    Due to the cold winter and hot summer most of NZ carrots are grown there. Many towns in NZ have a statue for what they are known for - carrots

    When I was over there in 2001 I passed through Sausage town. I must say the sausages were tremendous

    That looks a great journey Dartplayer, I can't wait for the rain and wind to stop, and our summer to start, so I can get out for a ride. I'm sure I'm starting to get rust. :(
