The Stuff.co.nz writes, “While some of us suffer back-to-work blues, the holiday continues for some – but not all – MPs”.

Where have your summer holidays taken you so far?

I’ve been to Costa Rica and to Ponsonby. Costa Rica was amazing, pretty lush in terms of the rainforests – I was doing a roadtrip with one of my mates.

What did you do for Christmas?

I was trekking through rainforests in Costa Rica – it was really nice, really relaxed. I celebrated Christmas with my family a couple of weeks early: with our family we just have a day where we get together and that’s what we do, it doesn’t really matter whether it’s on Christmas Day.

How did you see in the New Year?

I was with about 5,000 people on Jaco Beach with fireworks and bonfires – it was actually pretty hairy because there were lots of people letting off fireworks in different directions, but it was quite a sight.

Worst fail of the holiday?

I thought I was going on a tour [in Costa Rica] to see some cuddly monkeys and bright birds – instead, I saw tarantulas, giant ants and poisonous snakes, and I’m pretty scared of spiders. Also, my little cat, Lily, has hurt her leg so I’ve been trying to manage a three-legged cat, which is pretty hard because she just loves jumping everywhere.
