Join The Big Egg Hunt!

 

Image bigegg
The Whittaker’s Big Egg Hunt is in full swing across the country. The eggs are listed on Trade Me, so have a look – there are some cool designs by great artists, and all the proceeds go to Starship. If you want to win a heap of chocolate – more than one human needs – take a selfie with one of the eggs and flick it through to the team at Trade Me before Good Friday.

We’ll have a chuckle and then send the winner a big ol’ choccy hamper.

Stay somewhere eggcentric this Easter

 

With Easter and ANZAC Day falling so close together this year, a few days of annual leave gives you a 10-day break. Make the most of this chance and stay somewhere interesting. Here are a few options for weird and wonderful accommodation on Travelbug.

 

Old convent

 

Get thee to a nunnery

 

Whether you want to solve a problem like Maria, or just stay in an amazing place, this old convent will suit you just fine.


Woodlyn Park

 

Planes, trains and hobbit holes

 

One of our favourites. After you’ve caved and rafted in Waitomo, rest up for the next day’s action in one of these wacky rooms.

     

Circa60

 

Get your retro on in Martinborough

 

Martinborough is cool anytime, but this place takes cool to new heights. Make sure you take your martini supplies.


Mudcastle

 

Claim your throne in this mudcastle

 

Want to act out your own personal Game of Thrones? Try this castle on for size. I’ll be Jon Snow, you can be Joffrey!

 


 
 

 
 


 
 

Thanks for putting up with the awful puns. Have a great April, a wonderful Easter and get out around this gorgeous country of ours!

Cheers,

The Travelbug team
