Touring in New Zealand 2004 - Introduction

The 2004 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 "new to us" Toshiba Protege, superficially spell checked copied into an email 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, mostly with pictures from Pauline's new Digital Canon A70 Camera, plus some from Film and stills from the Peter's digital video camera. A number of pictures from previous years are included where they have that something extra.

It has taken a little time as this years "News" totaled 47,500 words (circa 65 A4 pages of content if you want to print it all) and over 160 new pictures have been included.
