|Touring New Zealand 2007 - Introduction|
This year we had planned to take a break from doing our holiday write up but within days of the usual start we were contacted by some of our usual recipients asking when we were starting so it looks like we will have to carry on. The 2007 travelogue is therefore, as usual, written as we go. They started as a regular series of lighthearted Emails sent out as "News from The Antipodes"where the text was writen on a palmtop and copied into the emails with little polishing and only a superficial spell check. This year they will be written partly on our new XDA Executive palmtop and partly on a laptop running Linux for security on the move. We will repeated the approach we have used for the last couple of years and uplifted them as we go to our web site and limit the emails to a summary.
We added some pictures as we went 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 this page 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 an Overlay (Lightbox style) or Popup Window. The image display options can be changed using the settings links at the bottom right corner of every page which includes pictures. The 'Spanner' icon or the following link takes one to a page covering the Image Display Options in more detail including bandwidth reduction options.
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:
