In the interim, things will have changed somewhat. The village itself has a harbour setting, heritage buildings, and French colonial influence. I'm just saying the books aren't for me. When the plentiful, low-skilled work that attracted them dried up, the dream soured, and the population has suffered with poor health and education. Ignore the price tag One mistake I see many people making in the bookstores—and I hang around the travel section an unhealthy amount —is buying a guide based on the cover price.

But you don't have to be an extreme athlete to enjoy New Zealand. Featuring lovely terraced gardens filled with colourful sculptures and mosaics by the artist Jodie Martin, as well as French style interiors, it's a lovely spot to spend an hour or two. However, the publisher has put these books on hold for now, and new editions have not come out for a few years. In summer the ferries are very busy, and this is a charming little centre with plenty to do. At the same time, I'm not a fan of hostelsnor of hanging out with students bent solely on partying their way through Europe, so I've no use for Let's Go and its ilk.

The lodge has a fully equipped kitchen, but they also do a continental breakfast for guests. Personal favorites I know I promised to list my faves—but I cannot stress enough the importance of buying the guide that's best for you. About one in four households in Auckland has a seacraft of some kind, and there are beaches within an hour's drive depending on the traffic; during the week many are quite empty except for the two weeks that include Christmas and New Year. Don't even look at the price when choosing a guide. It can be hard to read if your eyes are tired or if you have trouble reading without glasses. Inspire and delight your loved ones this holiday season with books that take them to the far corners of the world with photos, recipes, postcards, and stories.

The copyright date printed on the page with all that fine Fodors New Zealand. book near the very front of the book in British-published books, sometimes it's at the backis a good guide, but it only tells you which year in rare cases down to the month the book actually hit the store shelves.

Depends on what you want to do in NZ! Originally, LP was focused on the budget market and designed for backpackers who wanted an overview of absolutely everything they needed to know to travel a particular country.

There are also maps for certain areas. Books are delightful, but heavy and bulky, which your back will not thank you for. No part of the country is more than km 79 miles from the sea, and a coastline spread with splendid beaches dishes up thousands of beautiful coastal walks and chances to surf and soak in the sun.

So cut your guide a little bit of slack when its info proves a little stale, and please stop insisting to hotel owners that they are somehow law-bound to charge the rates printed in your dog-eared edition of Let's Go hoteliers complain about this to me all the time.

After many months traveling thousands of miles, testing mattresses, comparing prices, leaping off cliff tops well, almostspeeding up rivers, and eating and drinking in far too many restaurants, I am more convinced than ever that New Zealand is one of the quirkiest, quaintest, craziest places on earth.
