AA Directions Autumn 2018

OK New Zealand, let's find a solution - find that person lost in the bush, connect a tiny rural school to the world, get rid of pests, help boys grow up positively, detonate landmines safely... Seems there's no problem too great or too small for the people we talked to for this issue. We also pack our bags and head to the South Island on a road trip, learn rich history in the central North Island and take to the clear waters of Niue for a spot of whale watching.
