Well I’d like for ‘The Rock’ to but he’s busy (and skinny) so I would gladly settle for local heroes Tofiga or Dave Fane!
WHATWAS YOUR HIGHLIGHT OF 2016?
Appointing a dynamite DP & AP team and a solid ERO result.
WHAT THREE THINGS WOULD YOU TAKE IF YOU WERE GOING TO BE STRANDED ON A DESERT ISLAND?
A water purifier, a homing device and flint.
WHAT IS YOUR DREAM HOLIDAY LOCATION?
There’s this painting called, ‘‘Rendezvous on Ru du Mont Cenis.’’ It’s by a Russian modern day contemporary artist named Evgeny Lushpin and is a beautiful scene on these famous (sort of) steps in Montmartre, Paris.
In the painting there’s a couple meeting in the middle of the steps in the rain under umbrellas - hence the name!
Now, not that I want to spend a holiday going up and down steps, but if you take the time to look at the artist’s impression, how could you not want to rendezvous on a rainy night in Paris with a loved one?
Until then, the equally prettiful but in a different way - Te Anau.
