have a nice day
‘Hospo’ work is massive in New Zealand, with tourism being one of the primary drivers in the country. It’s often said that you’ll struggle to meet a Queenstown local during the ski season, such is the influx of seasonal workers to the town. This is because of the seasonal draw of the place, and it shows the true importance of every hospitality worker and business. Plus, when they all come together for the hospo’ nights out, it’s certainly lively!
