Canterbrian Miss October

NZ takes out the October slot of  Lonely Planet‘s year planner for 2003. “Take one of the world’s great train journeys, the Tranzalpine, across the southern alps […] the varied scenery takes in the Canterbury Plains, a labyrinth of gorges known as the Staircase and valleys encircled by dense beech forest.” NZ also holds two out of six spots in Lonely Planet‘s “must-see” natural wonders of 2003: with whale-watching in Kaikoura, and a premium view of November’s total eclipse of the sun.
