Includes extracts from the works of J.B.S. Haldane, Stephen Jay Gould, Albert Einstein, D'Arcy Thompson, Alan Turing, Richard Feynman, C.P. Snow, James Watson, Martin Rees, Steve Pinker, Jared DIamond, and Erwin Schrodinger among others.
It's inspirational to meet a family that's taken the plunge to leave the rat race and establish themselves in the country. This couple not only managed to keep their jobs, but also build a stunning house on the Coromandel Peninsula that has caught the eye of NZIA judges.
Kia ora Waikato, it's time to dust off that old camera, get out and about and show the rest of your neighbours your favourite, treasured spots in your region. It could be an awesome view, the shy wildlife or even the old buildings that are wanting their stories to be told.
Go ahead, get snapping and illustrate what's beyond your backyard.
