The new Entertainment Books are on sale and they are now valid for 12 months from date of purchase rather than a calendar year. The other big change is that they are now only available as an online subscription and app rather than a weighty book and can come with you wherever you go. The new multi city option is great value for money with access to all areas in New Zealand, Australia and Bali. Trans-Tasman Bubble, here we come!

As I was travelling to the UK and am inherently quite cheeky I thought I would message him via Facebook to see if he was interested in providing a cartoon for auction to raise funds for Greyhounds as Pets New Zealand. And to my surprise and gratitude he said yes.
