      i never really got used to the lack of a horizon in oz and on holidays i would seek out the most beautiful local spots

      where i'd normally find nice little hills with an expansive view of scrubby trees and rocks

      and that was pretty much everywhere on the continent

      nothing quite like the rees-dart at the head of wakatipu
