"Watch out for the booby traps!"
The curious spectacle, of sheep munching away at the green grass on a golf course, had drawn my attention, and the ominous warning from a nearby golfer. He was referring of course, to the dark droppings of the wandering four-legged mammals, that littered the green. Turns out the sheep, of which there are millions in New Zealand, are very effective lawn mowers... and they "fertilize" the land too!
A two-week road trip, exploring the unique diversity of this small island nation, turned into a true Kiwi adventure, as I hiked up soaring 10,000 ft volcanoes, trekked through steaming hot lagoons, explored the majestic fjords of Milford Sound, and ran into Kiwi traffic jams, caused by of course- sheep!
From the grassy plains, black sand beaches, and mountainous coasts of the South Island; to the steamy, volcanic North Island, see why this small and beautiful nation, became the setting for the acclaimed mystical movie, "Lord of the Rings".
An engaging 90 minute show with atmospheric music and lively Â travel lore!
to be missed!
