Introduction to New Zealand

NZ is a great place to live, which is why it's such a great place to visit. In New Zealand you can still see how the world might have been . . . if only . . .

  • If only discovery hadn't led to despoliation. . .
  • If only high populations hadn't produced high pollution. . .
  • If only industrialisation hadn't led to exploitation. . .

Here in NZ we're not quite as far down those roads as much of the rest of the world. Here it's still possible to find true solitude - a place where, just maybe, no one's ever trodden before. . .

It's a country that could have been made with Backpackers in mind. An independent traveller with an open mind and a flexible itinerary can enjoy the fast disappearing freedom of simply wandering from place to place as the fancy dictates:

  • hanging around to find out what makes it tick;
  • moving on to get another view;
  • digging in to refresh the soul;
  • breaking out to test the spirit of adventure;
  • organised orgasmic adventure like sky diving and bungi jumping;
  • or the more personal self-sufficient adventure of tramping wild places.

Soon, all of this will be available through the virtual reality terminal on the front panel of your personal life-support system, but for now it's available only through the personal life support system on your back.

Take a chance on yourself.

Cast off the shackles of a planned route or a three day whistle-stop tour and leave your return ticket open-dated.

Convinced? . . . . . . . . Great !! . . . . . . . . . CONGRATULATIONS!!!

Pull on your pack, slip into your walking shoes, and head for some memorable experiences.
