English by birth. Australian by chance, All Blacks fan by choice : Charles Rawlings-Way considers himself a worldly lad, but his early understanding of Aotearoa was less than comprehensive (sheep, mountains, sheep on mountains). He realised there was more to it when a wandering uncle returned with a faux-jade tiki in 1981. He wore it with pride until he saw the NZ cricket team's beige unifonns in 1982... But Wellington's bars, Mt Taranaki's snowy summit and Raglan's point breaks have helped him forgive : he's once again smitten with NZ's phantasmal landscapes, disarming locals, and determination to sculpt its own political and indigenous destiny. On his third research trip to the "mainland", Brett Atkinson explored Maori rock art, stayed in a historie cottage in the Gibbston Valley, and negotiated a penny-farthing bicycle around Oamaru. Two weeks researching earthquake-damaged Christchurch left him even more impressed with the resilience and determination of the people of Canterbury. Brett has covered ten countries for Lonely Planet, and more than 40 countries as a freelance travel and food writer. After nearly a decade working for off-shore publishing companies, Peter Dragicevich's life has come full circle, returning to West Auckland where he was raised. As Managing Editor of Auckland-based Express newspaper he spent much of the nineties writing about the local arts, club and bar scenes. This is the third edition of the New Zealand guide he's worked on and, after dozens of Lonely Planet assignments, it remains his favourite gig. Raised at the top of the South, Sarah Bennett migrated to Wellington at 16 and has lived there even since, except for various travels and a stint in London working at Lonely Planet's UK office. An arguably flawed guidebook writer due to eternal optimism and irrepressible patriotism ("New Zealand, what's not to like ?"), she nevertheless strives to find fault, particularly in relation to baked goods and beer selection. Sarah is joined in this endless quest by her husband and co-writer, Lee Slater. English by birth and now a naturalised New Zealander, Lee's first career as an engineer has seen him travel extensively around Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and the Caucasus. Sarah and Lee are co-authors of Let's Go Camping and The New Zealand Tramper's Handbook. They are also freelance feature writers for newspapers and magazines, including the Dominion Post and Wilderness.Présentation de l'éditeur :
