Still South

The trip to Dunedin took us through the lovely Gore – the brown trout capital of the world, did you know? It was a really nice drive up through Southland and into South Otago – some great looking dairy farms and Fonterra trucks running around all over the place.

It was great to be back in my old varsity town of Dunedin. The Xero team took a slow cruise down Castle Street; we passed the wreckage from the awful recent Undie 500 riots. We drove very slowly past the Gardies – fantastic memories just came flooding back…oh to be 18 again. We then popped into Poppa’s pizza for lunch, the best Pizza in the world…and even better, yes they had heard of Xero. Wahooo!!

That night we had a very good turn-out at the Otago Museum for our presentation. We were well received and fielded some interesting comments and observations made by the attending accountants. Gee I love you guys when you get this stuff!

We then went out to the Captain Cook Tavern for a refreshing ale, and relived memories of the glory days. Just one beer though, needed an early night to crack onto Christchurch. The trip to Christchurch was fairly uneventful, although the ‘breakfast steak, onion and tomato’ pie we got from Palmerston was lovely, especially at 8:30 in the morning. They keep the pie warmers on 24/7 down there.

Big crowd for the Christchurch event with some of the big four and mid tier firms represented. There was some great discussion about how Xero could be used to provide proactive services to small business owners. I like your thinking Christchurch…the more feedback the better.
