I visited Masterton today and had a fabulous time looking around the Spinners & Weavers popup shop that is open for 3 weeks beside Countdown Supermarket (opposite the Copper Kettle). Bought some gorgeous felted leaves that could be used for decoration or coasters etc.
Received my latest Tranzit Tours magazine today (called TranzScript – cool name ) and you can now book online with them for their trips and tours and there is no longer any membership fee! Awesome guys. They have so many things coming up – both local, national and international trips and although some of them have sold out already there are others just waiting for you to tap in.
They are having a Winter Warmer on Tuesday 18 June where they are visiting the Kaitoke Country Gardens cafe and the ever popular la Bella Italia (YUM). The are having lunch at the Back Bencher Gastropub (never been there either) and then there is an opportunity to have some retail therapy in Petone with all the lovely little boutique stores along Jackson Street! and all for only $73.00 which includes all your food!
They are already advertising for the Wairarapa Garden Tour in November, the WearableArt Awards in September and Operatunity in October and then they offer a trip to Norfolk Island (always wanted to go there) in August, Western Australia in October – you name it they have it! If you want to find out more then you can visit them online on www.tranzittours.co.nz or phone them on 0800 471 227.
