I am so often amazed at how creative Kiwi’s( slang for New Zealander’s) are, in so many different ways.  I’d like to share some of the wonderful Kiwi creativity I came across while I was a way.

The first is to be found at a little place called Colville.  This is the last place your can buy petrol, groceries a or a cup of coffee, at the top of the Coromandel peninsula. This part of the Coromandel Peninsula is a 4 hour drive from Auckland.

You really couldn’t call it a town.  All that’s there is a general store, a café, which incidentally makes the best coffee on the Peninsula, a post office, half a dozen houses, a fire station AND…..

A really creative public loo…………….

A loo in the sticks - not even a sheep in sight!
