While the big wet has plagued the North Island this summer, particularly on the east coast, it's been a different story at the other end of the country. High pressure systems have kept the South Island relatively dry, particularly parts of Otago and Southland which have seen limited rainfall. That's seen some councils impose water restrictions in some areas, like Mosgiel and the Queenstown lakes district as well as fire bans. Kathryn talks to the Metservice about what's on the cards for the south, and Queenstown Lakes District Mayor Glyn Lewers about the restrictions.

In this episode: The FAQ is: How do those from other nations view American travelers? The destination is New Zealand, South Island. The lesson learned is: getting ripped of while traveling. and the tip is to listen to other podcasts about travel, besides this one from Dr Mary Travelbest, of course.    FAQ : How do others view American travelers?   The answer is a bit uncomfortable to even ask but realistic. To those in foreign countries, they may look at Americans in a negative light, mostly because they only know what they see in the news media. America has the “World Series” in baseball, but it's all teams from the USA and Canada. Being the greatest nation in the world may not serve the needs of people in other countries, so remember that you are a representative of your home nation, wherever you go. Overall, New Zealand was one country that really liked American travelers. https://www.pewresearch.org/global/2020/09/15/us-image-plummets-internationally-as-most-say-country-has-handled-coronavirus-badly/ Best of Independent Destination- New Zealand's South Island My friend Jenny Latto, from near Auckland, New Zealand is traveling inside of her country due to the pandemic and she's enjoying it more than ever since the tourists are almost all Kiwis these days. She's going to travel with a few friends to the South Island for a holiday, and a Multisport race. The team does running, cycling, kayaking, and more. Check the South Island map of New Zealand and how green it is. One city you may have heard of is Christchurch, where there was a big earthquake and a massacre. Christchurch is hotter than Auckland since it's not surrounded by water. When I visited New Zealand, I flew Air New Zealand and loved the service from start to finish. I flew all over the country and it was easy to get around, and lovely to see all the sheep. Once you can travel there, be sure to give yourself time to know the people as well as the beauty there.   If I had limited time in New Zealand, I would visit the Milford Sound, not far from Queenstown on the western side of the south island. One of my worldly traveled friends told me he thinks it's the best part of the earth. In many ways, this area has similar sights to Norway. The boat trip through the fjords was somewhat magical to me. The waterfalls are stunning. There's plenty more to see, so look in the show notes.   Franz Josef Glacier is where you can see the glacier firsthand and upclose. I started as a passenger in a plane on land, and minutes later I was ended up walking on the glacier. Franz Josef Glacier is one of the steepest glaciers in New Zealand, descending from its origins high in the Southern Alps deep into the lush native rainforest of Westland's National Park. It also moves faster than your average glacier. This creates some truly incredible features in the glacier such as ice caves, tunnels and crevasses; all of which are constantly changing and evolving so no two days are ever the same.    https://www.franzjosefglacier.com/   Ride a chairlift above town in Queenstown https://www.queenstownnz.co.nz/   https://www.milford-sound.co.nz/about/   Be sure to listen to the North Island episode of New Zealand, too. Today's Lesson learned-Getting ripped off while traveling. When did I get ripped off? I almost never get taken when I'm traveling. Most people have been especially nice and thoughtful to me. However, here's what happened to my friend, a very seasoned traveler. She was walking in a large downtown city, a construction zone, so the sidewalk was narrow. It was nighttime, and someone walked up to her, asked her a question, and then physically took her entire backpack and ran away with it. That's the kind of story that sounds made up but it wasn't. So if you're ever in an area that may seem to be trouble, make sure that you have an escape. If you are wearing a hidden money belt, that's the safest you can be.

Is the new mess the new normal? And is that why we put up with it?   I read yesterday about Amsterdam's airport and the complete cluster it has become. Heathrow is already famous for similar shambles. So, when we look at Auckland Airport and its non-function, are we just another example of what's happening all over the place? A large number of companies have left or are leaving Chicago because of crime and their liberal approach to it. So, are our ram raids really just a local version of their various statistics that have broken new records? Is everyone soft on crime? There are similar stories in Los Angeles and Brits moving back home after years because of the homelessness. We were warned about San Francisco last week when booking airfares. It's not a place to be for too long we were told. Australia is adjusting its immigration settings because they can't find anyone to do the work. We can't find anyone to do the work. So, are our labour troubles any worse than anyone else's troubles? We had yet another school holiday call from friends in Queenstown. The place is shut, restaurants can't open seven days, there are no staff. But they were the people that rang us last time and said the same thing. Once upon a time, word of mouth meant something. We didn't put up with it and we went elsewhere. It seems these days we keep going back and simply moan a bit more. And not just moan but pay more for it. Everything costs a fortune. We got the text this week about three gin and tonics in London costing $130. Our boss here just got back from Las Vegas and New York. He told us it costs a fortune and he wept at what he was paying. But are we travelling? Yes we are. We can't get on a plane fast enough to pay through the nose, lose our bag, get our flight delayed, and then ring home to moan about it all. If you look, there is trouble everywhere. The cost of power, the threat of recession, the price of fish, the lack of labour, the political anger, and the overall general dysfunction. A lot of it doesn't actually make sense. There is no logic to it. In a cost-of-living crisis, we can't stop spending. We like paying extra and we keep going back when the experience was crap. How do we explain this? Or have we just given up? Have we got the "it is what it is" attitude? Is this why we didn't vote in the elections? We don't care. It changes nothing and besides we were on holiday looking for our bags. Will these days be seen as the mad, crazed, unhinged mess they are? Or is it the new normal? And we don't even realise what's happened to us?See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

An aviation veteran says the proposed new international airport in Central Otago is unnecessary and will negatively impact the local area. Christchurch International Airport, owned by the council and crown, is planning to build an airport in Tarras, capable of landing wide-bodied jets. So far it has spent $45 million buying farm land in the sparsely populated valley, and claims the airport terminal it builds will be "climate positive". Norm Thompson is a former Air New Zealand deputy chief executive, former Queenstown airport board member, and deputy chair of MBIE's Tourism Infrastructure Fund. He received the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to aviation and tourism. He says there is plenty of capacity in existing airports. Kathryn also speaks with Suze Keith from the local group Sustainable Tarras which says the airport project will be damaging to the environment and could end up being a white elephant for Christchurch ratepayers. Michael Singleton from Christchurch International Airport responds.

Welcome back to Unsinkable, I've missed you all! Join me in this tale of young love, forbidden romance, and a search for historical accuracy as I investigate the tale of Mary Mullin and Denis Lennon, two third class passengers from Ireland who boarded at Cobh, then Queenstown; their story is lean in facts but rich in mythology. Part of this story takes us to the 1990s, when a medical journalist named Monica O'Hara Keegan wrote about her past life regressions into a character that might have been some version of Mary. Trust me, it'll make some sense once you listen. This episode is a great mix of discussion about methodology and a bit of travelogue, as I share my family's experience in Cobh just this past August.Cheers!Here's a link to Monica's book:https://www.amazon.com/Died-Titanic-Monica-OHara-Keeton/dp/0907768865Support the show
