I started this blog in 2013, as the result of a suggestion from a very clever person I know.
The idea at the time was to chronicle my exploration of the Midlands, as a New Zealander finding my way around the local attractions, traditions, foods and accents.
After eight years as a journalist in my native New Zealand as well as India, Afghanistan, Germany and parts of the UK, the Midlands was another adventure.
But in January 2014, I moved to London where I’m still working in the news business.
I feel slightly dishonest in continuing to call this blog “midlandskiwi” but I didn’t want to change it.
But I’m different. You’ll see.
