sample southland, nz

AT ONE TIME OR another it was thought that there were more sheep than people down in the depths of Southland in New Zealand’s South Island. It is the place made famous by none other than Burt Munro, the World’s Fastest Kiwi On An Indian, and can be home to some insane weather. Invercargill is where I’m talking about and venturing to see Southland is a must on any South Island NZ trip.

CAN’T ARGUE WITH the Italians. Coffee, motorcycles and living life like there is no tomorrow, right! I have sat in dark and hip cafés in Milan, with the persistent grey rain pouring down outside. Sipping espresso after espresso, waiting for the darkness to lift and craving some freedom and space. You can’t argue with the Italians wanting an excuse to escape the claustrophobia of Italy. Fabio Meloni, the chief guy from the famed Italian magazine Motociclismo, explained it. “We wished to come to Australia to see beaches, girls and ride into wide-open spaces.” And so five young Italian men jumped off their Airbus 380 with 40 kilo bags each, stuffed with brand new kit, into… a gloomy, wet, chilly Sydney winter's day. Conditions that were to persist for a few days more. Waiting…
