inflight magazine (click here to read).

Woo hoo!

A great start to the year - I've written for North & South Magazine for years and years but have never nailed a cover story. Until now!

My feature on social anxiety is on the cover of the January issue (which actually came out a few weeks ago). Click here to read it.
