Haven’t actually been there, but I am planning to go next year, only fair since they’ve named a mountain after me ;). Linz (Land Information New Zealand) just released a new series of 1:50k today, so I headed over expecting it part with a fair amount of cash to buy all the maps I needed to walk the 1800 mile Te Araroa. Much to my delight you can download them all for free!
Good work New Zealand, I only wish more countries would make their maps available for free :)
Whimsical and compact, the LV Pochette is the perfect way to carry those everyday essentials to that special party, invite or premiere. Made from soft and stretchy fabrics all the items in the range are coloured with natural dyes to minimise impact on the environment.

First time I’ve been on your website and I’m so impressed to find your a fan of New Zealand. Grew up in Hokitika but spent last christmas at Mt.Cook. Two must sees.
Yay! Come via Sydney, we have a spare room!
No shit! That walk looks amazing. I’ve spent a few months in New Zealand, the people and scenery (and surf) are amazing!
