Our young women are ex­celling at present with Lorde win­ning Gram­mys. We fea­tured her back in Au­tumn. Now it’s our young 17 year old pro­fes­sional golfer Ly­dia Ko. Steve Khatib takes a look at this young phe­nom­ena and how she is al­ready pick­ing up cheques in ex­cess of a mil­lion dol­lars by win­ning against the most sea­soned pros.

Alas­dair Thom­son gives us an in­side view into wa­ter sports around New Zealand both the sit­ting and stand­ing va­ri­eties. En­joy his guide to some of the best places in New Zealand to board and pad­dle.

Alan Brady the found­ing Fa­ther of Wine in the Cen­tral Otago re­gion pro­vides us with how he found that the re­gion lent it­self to suc­cess­ful wine grow­ing. This pi­o­neer­ing feat led to the revered Pinot Noir.

The big “buzz” in this edi­tion is a flight with Sir Richard “Han­ni­bal” Hayes into an un­touched part of our beau­ti­ful coun­try. “Knight Fly­ing” was one of my most mem­o­rable travel ex­pe­ri­ences.

Our re­gions have some in­ter­est­ing in­for­ma­tion and some awe­some gen­uine ex­pe­ri­ence sto­ries to help with your hol­i­day plans.

Our new web site is now live at www.go­trav­el­newzealand. com it is also a mine of in­for­ma­tion with archived edi­tions of the magazine and some great in­ter­ac­tive op­tions.
