Walking the South Island
Berni Moestafa, contributor from Jakata, walks part of the South Island. “New Zealand has many faces. It is a sub-tropical forest with lush ferns and unusual old trees, or a strip of perfect white beach, an underground world of moist … caves; not just about mountains and lakes. There is much to see for a country about twice the size of Java. A third of the land is protected and despite much … wilderness the country is free of dangerous and poisonous animals, all this means to communicate … which the country benefits through a well-developed tourism industry.
