During a guided road trip in New Zealand, Robert Panzer of Tailored Travel, offered to drive by his Nelson farm on the way to an Abel Tasman hike. Alan and I eagerly said yes. For us, one of the joys of boomer travel, is going local. And stopping by Robert’s farm was as local as it gets. The visit introduced us to another New Zealand custom—recycling old buildings. This telephone booth had become a point of interest in Robert’s garden. And the building that Robert used as an office formerly housed a one-room post office. We would see this practice repeatedly during our drive along the West coast of the South Island.
