Lonely Planet Kiwi Tracks: A New Zealand Journey by Andrew Stevenson

Lonely Planet Kiwi Tracks: A New Zealand Journey by Andrew Stevenson (hier online bestellen)

The story:
New Zealand is the stated subject of Andrew Stevenson's Kiwi Tracks but his inner emotions, life history and candid backpacking experiences interweave to form an engaging subtext. Stevenson spent four months on the road, two months on South Island and two on North Island. He bypassed the urban centres as often as he could to walk through the National Parks, Fiordland and stroll along Ninety Mile Beach. In search of the spirit of the places, he talks to fellow travellers and locals, immersing himself in the "generosity and hospitality of Kiwis".
