The sun shows up here first for a reason. Come for bracing light or caverns underground, glacial valleys or black volcanic sand. Tour every landscape on earth, all rolled into one country. Dig for pipis on the beach, or sample oysters on a platter. Savour solitude with a view, or city culture. Things are never just black and white in New Zealand.

Stick Out Your Tongue‚€“ taste the freshest seafood, world-class wines, or the best lamb roast there is.

Roll Your Eyes‚€“ yet another magnificent view of mystical mountains, braided river plains or calming coastlines.

Slap Your Thighs‚€“ a good time‚€™s easy to find, from happening Auckland to waterfront Wellington.

Stand Up Proud‚€“ and experience Maori culture firsthand: take part in a powhiri, or fill your puku at a hangi.

Run At It Shouting‚€“ bungy jump, sea kayak, surf, trek and hit the white water with the best of them.

About the author (2006)

Bain was born in Melbourne, Australia and first visited the Greek Islands as a teenager. For the last few years Lonely Planet has allowed her to trade a Melbourne winter for a European summer.

I have waited a long time to gain the life experience I felt was necessary to do this story justice. It is graphic and disturbing in places but I make no apology for that - some stories need to be told. Young girls are groomed, abducted and abused on a regular basis around the world and still parents are blind to the possible dangers around them. I am a mother of three little ones and of course I worry about them.... But what if one of them becomes the danger? What would I do? What would you do? It's time for mother to be the judge. Connect with my page 'Mother be the Judge' page Facebook or on my website 'sallyo'', or follow me on twitter 'BigsallO'. Would love a #motherbethejudge tweet. Oh and btw, Yes I am looking for an agent x
