Introduction

The 2003 travelogue is, as usual, closely based on a regular series of lighthearted Emails sent out as "News from The Antipodes". They were written as we went on our venerable HP95 and transferred to the Libretto via the IR link, copied into an email, superficially spell checked and sent. They were not in any way polished and only the most gross errors have been removed here.

The emails have been consolidated, divided into a logical series of pages and illustrated with pictures from Pauline's camera and stills from the Peter's digital video camera.

Some of the content was included specifically to update pages covering specific topics - progress is shown below. It has taken a little time as this years "News" totaled over 40,000 words (circa 50 A4 pages) and over 180 pictures have been used so far.

All the pictures on the pages provide details of where they were taken if you hover over them and they can all be clicked to open a larger version in a new pop-up Window.
