|Touring New Zealand 2006 - Introduction
The 2006 travelogue is, as usual, written as we go as part of the regular series of lighthearted Emails we have sent out for many years as "News from The Antipodes". In the past the initial text version was copied into the emails with little polishing and only a superficial spell check.
This year we have repeated the approach we used last year and uplifted them as we went to our web site and limiting the emails to a summary.
We have mostly used pictures from Pauline's Digital Canon A75 Camera along with some of the best previous pictures from Film and stills from the Peter's digital video camera. All the pictures on the pages provide details of where they were taken if you hover the cursor over them and they can all be clicked to open a larger version in a popup window. The popup windows are reused and then closed up when you leave the page so you do not need to close them. Our digital pictures (from 2004) are in two resolutions and the initial size depends on your screen size. You can chose the small size if you have a slow internet connection or want to restrict data flow on a mobile connection. Click here for high detail popup images and click here for lower resolution images. You can also toggle the resolution by double-clicking an image but it may take an extra click to display the picture in the new size on some browsers. With some systems you may be asked to if you wish to allow popup windows as a protection against adverts. More
After each visit we also try to extract more from the chronological organisation and consolidate the content into specific pages. Some background pages which may be of interest are:
