"The world begins to feel very
small when one finds one can get half round it in three months."
Butler, January 27 1860, on arrival at Lyttelton, NZ from London on
"The Roman Emperor" which sailed September
1859. He'd originally been booked on the "Burmah", which
disappeared without trace. You have landed, you
can now get around NZ in seconds.
