    On that basis, New Zealand really is very, very isolated. In fact, there’s almost nowhere more isolated, except maybe Tierra Del Fuego and Antarctica. No wonder I like the place so much.

    That spot on the map would almost be on top of the almighty Pitcairn Island?
    Mmm, Pitcairn – -are those guys all out of gaol yet?

      My bad. I had to reinstall google earth, as my version kept crashing.
      But, Pitcairn is quite a bit further north to that dot. Possible around where the top of the circle is.
