When any of us travel overseas we try to bring back a snowglobe as a momento of the visit.
Each snowglobe tells a story about someone from the Creative HQ whanau travelling around the world looking to get sales, raising capital, undertaking market research, meeting with an expert or taking a well deserved break. Some of us haven't got out of the country yet so a few kiwi globes have made the cut.
Snowglobes are really hard to transport (especially after 9/11) and a fair few have been broken or confiscated on the return journey. But the ones who made it are listed here.
