real journeys NZ ..'the cool gran'

Last week I got flown to Queenstown New Zealand to play the ‘cool gran’ for Real Journeys NZ latest advertising campaign.

If you haven’t been to New Zealand, (like me) you can possibly imagine how beautiful the South island is but believe me

when you're actually there its beyond comprehension how absolutely magnificent it really is.

Mind you, I come from the highlands of Tasmania, which is pretty glorious, but my little mountains just don't really have a patch on

the glory I witnessed down there in the Southland.

I flew in to Queenstown in a slight drizzle, there was a fresh snow dump on the mountains surrounding the town from the night I stepped off the plane

Real Journeys head office to meet the marketing lovelies, Ciara, Christina & Daniella and have a wardrobe fitting with uber talented and ace Makeup Artist/Stylist Stacy Dunn.
