    ... widely in NZ but not so much in AU, and guns are easy to get in NZ and extremely hard to get in AU. In New Zealand, you just register yourself (vs registering each gun like we do in the U.S.) and then you can buy a gun after someone comes out to your house, interviews you and your neighbors, and does basically a mini psych eval on you.

    My foot felt rather sore and I hadn't slept well. Deb kindly let me have a lie in and settled the hotel bill, rearranged our hire car collection time and organised a taxi for our next stay. We skipped breakfast and walked to the harbour to catch the ferry to Rangitoto. Deb patiently accepted my reduced limping pace. We boarded the boat unperturbed by the leaden grey sky and gentle rain.

    ... their canoes. Despite the felling of whole forests by the white settlers, many have survived and are now preserved in conservation areas. The largest living specimen in New Zealand is Tane Mahuta, (The Father of the Forest). No photograph can do the might of this tree justice, the canopy being more than 50 metres above the ground and it's girth more than thirteen metres. Today our journey north from Dargaville took us through the native forest ...
