Travel Communicators Blog

Blog for travel writing,photography and publishing in New Zealand and internationally.
Vivienne Haldane is a freelance photographer and writer based in Hawke's Bay, New Zealand. She is a regular contributor to a wide variety of national magazines and particularly enjoys writing travel features. This ex Waiheke Islander (pre influx) and ex Aucklander (pre property boom) briefly lived in China before deciding she'd by-pass Auckland and head back to her home town (some places stay the same) in 2002.

Favourite time: Goodbye Waipuk we're hitting the road!
