Te Wai Pounamu – The Glorious South of the South Island
Paperback | English
Awesome! Amazing! Beautiful! Stunning! Spectacular!
These are some of the words the author uses to describe many of the sights seen on this “trip-of-a-life-time” to the south of the South Island, undertaken when the closure of Aotearoa/New Zealand’s borders, during the Covid-19 pandemic, made domestic travel easily accessible for the first time in decades.
In addition to providing a personal record of a wonderful experience, this book also touches on the history of some of the places visited, chronicles New Zealand’s dealings with The Virus up to the end of 2021, and, most importantly, gives a glimpse, to those who haven’t visited this region, of what is arguably one of the loveliest, most pristine places on Earth.
