From Nadia

Our editor at large re­ports back from her lat­est ad­ven­tures

Nadia - - CONTENTS -

We’ve been mak­ing the most of the warm, sunny weather and, while we’re still a fam­ily of three, get­ting out and about in the gar­den plant­ing straw­ber­ries. We even hosted a long Ital­ian lunch with friends which was in­spired by the ex­pe­ri­ence of mak­ing our own fresh pasta (check out page 94 if you’d like to do the same).

In this ad­ven­ture is­sue (a topic close to my heart!) we look at all the dif­fer­ent forms an ad­ven­ture can take – whether it’s travel, chal­leng­ing your­self phys­i­cally or men­tally in a dif­fer­ent way, tak­ing the leap and start­ing your own busi­ness, or learn­ing a brand-new skill. Life is ba­si­cally just one big ad­ven­ture, isn’t it?

We never know what’s around the cor­ner, and if there’s one thing I’ve learned over the past few years, it’s to make sure you en­joy the jour­ney as much as the des­ti­na­tion.

This is­sue we’re tak­ing you on some travel ad­ven­tures near (from Christchurch to Grey­mouth through Arthur’s Pass) and far (Sri Lanka), as well as treat­ing the taste buds to a tour of some de­li­cious gems from the cuisines of Den­mark, Croa­tia, Le­banon and more.

If you like the look of the ad­ven­ture I took in the lit­tle green boat on the front cover and be­low, turn to page 123 to find out about my cute craft – it’s ac­tu­ally a kit­set called Stitch­bird from a clever new Kiwi com­pany.

Here’s to your next ad­ven­ture!
