Follow me on Mission Kiwi

Hello again. If you wondered why I've not been galloping around in my lederhosen recently it's because I was time-outing Down Under. Perhaps you've been following my travels on Howes Out. When I get down to deciphering all the notes I scribbled on the back of old maps there'll hopefully be a book out too. Meanwhile there's a lovely report on my Kiwi travels in The Weekly Telegraph.

New Zealand has to be one of the most beautiful, contrast-rich lands in the world and I'd love to share it with you. I do school and college presentations and will be happy to give a slide show and talk on Mission Kiwi if I'm in your area. Contact Know Howe
                                         

Wecome to Mission Kiwi - follow me......


Oh, and here's how I imagine the publicity blurb on the inside cover:


"The Howes always regarded their home in deepest rural Bavaria as way out in the sticks – almost a good hour’s drive from any decently sized town. Until, that is, a 3-month time out takes them to New Zealand. Travelling from Auckland to South Island they stay with local folks, living like Kiwis. Staying inexpensively and often free, but always in stunning mountain top, harbour-view, beachside locations; and invariably remote. But none so out of the way as mainland Takaka – accessible only by boat, 5-seater plane or a winding up-and-down-the mountain track. Will their stays at the end of countless dust tracks, often hours away from the nearest sizeable town, change their view of what it means to ‘live out on a limb’? And, after endless discussions on the ups and downs of moving to New Zealand, will they finally opt to “give it a go” Down Under? From Puttenhausen to Takaka – ex pat Brit Tim Howe gives an amusing insight into travelling a country so far flung yet so familiarly British."
