Unforgettable sights

“New Zealand is no single thing, stretched as it is across 1 miles in the Roaring Forties, from businesslike Auckland in the north to the uninhabited, penguin-covered Snares Islands in the remote and windy south,” the London Evening Standard’s Godfrey Barker describes. “But everywhere its essence is nature and natural beauty.” Do not miss, Barker writes: “Seals, sealions, penguins, whales, dolphins: New Zealand is a zoo; the terse and interesting treaty between the Crown and the Maoris in 184, on the wall at Waitangi. 1: We give you back your land. 2. Should you sell it, HMG has first option. 3. That’s it. It’s worded more elegantly, but as briefly.” Barker recommends taking a “video camera and lithium batteries. New Zealand means photography in overdrive. Fieldglasses. What a picture show; the birds fly high.”
