When I was a kid of about 12, I went on a Boy Scout trip to the South Island (of New Zealand) and for over 50 years since I’ve never stopped travelling the length and breadth of this breathtakingly beautiful country. Over those years I’ve published a variety of Visitors Guides, trying to transmit to other travellers the things I’ve learned that will enhance their visit.
Breaking free of the limitations, the linearity, of printers, paper and ink I committed these ideas to the ether of the information highway.
It never ceases to amaze me, as someone who talks to many hundreds of travellers just as they are about to set out on their journey of discovery, that they have no idea of where to go. I guess they just potter along taking whatever comes along . . .and that’s OK. Except isn’t it galling to find, after you got home and started to read the instructions, that just two or three kms from your set track was something really fascinating, something you’d really liked to have done or seen or experienced?
