Selling your stamps – Stamp supplier and dealer based in Dunedin, New Zealand
Selling your stamps?The two usual scenarios are:
- You have decided, after all the years of collecting, that you need to dispose of your collection. The reasons are many – your health is failing; your spouse wants the wardrobe back; you are moving into a smaller house or retirement village; or you simply have decided to stop.
- You have inherited a collection, but simply have no interest in it; you don’t have the room to store 40 albums; or you are moving overseas and don’t want to take them with you.
Now what?The main options are:
- Selling Outright to a Dealer. For most people, this is the best, and the most convenient option, as the transaction should be neat and tidy, with immediate payment, and you know exactly where you are. And there’s always the chance that an experienced dealer will spot a hidden gem, for the benefit of both parties.
- Sale By Auction. This is often a good option for extremely valuable or highly specialised collections, or for key rarities where a value is difficult to establish. It can take several months however, and part of it might not sell.
- Disposal Yourself Through Online Auctions. An option for lower value material, or where you have experience in this, and have a lot of time. Once you start, you will have to go through to the end, as no-one will want the remnants.
With over 50 years of experience and expertise in the industry, I am happy to give you advice on the material you have, and the best way to dispose of it if you wish to do so.
If you decide to bring in a collection for assessment, please phone or email me to arrange an appointment for a day and time that is suitable for both of us. For small collections you can bring them in on a Wednesday, but suggest contacting first to ensure I am available. You don’t need to tidy or “sort” things. Often this can reduce the value, and be a total waste of your time.
How long does it take?Most collections can be done on the spot. Please do not be concerned if some albums are done quickly. With experience you get to know what to expect in many collections within a few pages, particularly with “beginner” albums.
For large collections, particularly where lengthy calculating is involved, you might have to leave with me for a period. Usually 48 hours maximum. But I will fit around your requirements and time frame as much as possible. All care is taken, and your collection is insured while on my secure and alarmed premises.
As I mention elsewhere, I am a Past President of the NZSDA, and a current member of the Executive, so my reputation speaks for itself.
I am happy to look at anything in stamps, covers, postcards, and old documents.
Competitive prices particularly offered for:
- NZ Decimal Postage and Sheet Lots.
- Better NZ Collections.
- Selected NZ Key items
- NZ Post Products, such as Year Albums, Year Packs, and set packs.
- Mint NZ Decimal Collections.
- Postcards – to around 1940 (Original Old Albums, collections, or single rarities).
- NZ Revenue Stamps, Old Documents, etc.
- Old Wages Books, and accumulations of Wage Tax Stamps.
- Military or Forces Mail(From NZ Wars until Timor!).
- Old envelopes and correspondence – pre 1950 (The more “boring” looking, the better).
With old envelopes or postcards, please do not try to “improve” them, by cutting/soaking the stamps off, nor writing on them. And note my comment – often the most uninteresting looking old envelopes have the most value.
Have I told you philately that I love you?
Like this year’s global pandemic, the international resurgence in young people collecting stamps appears to be slow reaching our shores. Bruce Munro goes hunting for young Kiwi philatelists and talks to enthusiasts about the allure of stamps and stamp-collecting.
Talk about social distancing. The young Otago man sounded like he was being asked to describe the time he went to the supermarket in his grandfather’s hand-me-downs, when The Weekend Mix phoned to ask about his stamp collection.
“No, I wouldn’t be interested in being in the paper for that,” he says.
It is not the expected response, especially given that he reportedly has quite an impressive collection.
“It’s a bit of an odd hobby,” he adds, explaining his reluctance.
Which is not the best start to inquiries about an apparent international swing back to stamp collecting among younger generations.
Postage stamps — bits of government-issued paper gummed to letters proving a postage fee has been pre-paid — were first used in England almost two centuries ago. May 6 marks the 180th anniversary of those original penny black and tuppenny blue stamps.
From then, it took only a year for stamp collecting to begin. In 1841, an advertisement was placed in London’s The Times newspaper: “A young lady being desirous of covering her dressing-room with cancelled postage stamps invites the assistance of strangers in her project”.
Within 20 years, there were philatelic (stamp collecting) societies in many countries.
In 1855, New Zealand joined the pre-paid post world with one penny, tuppenny and one shilling stamps featuring the head and shoulders of Queen Victoria.
Collecting stamps and arranging them thematically in albums became a popular pastime for all ages.
Two generations ago, most New Zealand towns and cities had flourishing stamp clubs, in addition to large stamp clubs at almost every intermediate and secondary school.
But times changed. The digital world, in particular, appeared to deal a death blow to stamps and stamp collecting.
Email decimated postal mail. Three decades ago, New Zealand Post produced 320million stamps a year. Now it is less than a tenth of that figure.
In Western countries, online video games have taken their toll on the full gamut of real-world sports and leisure pursuits, including stamp collecting.
In Dunedin, the few remaining stamp and postcard collectors combined forces some time ago. The city’s last junior stamp club folded about 15 years ago.Don White remembers the stamp collecting heyday. He was in stamp clubs at Macandrew Intermediate and King’s High Schools in the 1950s and 1960s. It was in his blood. White’s grandfather was a Dunedin stamp dealer.
As a teenager, White was already a focused philatelist. At 15, he found, at the local post office, a block of 20, fivepence, 1960 pictorials with the yellow colour missing.
He sold them for £500, about $15,000 in today’s money.
Much of the windfall was invested in scarcer stamps; a collection that was sold to buy his first house when he was 30.
White, who founded the Dunedin Stamp Centre in 1968, says it is hard to explain the allure of stamp collecting to non-collectors.
For many, it is about the thrill of the chase, the excitement of the unusual find and the satisfaction of completing the set. For others, it is about the aesthetic qualities of the stamps.
He knew a now-deceased Dunedin collector whose obsession was one particular early British stamp, of which he amassed 75,000 examples.
Potential collections are almost limitless in their variety. White has known people who collected only stamps featuring facial hair, only stamps with breasts and only stamps that in one way or another were about elephants (which gave a stamp of Napoleonic warship HMS Elephant a spot in that collection).The stamp collecting scene is vastly different now, White concedes. But that does not mean philately is not still strong among an older group of serious collectors. His upstairs, mid-town shop is now only open to the public one day a week. That is because 90% of his business is online and global. He has many thousands of dollars worth of business, from around the world, to attend to when the Covid-19 nationwide alert level lets him get back to the office.
Young stamp collectors, however, seem to be as rare and self-conscious as the proverbial chicken’s molars.
Which would be the end of the story, except for rumours in overseas news media of a recent resurgence of interest in philately among under-40s.
This month, The Observer reported that millennials, despite some never having posted a letter, were falling in love with stamp collecting.
The United Kingdom newspaper quoted 37-year-old Suzanne Rae, of North Yorkshire, who said philately was gaining in popularity among her peers because it was seen as a creative escape from screen-based lives.
“Philately is tangible: it’s relaxing and unplugged. It’s also very Instagrammable,” said Rae, who became a full-time stamp dealer two years ago. She is also only the second chairwoman of the UK-based Philatelic Traders Society in its 91-year history.
The Observer story quotes other younger philatelists, including 29-year-old Constanze Dennis.
Dennis, a senior auctioneer at Grosvenor Philatelic Auctions in London, says stamp collecting combines elements she loves.
“I have a scientific background, so the analytical side really appeals,” she says.
“My personal philatelic interest is crash mail, envelopes salvaged from plane crashes. Definitely morbid but equally fascinating.”
Is this rebirth of all things stamps happening here, then? Are young New Zealanders singing, as Van Morrison (almost) crooned, “Have I told you philately that I love you?”
Apparently not. Or, perhaps, not apparently.
The Weekend Mix tracked down accomplished stamp collector, 22-year-old Warrick Wright, of Kaiapoi.
Wright was 10 when he began collecting. He has been exhibiting at stamp shows since 2012.
His most prestigious collection chronicles the “Revenue Gathering Stamps of New Zealand”. These are not postage stamps, but rather stamps that were stuck to documents or products to show that taxes and fees had been paid.
In 2016, Wright’s collection won the Grand Youth Award at the 10-yearly New York international stamp fair.
Wright praises stamp collecting as an ideal pursuit for those who like to keep their minds active but also want flexibility.
“[It] is one of those hobbies that you can pick up, muck around with for a few hours, and then put away again.”
Wright used to go to camps organised by the Youth Philatelic Council, but says they have stopped as numbers have decreased.
He cannot think of any other stamp collectors in the South who would fit the Millennial or Gen-Z moniker.
The same goes for Jane Dennison, who is secretary of the Dunedin Stamp and Postcard Club. It is the sole remaining stamp club in Otago. The club has about 70 members on its books, but meetings average 15 to 20 people, she says. Most members are over 65.
Young stamp collectors, however, might still be out there, perhaps even in growing numbers, White says.
He points out that clubs and organisations of all disciplines have trouble attracting new members these days. But young people are still spending “serious money” on collectables such as comics, superhero figures and game cards.
“They might be extremely active collectors, but they prefer to do it online or through live auctions.”
Buoyed by the suggestion, The Weekend Mix this week joined a private online group for buyers, sellers and collectors of New Zealand Stamps, banknotes and coins.
The authors of the two most recent posts were contacted to test the idea that younger generations are rediscovering the joy of stamp collecting.
The results were inconclusive.
Amy Altman, of Auckland, who is under 40, posted that she had been left her grandparents’ stamp collection.
“It’s all European (Italy, Bulgaria, Austria, Spain, Czechoslovakia). My poppa used to say they are worth money and very rare”.
But this is not the beginning of a new love affair with stamps, Altman says.
“I am wanting to find out where I can sell them or at least get an idea of price.
“I’m … not interested in the stamps apart from selling them.”
Donna Burkitt’s post is more hopeful.
The Northland mum posted, “We are newbies to the stamp world. Been given boxes of old and new loose stamps … that need organising. What’s the best way to organise them? … Great hobby for the teenager during lockdown.”
Yes, Burkitt confirmed, the stamps, which had been passed down from her husband’s grandfather, were being sorted and enjoyed by her 13-year-old daughter Katie.
“So far, she has shelved all the albums and has placed all the loose stamps in boxes. Next move is to find some empty stamp albums so she can sort through the loose stamps. “
And if Katie is out there, there is every chance there are other Kiwi youngsters out there who are also being infected with the stamp bug.
Community transmission may already have begun.
Stamps have virus lickedTraditionally, they go together like a horse and carriage, love and marriage. Licking and sticking stamps and envelopes has just been the way things have been done for generations.
But the two are having some fascinating interactions in a 21st Century, virus-infected world.
People with the Covid-19 virus transmit it in saliva droplets when they cough and talk, and also when they sneeze.
Last month, as the virus spread rapidly around the world, New Zealand was preparing to host NZ2020, the biggest international stamp fair to be held on these shores in 30 years. More stamps than you could possibly lick were going to be on display in Auckland for four days.
Some international exhibitors had already arrived when the first restrictions on large gatherings and international flights were announced. The organisers hastily rejigged the event as a national stamp fair, which began on March 19. But when Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern made the nationwide lockdown announcement the stamp fair had no option but to shut up shop. Normally the servant of stamps, saliva was now dictating terms.
New Zealand Post, however, says there is little to fear from stuck stamps.
All of NZ Post’s Kiwistamps and some of its special issues are self-adhesive. So, in many cases there is no need to lick them.
And if a stamp does need moisture, “our recommendations have always been to use a sponge, water roller or moisten your finger and apply it to the stamp,” an NZ Post spokeswoman says.
Mail from overseas should not be a worry either, she says.
“The advice from the World Health Organisation is that Covid-19 does not last long on such surfaces, and due to the time taken to transport from overseas, and the environmental factors mail is subject to, there is no risk.”
That’s comforting. But the cheerful news goes further. Stamps and saliva are actually a high-tech force for good.
That is because saliva contains DNA while the gum on the back of stamps, it turns out, is quite good at protecting the microscopic material in saliva.
With the advance of technology, DNA can now sometimes be extracted from a licked stamp, even decades later.
In 2018, a woman in Ireland, who had been abandoned at birth, was able to identify her birth father. Her extensive genealogical research had already narrowed the field, but it was DNA from a stamp her father had licked 30 years previous that clinched it.
Bears honoured for remaining at their postWe’re going on a Bear Hunt, says New Zealand Post, which is looking for Kiwi bears to put on new stamps.
This week, NZ Post announced a six-stamp series to mark the Covid-19 pandemic and nationwide lockdown.
Many households have put soft toy bears in their street-facing windows to greet all the new passers-by taking the air in their neighbourhoods.
“Through the simple act of putting a teddy bear in the window of their homes, New Zealanders have been able to participate in creating a magical experience for kids (and big kids) during a stressful time,” NZ Post Head of Stamps Antony Harris says.
In response, NZ Post is inviting Kiwis to submit a photo and some information about their bear, or bears. Six entrants will have their bears featured on the stamps, which are due out on May 20.
The initiative is in partnership with The NZ Bear Hunt.
From the sale of each New Zealand Bear Hunt stamp sheet, $3 will be donated to New Zealand Red Cross.

Designs finally given stamp of approvalA Dunedin stamp stalwart has honoured his father’s artistic legacy in fitting philatelic style.
Back in 1932, Jim White was a prominent young Dunedin architect when the Postmaster-general invited entries for a proposed new set of air mail stamps.
A talented artist who served as a pilot in the Royal Flying Corps in 1918, Mr White drew three designs of aircraft flying over Mt Cook, Wellington Harbour and Mt Ngauruhoe, and fired them off for consideration and the chance of a 25 prize for each design.
His efforts were not selected, and the winning designs did not reproduce at a small size well so the proposed stamp was scrapped.
Eighty-six years later, Jim has had the last laugh.
Dunedin Stamp Centre owner Don White, Jim’s youngest son, has issued a set of stamps bearing the three designs.
They are fully usable for postage as they have been issued as Custom Advertising Labels (CALs).
Mr White (70) reckoned his father would be pleased his designs, which have reproduced well in small stamp size, are finally in circulation.“I think he’d be stoked, absolutely thrilled.”
As the Dunedin Stamp Centre was fifty years old this year, the stamps doubled as a celebration of the Hanover St business reaching its half-century, he said.
“I think it’s great that in my small way I can commemorate my father, while at the same time commemorating my business.”
His father, who died in 1970, left a lasting architectural legacy across the city.
As part of Miller White & Dunn, he designed buildings including the Regent Theatre and the Art Deco bus station now used for the Toitu Otago Settlers Museum.
Mr White said while children rarely collected stamps these days, his business and philately (stamp collecting, appreciation and research) in general were in good health, thanks to a lively online trade and huge demand from China, where there were estimated to
be 25million stamp collectors.
– Sets of three selvedge blocks of four cost $30 while a set of three singles costs $15, available from Dunedin Stamp Centre.

Stamp collectors and dealers – Te Ara Encyclopedia of New Zealand
The earliest known New Zealand stamp collectors were active from the mid-1880s. The Philatelic Society of New Zealand began in Wellington in 1888. Societies also formed in Dunedin (1891), Blenheim (1894) and Auckland (1895). Stamp collecting was popular with children and adult men especially from the 1930s, while women have generally been less avid collectors.
Collectors bought and sold from each other and from dealers, and also swapped stamps. Some people collect by theme, others by country, and the serious collectors by rarity or value. First day covers are also collected – these are stamped envelopes postmarked on the first day that the stamps are issued. In the 2000s stamp collecting was less popular with children than it had been in the previous century.
A 1906 one-penny claret
One of the rarest New Zealand stamps is the 1906 New Zealand Exhibition Christchurch ‘one-penny claret’ stamp. It was originally printed with deep claret-coloured ink, which the exhibition committee deemed to be too dark. It was reprinted in a brighter vermilion red and all the claret stamps were destroyed, except one sheet, which somehow entered into circulation. In 1993 an envelope containing three of the claret stamps sold at auction for $44,000.
Stamp value is firstly determined by the rarity of the stamp, and then by the individual stamp’s quality. Because of the economic depression of the 1930s, the 1931 health stamp issue only sold 74,802 of the one penny and 111,929 of the twopenny stamps. The 1935 health stamp sold 1,275,057 – this largely explains why pre-1935 health stamps are more valuable.
Through the 1970s speculators drove up the price of rare stamps. Prices declined or held steady over the 1980s, before rising again in the 1990s and 2000s. As an investment, it is only rare stamps in fine condition that appreciate greatly in value. One of the most expensive stamps sold in New Zealand was a 1903 fourpence ‘Taupō’ stamp in which the centre was inverted. It was bought by New Zealand Post as an investment in 1998 for $125,000. There is only one known example. The highest price paid for a New Zealand stamp was $185,000 for an 1855 one-penny full-face queen, which was sold in 2006 by Sotheby’s in London.
New Zealand’s first commemorative stamps printed for the New Zealand Exhibition in Christchurch in 1906 raised the ire of the editor of London’s Gibbons Stamp Weekly. He felt it was ‘impossible to congratulate either artist, engraver, or printer on such shoddy work, nor the pettifogging Government that stoops to this sort of postal buffoonery.’1
The first New Zealand stamp dealer, Wilcox Smith and Company, began in Auckland in 1871 and was sold to Dunedin interests in 1883. It was the largest stamp firm in the country for decades. In 1965 Christchurch dealer Laurie Franks bought the firm and its 3.5 tonnes of stock. The stamp world was staggered at the price of $68,000 ($2.4 million in 2010 terms). Two of the previous Dunedin owners – William Hooper and then George Kitchin – had been hoarders. Within a year the company had paid off its borrowings and 20 years later still held some stock.
Pim & Co was established in Auckland around 1935 by Frank Walrond. In 1947 it employed 23 full-time staff and six part-timers, making it the largest stamp dealer in the southern hemisphere. Campbell Patterson was the editor of the company’s highly successful catalogues. He left Pim & Co in 1949 to set up his own firm. ‘CP’, as he was known, even did work for Stanley Gibbons, the leading international stamp company, in the 1960s and was awarded an MBE in 1979 for his contribution to philately.
In 1968 there were only 10 full-time stamp shops; import licensing introduced in the late 1950s had hit dealers hard with restrictions on importing stamps and stamp accoutrements. Within a year of de-licensing in 1968 the number of shops doubled, and in 1969 the New Zealand Stamp Dealers Association was formed.
Initially, dealers sold most stamps through postal orders. Since the advent of the internet, selling stamps online became more common. Mowbray Collectables of Ōtaki, New Zealand’s largest dealer, has been a publicly listed company since 2001.
Endangered bird star of Southland stampSouthland Stamp Club member George Stewart with an image of this year’s CAL (Custom Advertising Label) which features a kakapo.
A LARGE, flightless, nocturnal, ground-dwelling parrot now features on a postage stamp and First Day Cover.
The $1.40 stamp, known as CALs (Custom Advertising Labels), a type of advertising postage stamp, has been produced which featured the endemic kakapo.
Southland Stamp Club member George Steward said the stamp, along with First Day covers and maxi cards, would be available to view and buy at the club’s stamp fair on Saturday.
A Maxi Card (or Maximum Card) contained a stamp, a similar image but not the same as the stamp on the postcard, and a post mark connecting the three elements, he said.
“So an Invercargill date stamp connects the kakapo stamp and a colourful image of a kakapo which takes up most of the area on the card.”
The stamps and maxi cards of the kakapo were produced by stamp dealer Steven McLachlan, of Shades Stamp Shop, Christchurch, in conjunction with Mr Stewart, through New Zealand Post.
A limited number of $1.40 stamps, both regular and self-adhesive, had been printed and would be offered on a first come/first served basis, Mr Stewart said.
“First Day covers of the kakapo will be issued with the Invercargill date stamp from 11am at the fair, and the $1.40 loose stamp will be on sale from the Invercargill Post Office branch at Paper Plus from 10am, and from Shades Stamp Shop in Christchurch, where the CAL was created, after Saturday.”
The kakapo, which translated to owl parrot in te reo Maori, was chosen this year because most of the endangered birds lived on Whenua Hou/Codfish Island in Foveaux Strait and Anchor Island in Tamatea/Dusky Sound in Fiordland.
“We have a Southland theme each year. The committee chose the kakapo this year because it is strongly associated to Southland.”
But it wasn’t just the stamp which had excited the southern philatelic society members, it was the combination of the Maxi Card, which would then be date stamped especially for the fair, he said.
“People like to collect First Day covers and Maxi cards, especially those who have thematic collections. The kakapo will appeal to bird, New Zealand fauna and flora, and rare species collectors in particular.”
The important thing when collecting maxi cards was for the stamp, envelope and postage mark to be related, but not identical, he said.
“That is what collectors look for… the three elements must all agree.”
To complete the kakapo maxi card, the envelopes and stamps had to be postmarked in Invercargill.
The stamp fair not only gave club members the opportunity to buy and sell stamps and collecting-related objects, but also gave the general public the chance to have their stamps and albums valued.
“The public were also most welcome to come and have a look,” Mr Stewart said.
- Southland Stamp Club Fair, Saturday, September 26, 10am-4pm, Age Concern rooms, corner of Nith and Forth Sts, Invercargill.

|Dunedin, New Zealand|
Otago Museum original entrance. Tangata Whenua (Maori) gallery. Reconstruction of the moa. The museum hosts the world’s largest collection of moa remains.
The Otago Museum is located in downtown Dunedin, New Zealand.It is located near the University of Otago campus in Dunedin North, 1,500 meters northeast of the city center. It is one of the city’s leading attractions, with over 480,000 visitors each year, and has one of the largest collections in New Zealand.  Natural specimens of life sciences and humanities artifacts from Otago, New Zealand and the world form the basis for long term gallery displays, while exhibitions on a wide range of subjects change regularly. The museum’s interactive science center includes a large, breathtaking rainforest environment of tropical butterflies.

Otago Museum first opened to the public in 1868. The original collection consisted of material from the 1865 New Zealand Exhibition (held in Dunedin). It was originally located at The Exchange. As the collection began to grow, it soon became clear that a larger, purpose-built site was required; The foundation was laid at the current site of Great King Street in December 1874. In August 1877, a new building was opened and remains part of the museum today. The original entrance to the museum, with its Doric-style Oamaru stone pillars, is still visible on Great King Street, although the main entrance is now from the museum reserve.
Museum leadership transferred to the University of Otago in 1877. This arrangement lasted until 1955, when a new management structure was established by the passing of the Otago Act of the Museum Board of Trustees. 
Architecture and Development
With more than 100 years of history on the current site, the museum building is classified by the Historic Places Trust as a Category 1 Historic Site. 
The first significant addition to the original museum building at the Great King Street site was the Hawken Wing, which opened in 1910, housing  Dr. Thomas Morland Hawken’s collection of manuscripts.Now this collection forms the basis of the Hawken collections. Another new wing, named after philanthropist Willie Fels , was opened in 1930 and today rests the people of the world and Tangata Whenua galleries. Further expansion of the museum took place in 1963 when the Centennial wing was opened to provide additional display space. With all these individual developments, the Museum has grown several times from the original square, resulting in an intricate layout of several internally connected wings.
A multi-stage renovation project in the 1990s and 2000s largely resolved this, with the addition of architect Ted McCoy’s spectacular integrating central atrium. The collection’s storage area has also been redesigned with specialized shelving and environmentally controlled storage facilities. The renovation project reached an important milestone in 2002 when the South Land, South People Gallery was inaugurated by Sir Edmund Hillary, along with the Governor General (then Dame Silva Cartwright) and the Prime Minister (then Helen Clarke).
The museum’s interactive science center, Discovery World, opened in 1991. During the renovation, it was moved from its original first floor location to the first floor. The rainforest, a diving environment of a butterfly rainforest depicting the flora and fauna of the tropics, opened as a major addition to the science center in 2007. Discovery World The rainforest has become an important visitor attraction in its own right.
2013 will see the opening of the reconstructed historic building of copper sulfate at the Museum Reserve, which will serve as an exhibition space and an additional museum location.The building was formerly a post office.
Thanks in large part to generous donors and smart acquisition strategies, the Otago Museum has one of the most significant museum collections in New Zealand.
Many of the museum’s key benefactors were part of the same distinguished Dunedin family. Among them, German-born businessman Willie Fels has had a particularly long and impressive relationship with the museum. Fels has contributed many items personally as well as building a purchasing fund, facilitating acquisitions made by others and encouraging others to donate valuable items to the museum.He also coordinated fundraising efforts for the construction of the wing, ultimately named after him.
In natural history, the museum’s holdings of insects and specimens are of international importance, with spider collections including specimens from the wider Pacific, as well as a representative collection of arachnids from around the world. Marine invertebrate specimens number in 40,000 s, while 30,000 specimens of birds (including nests and eggs) are held.The moa collection is one of the finest in the world, with two out of three total moa eggs held in the world.
In the humanities, the collection has its strengths in both everyday and artistic products from all over Micronesia, Melanesia, Polynesia and Australia, as well as an extensive collection of Maori Taoka. From the rest of the world, wide ethnographic collections include particularly significant collections of edged weapons and armor from India, antique coins from the classical world, Islamic ceramics and Ashanti goldweights.Wide collections of ceramics, jewelry, costumes, glassware, watches, furniture, stamps, guns, cameras and stone tools are also held.

The Museum is governed by the Museum of the Otago Trust Council with roles, responsibilities and selection and appointment bodies as defined by the 1996 Otago Museum Board of Trustees Act.
About 50% of the museum’s annual operating budget comes from four local government contributions to Otago – Dunedin City Council , Clutha District Council , Central Otago District Council  and Waitaki District Council . The share of local government funding that each provides is detailed in the Otago Act of the Museum Board of Trustees. The other half of the annual operating budget comes from initiatives like the Museum Store , Museum Cafe  and Operation Rental Location , among other sources.
During the years that the University of Otago was responsible for the management of the museum, the role of the curator included the academic post.
Frederick Wollaston Hutton , formerly an Otago provincial geologist, was a lecturer in both zoology and geology at the University of Otago, and was the Otago Museum Curator from 1873–79.Hatton oversaw the design of the original building at the Great King Street site and began to amass a significant natural history collection.
His successor, Thomas Jeffrey Parker,  was an eminent researcher and one of New Zealand’s greatest biologists. During his tenure (1880-1897) he organized natural history specimens alongside Darwinian lines and articulated many of the skeletons still on display in the animal loft. A humanitarian collection was started during Parker’s time, prompted by the donation of an ancient Egyptian mummy by Bendix Hallenstein.
Spanning the 19th and 20th centuries was Sir William Blaxland Benham,  a world-renowned scholar who was appointed curator in 1898. He held the position for 39 years while at the same time holding the University of Otago Department of Biology. Benham was knighted for his contributions to science and education in 1939.
The first New Zealand natural-born leader of the museum was Henry Devenish Skinner,  who was first appointed in 1937. Skinner was a pioneer in anthropology in New Zealand, and is considered by many to have discovered Quiet anthropology.While Skinner’s predecessors focused primarily on collecting the natural sciences, Skinner skillfully built a humanitarian collection, working closely with friend and main sponsor Willie Fels.
In 1957, Raymond Robert Forster became the first new director appointed under the Otago Act to the Museum’s Board of Trustees. Forster opened during a period of intense research in the biological sciences at the Museum. Becoming the world authority on the biology and classification of spiders, Forster amassed a significant collection of arachnids, with representative species from around the world.
Richard Cassels became director after Forster in 1987 and began the process of focusing the museum on its responsibilities to society at large. During Kassels’ time as director, the museum’s Board of Trustees committed to founding a science center.
Shimraf Pavel was appointed director in 1995, after joining the team in 1990 to create the museum’s interactive science center (Discovery World). Paul oversaw a comprehensive multi-phase renovation that, along with a renewed focus on the visitor experience, transformed the museum into a hub for the local community and a world-class visitor attraction.The renovation also has a targeted storage fee that currently reflects international best practice. Led by Paul, the Museum of the Rainforest, a three-tiered experience of the indoor rainforest butterfly was also performed in 2007. During Paul’s stay, the number of visitors increased from approximately 250,000 per year to over 600,000. 90,027
Dr. Ian Griffin, the eighth director of the Museum, was assigned the role in May 2013. With a PhD in Astronomy and the Discovery of 27 Asteroids Among his accomplishments, Yang brings a strong scientific background to the museum.Ian’s last role before joining the museum was as chief executive of the Oxford Trust in Oxford, England – a charitable foundation promoting the pursuit of science. His other previous roles have included Director of the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester, England, Chief of Explanatory Affairs and Director of NASA’s Origins Education Forum Space Telescope Science Institute, and CEO of the Auckland Observatory and Planetarium Trust. Yang was also appointed an honorary member of the University’s Otago Department of Physics.
Galleries and Exhibitions
Long Term Galleries
Otago Museum has seven long-term galleries:
- Southern Land, Southern People: Geological and Natural History of Otago; natural resources as used by the people in the south; The plesiosaur fossil, considered New Zealand’s largest fossil specimen, is a feature of the exhibition  Tangata Whenua: Maori Taoka. (treasures / artifacts), with a focus on South Maori. Nature Gallery: Natural science specimens and stories from Otago, including the historic MOA diorama.Animal Loft: Victorian style with a zoological gallery, with nearly 3,000 historical specimens, including Lawrence Lions.  People of the World: humanitarian artifacts from around the world, including the ancient Egyptian mummy of Pacific cultures: masks, tools, weapons and more from the islands and cultures of Polynesia and Melanesia. Marine Gallery :. The maritime history of Otago and New Zealand with over 50 ship models and the historic Fin skeleton of a whale 
Along with the galleries, other long-term proposals are:
- Discovery World Rainforest, Museum’s interactive science center.The center has two separate sections: the first explores science (primarily physics and technology) through interactive exhibits, and the second is an immersive rainforest experience. Known as the rainforest, it houses hundreds of exotic, live butterflies, as well as other tropical flora and fauna, in a three-level environment with a six-meter waterfall. Sir Edmund Hillary: New Zealander: Several personal items that previously belonged to Sir Edmund Hillary were donated to the collection of the Otago Museum in 2010 by June, Lady Hillary.Together they tell the story of Hillary’s life and accomplishments, and are displayed on several occasions in the Atrium foyer and stairwell.
Special Exhibitions Gallery at Level 1 is its primary display area for temporary exhibitions covering a wide range of topics. Temporary exhibitions are also displayed in other parts of the museum, including at the end of the Atrium People’s World Gallery. Some exhibitions are designed in-house, while others travel from others in New Zealand or the world.Associations and partnerships with international museums have brought world-class exhibitions to Otago, and have seen the Otago Museum’s exhibitions reach a wide audience. For example, the Shanghai Museum sent the Dragons of the Emperor to the Otago Museum in 2008; with dragon motifs as its theme, an exhibition of ancient artifacts has never before been seen outside of China. As an exhibition exchange, the Otago Museum sent Te Ao Maori: Maori Treasures from the Otago Museum, New Zealand to Shanghai in 2011. This was the first exhibition of Maori artifacts in a Chinese museum.Te Ao Maori was visited by over 600,000 people.
Community Programs and Education
Thousands of schoolchildren visit the Otago Museum each year for curriculum-based programs related to galleries and exhibitions. The museum also offers a popular “sleepover” program to school groups. The Portable Planetarium (‘Starlab’) provides astronomy experiences both on site or in the schools of the region.
A wide range of community programs and activities that complement exhibitions and galleries are also organized by the Museum of Otago.Deals, which are often free, include Family Fun Days, workshops, guest speakers, film screenings, children’s activities and daily gallery talks. The museum lists upcoming programs on its website. 
Functions and Events
The Museum has a number of spaces that are regularly hired for conferences, meetings, dinners, receptions, balls and cocktails. This is one of the ways that the museum is able to raise funds to pay contributions to the operating budget.

I was going to change my passport at the beginning of winter, as there were quite a lot of trips planned, but the coronavirus pandemic changed my plans. Six months behind, and there are only three trips abroad, two of them are like to a summer residence – to Vilnius and Chernigov. There is nowhere else to put new visas, the current Schengen area expired in June and there is still time to change the document before the elections on August 9, so by the time this post is released, the passport is no longer valid and there is an opportunity to take pictures of its spreads with visas and stamps.The previous such post was published in October 2014, that is, the document served me for a little less than six years.
My passport travels with me in the cover from “Makei”, but for six years it was still worn out. Firstly, I never take it out of my backpack, as documents may be needed on work issues, and in general it is normal to have a passport with me. Secondly, he was repeatedly exposed to moisture 🌂 It is especially epic in the Ukrainian Dnieper, where the gentle, heavy, spring rain soaked everything down to his underwear.
Honestly, I expected that the rain made the passport unusable, but there were no complaints at the border control about its condition. If the lamination on the last page hasn’t peeled off, then there is no problem.
At some point, I used two passports at once, since the old Schengen was still in force. According to that still old Schengen, the first stamp on the first page of a fresh document from a trip to Kaunas (following the link you can at the same time see how mobile phones have advanced in terms of photography over the years).
Departure abroad from 7 to 11 March – by bus (!) To Stockholm. It was an infotour from the maritime operator Viking Line, which included two ship trips, the second one being quite lengthy from Turku to the capital of Sweden. From the trip, there was a post-reflection about the post-Soviet way of Estonia and the impressions of the Stockholm metro (nothing special).
On the third line, there are stamps from an invitation to Vilnius by the local operator, Hostel Fabrika. A walk around Uzupis, a text about their new hostel – to remember.
On May 8 and 9, 2015, I spent in Kiev on work matters, at the same time I wrote a text about the post-Maidan capital of Ukraine with my feelings from all this. Passed in a SV carriage from the Belarusian Railway and rode on the “Soviet” LRT – tram in Kiev Troeshchyna.
I consistently receive annual Schengens through the Lithuanian Visa Application Center, although with my visa, banking and passport history, I think I could apply for something more.It’s even interesting how the conclusion of an agreement with the EU will affect the quality of visas from this year …
The stamp of the Finnish railway crossing at Vainikkala is also interesting on this double-fold. After the info tour, Viking Line was presented with a certificate for a whole free cabin, so it turned out to take the family to Estonia, Finland and Sweden with some savings, and we returned home by train from Helsinki through St. Petersburg, where we hung up for a couple of days. We returned on the Allegro high-speed train, which, of course, gave rise to a blog post.
Turning the page.
Mainly there are business trips here, for example, to Kazakhstan. From one of them I had to fly directly to St. Petersburg for a new American visa – my wife and I were just going to New York, Boston and Las Vegas in the fall of 2015, and visas had not yet been issued in Minsk. The change was in Kiev, and I wanted to go out into the fresh air from the Boryspil airport, so I generated two corresponding identical stamps.
But this American visa was not the one issued, by the way, it is still in Minsk.A very rare type of J1 refers to trips on all kinds of intercultural relations and so on – that was a trip to America at the invitation of the embassy and the Onliner.by project together with Merlintour.
At that time I still didn’t know how to turn travel into texts, but I was starting to learn. Ugly New York and beautiful Washington, an overview of the subways of these cities, the disappointment of Chicago (here I was a fool! I would now drag myself away), lunch at a typical American diner, a trip to a bar with 700 types of beer from all over the world, a stop at the incredible Fairfax hotel. A post about American plumbing is still read by hundreds of people every month, but no one comes from search engines to the text about the guaranteed right to creativity as a post-reflection after meeting with a glass master from Florida …
New Schengen, new trips. A stamp from the Riga airport – a trip to the Carlsberg plant on a press tour at the invitation of Alivaria (part of this group of companies). It was an interesting trip with the already deceased Ales Lipai, where we finally got to know each other properly 🙂 And here’s another text about the role of a bicycle in the movement of Copenhagen’s citizens.
A short trip through Grodno to Druskininkai and back home through Bialystok to search for the remnants of the railway and test the first section of Rail Baltic from Marijampole to Bialystok. And immediately after that, flight to Budapest to the Hell Energy plant (review of the plant, test of power engineers). Thanks to the free time, I got a good chance to explore Budapest, running around the oldest continental European metro, admiring my native Ikarus and exploring a typical Soviet dormitory area.Finally, at the same time – a short outing in Kosice and Bratislava.
My first ever British visa with a stamp of entry through Aberdeen, Scotland, is a trip to a Grant’s company. From there there was only one post about a strange castle hotel. Izmir airport stamps – a seaside vacation with a family two years ago (posts about a buffet in a hotel, a buzzy Turkey in general, about their dolmush minibuses, Izmir trams and metro, non-tourist cities and crazy quarters of summer cottages).
And the stamps of entry and exit through Novye Yarilovichi are the last dock trip. I drove this to Chernigov and Sumy, thus “closing” two more regional centers of Ukraine. I would have closed everything this year, if not for the covid … Posts from the trip: about Slavutich, about the center and outskirts of Chernigov, about Nizhyn, Priluki, Lebedin, about Sumy’s sleeping bag and about prices in Ukrainian hypermarkets, about the northernmost Ukrainian city and a strange railway the road from it to Shostka.
The most boring spread is the following:
And then also not particularly remarkable.There are stamps from a trip to central and northern Italy in December 2019. Two months later, there was a covid, which mowed thousands of people down, and in December there was still no sign of trouble.
My family and I first went to Warsaw, where we lived on the fashionable Minskaya Street, for the first time in my life I walked around the old part of the capital of Poland. Saw Rome for the first time, rode Freycharossa for the first time, looked at Milan’s incredible cemetery and explored Bergamo.
And on this page there are also stamps from a trip to Gdansk at the invitation of the “Polish Travel Agency”.Here are the impressions from the city itself, from the Sopot resort, from the Malbork castle … Also from the haute Polish cuisine, the Lech Walesa sleeping area and the Solidarity Museum.
Turning the page:
Ultra Mega Trip to New Zealand! There was so much in it that there was a separate technical post with links to all entries – read on and enjoy. The same one is dedicated at once to 30 (!) Texts from a mega-trip across central and southern Ukraine in the spring of 2019 and a two-week trip through the whole of Norway.
Another US visa on the next page:
It was a trip through New York to Boston, Vegas and back with a stop at Niagara Falls – while my last trip was in the USA. Planned some more this year, but covid bitch.
Everything, last page. Here is an interesting stamp about a three-day permit to stay in China without a visa:
The stop in Beijing was necessary for the logistics of the trip to New Zealand. At that time, there was no agreement on visa-free travel between our countries, but Belarusians were already allowed 72 hours to stay in the country when arriving through some international airports, in particular, Beijing Capital.This is what we used with friends.

Fresh FAQ – Here at…
Here in Auckland, depending on the terrorist attacks in the Moscow metro / airport, peat fires, “elections”, frost, heat – many different stressors – I get emails with questions about immigration and in general.I try to answer everyone, but it doesn’t always work out.
Already somehow I laid out a kind of FAQ with letters from readers (without names, of course). I think the time has come for a new post in this series.
So, I’ll give you some common questions and answers today. Maybe I’ll save someone another minute.
I am very interested in the different characteristics of New Zealand in relation to the rest of the world in terms of the web services used. For example, I know that instead of ebay, kiwis are mainly used by trademe.Can you share other similar examples? What systems im the most popular? What social networks, facebook, g +, or maybe something of their own, too?
Perhaps this is a whole topic for a post on your blog, in any case it is very interesting to know such details. I would also like to know more about instant messaging. Obviously, NZ does not use ICQ. Just chatting on facebook or using something else?
In fact, only trademi is off the list.
- Facebook = Facebook
- Twitter = Twitter
- Google = Google
- eBay = Trademe
- Priceline.com = Pricespy. co.nz
Messengers: FB, Skype, Google Talk
If there is an opportunity to advise future independent travelers to New Zealand when it is better to go (what time of year), where exactly (city, village – what), where to stay (apartment, hotel), what to see, then we will be grateful. Thanks in advance.
Better to go in December-March. Better to go to the South Island. Start from Christchurch and circle around the island: Christchurch – Oamaru – Dunedin – Queenstown – Te Anau – Milford Sound – Wonaka – Westport – Nelson – Kaikura – Arthur Pass – Christchurch.
What would it be nice for a New Zealander to hear from a foreigner about them as people and about their country ?????
Well, it will probably be nice to hear that they have a beautiful country. But this is a cliche in the spirit of the fact that it is cold in Siberia.
I work as a Chef in Russia. Prizewinner of various international gastronomic festivals.
I have a great desire to work in New Zealand. I sent my resume to all sites with the hope that I would be interested and I would be invited to work, and all without success.
I think it will be difficult without local certificates. Unfortunately, I don’t know which courses to finish. Not familiar with specifics. English, of course, you need to learn, it is necessary. The resume can be corrected at cvworks.ru
Stas, what can you say about the Mongrel Mob gang, does the scope of their activities correspond to how it is reported in the media?
I hear it for the first time, to be honest. There is nothing special, as it seems to me, to deal with these gangs. Well, weed, well, weapons.An island country, it is easy to control the import / export. The population is small, scattered throughout the country. In the news about them, there are mainly some broken noses and rape, farmers are robbed.
My brother is finishing 11th grade, the agency offers to leave for him to study for 2 years and after 2 years of study he will have the right to work there for 2 years, training is expensive and I would like to clarify if you are in the know, after this training really Will he be automatically given a one-year work visa and is obliged to find a job within a year, or should he get a bachelor’s degree for a work visa?
Look how it turns out. You turn to someone (the agency) as experts and pay them money for advice and for some knowledge that is probably inaccessible. However, at the same time, you do not trust them and go to another expert (for example, me) and ask for free, in a simple way, to explain how it actually works. I see a contradiction in this. In 99% of cases, agents are not needed, because all the “reliable” information is available at immigration.govt.nz – it says about a one-year visa and 2 years of preliminary training. Again, the website of the University must be specified accordingly.the level of education that is obtained after completing a specific course. The levels are described on the same website of the Immigration Office or in Wikipedia. Quite a lot has been written in my blog.
I am an X-ray technician and wanted to learn about the profession in New Zealand. If you know someone who can help me I will be grateful.
As far as I know, you need to dig this site: mcnz.org.nz So I clicked something similar to your case, it seems to me. There are also contacts where to write and ask questions.Vacancies can be viewed at trademe.co.nz and seek.co.nz.
At seek.com.nz there are “sponsored vacancies” – as I understand it, these are mainly civil engineers in Christchurch. Do I understand correctly that this is, in fact, the only group of vacancies for non-citizens? Two recruiting agencies answered me – when I responded to their telecom vacancies – about the same thing: “As New Zealand employers, we can only employ people who are New Zealand citizens or who have a valid work or residence visa or permit issued by the New Zealand Immigration Service.Please refer to the New Zealand Immigration website for further information. At this point we are unable to take your application further. ”. How, in such a case, you can theoretically get a job offer?
On the second question: not all employers want to bother with obtaining work visas. Job Offer can be obtained without a visa, it becomes a reason for getting it. However, this means that the employer will have to work harder: fill out a short Supplementary Employer’s Form, show who works for him, maybe show taxes.In general – here, as you convince them. Of course, it’s easier to do this in person. Therefore, I recommend making an appointment for interviews from the outside, and flying in to meet with employers. Or come as a tourist and go to interviews. How to sell yourself, in short. In theory, finding a job remotely is possible, but difficult.
Money is actually a very important thing. Without money, we are nowhere and no one needs. What do you mean by the phrase that “money does not solve at all”?
Money cannot buy in Russia what is free here, is included in the lifestyle kit.
Can you save your blog in pdf with pictures? I would like to fill in the book and read the whole thing.
I got confused and saved (263MB, PDF).
About Auckland. Is there a difference in prices for food, things, restaurants, etc. depending on the distance from the city center, as is customary in the CIS? Or does milk cost the same both in the center and in the outskirts?
Events on LastEfEm talk about good concerts in Auckland. You can’t even expect similar ones in Kiev.What are the average prices for events like Coldplay, Radiohead, RHCP?
In the very center, it will probably be more expensive. Rather, it depends on the brand: Pack’n’Save is cheaper than New World. Concert tickets: 80-120. I went to big ones like Gaga and Smashing Pumpkins, Pearl Jam, Linkin Park and others for 150 somewhere.
Hello Stas! And what is the attitude in New Zealand to mothers with 4 children, but without a dad?
Is it possible to take English courses in NZ?For 6-10 months and at the expense of them get a student visa, then if everything is hard with work, constantly extend the courses in parallel with the visa?
It is possible, but the chance of renewal will be less and less each time.
… me and my boyfriend want to move to live in Australia …
Australia is not New Zealand, there are different rules.
Please tell me how things are in NZ with any illegal content. I mean music and movies. For example, is listening to unlicensed streaming music from Vkontakte punishable.ru or downloading this music from there. Well, our favorite torrents =)
It’s okay if you download from a rutracker. The system works like this: the copyright holder sticks to a popular torrent and writes down the IP, then writes to the provider, he makes a warning. Particularly dull ones are fined. Copyright holders are only engaged in new and on all sorts of popular terkers like thepiratebay. If I understand the system correctly, of course.
Prompt. If I purchase real estate (and which one) in NZ, do I get the right to NZ citizenship?
No.So half of China would have moved. If the investment is 6 million, then it seems there are options. See Investor visa.
Is it possible to open something like an individual entrepreneur – a small business and earn money on it? Is it necessary there at all? Can I get a visa, taking into account what I plan to do there? I would be very grateful for your answers.
It is possible, but after obtaining a residence permit, which means first you will have to work “for your uncle” or wait a while.
Tell me about the wind conditions and the waves at spots around Oakland.I mean when is the season of windsurfing or kitesurfing, what is the wind, what is the wave, what is the temperature of the water, etc. Have you tried surfing or finsurfing there? How long is the ski season?
I don’t do any of the above myself, I think you can find out everything at surf.co.nz and snow.co.nz.
I have a little question: Is it possible to emigrate to New Zealand without an education, except for school age 9? Maybe there are some ways. I myself am a freelancer, while one specialty is web programming. Now I’m in college (a software technician with a bias in economics), but I really want to drop out and not waste more time.
I have no higher. When applying for a job, no one asks this: experience and quality of work are important.
I am an active master of sports in cross-country skiing, I am not coming to NZ for the first time, I like the country! I would like to ask if it is possible in NZ to find a job in my sports profile?
Looks like yes, look at the talent visa website. You can join local athletes, as I imagine.Look for similar things.
Tell me please, how is New Zealand in the music field? I mean are there any heavy music bands, music bars, clubs, producers (I mean only rock, metal, alternative)?
There are Shihad, Head Like a Hole, The Datsuns and all sorts of things. There are clubs, bars, producers. On the whole, in my opinion, the music scene is quite developed here for a small country.
Tell us what warning measures exist in the NZ for floods, earthquakes, etc. n phenomena.
Radio, siren, television – like everywhere else. Nothing like this has ever happened.
Hello Stas! I have read your comments about New Zealand. Is that so ?! I would like to know more about this country!
Then read my comments further!
Something like this has happened over the last year. The previous collection of questions and answers can be read here.
Dmitry and Tatiana
Tour name: Group tour in Peru + Venezuela
My wife and I went to Peru and Venezuela from November 06 to 30, 2014. The tour was purchased from Latina Travel.
The tour is worth it, but the price is absolutely justified. We traveled from Latina for the first time, and also went to South America for the first time, there were various concerns. They decided to buy the tour in Latina Travel, because they liked the tour, and Anastasia also made a very pleasant impression. Our fears were completely in vain, and the trip exceeded our expectations! We were absolutely delighted with the trip!
We spent 8 days in Peru, the rest of the vacation in Venezuela.
In Peru, we flew to Lima, we were met by a representative of the travel agency and helped to check into the Colonial hotel. The hotel is nice, rooms are furnished with antique furniture. The next day there was a flight to Cuzco. We were in Cusco for two days, went on a sightseeing tour and to the Sacred Valley of the Incas. The excursions were led by the guide Olga, who knew a lot about the history of various buildings, as well as about the life of local residents. It was very interesting.
We walked around Cusco ourselves. On the advice of Olga, in one restaurant they ordered a cui-dish of guinea pig.In general, nothing special, meat is like meat.
Olga and I went to Machu Picchu. Machu Picchu made a strong impression, Olga travels there with tourists quite often, and it was evident that she really loves her job, and she herself likes these places. On the way back there was a shower, and the railway was covered with stones. Olga was in full control of the situation, negotiated with the train staff, and we were aware of how the workers there cleared the rubble)).
Then we went to Puno. Our guide Omar went with us.This is a Quechua Indian, but he studied in Moscow and speaks Russian quite well. The transfer was not difficult, the bus is very convenient, and there were several stops along the way, we went to small museums, examined the archaeological complex. We liked Omar very much. He belonged to the Quechua people, and the Spaniards began to call the Quechua and Aymara peoples Incas (Omar explained this to us). And therefore, about the various archaeological complexes that we saw on the way to Puno, as well as the next day in the vicinity of Puno, he said “my ancestors built something here.”It was great to hear the history of these places and the people who have long inhabited these lands from a local resident, a descendant of the Incas.
The next day in Puno we examined the towers in which the Incas buried the dead. There are sacred places of the Indians, it is worth treating these places with respect. Near these towers, Omar showed us a mountain lake. We really liked this place – the perfectly flat surface of the water, and the piercing silence. We would have sat there all day, probably, but Omar began to rush us.
There were sheep grazing there – we rather unceremoniously took pictures with them, putting them on sunglasses and hats.The poor sheep did not know what to do for fear! But the alpaca began to spit at me, spat 4 times, but never hit!
Then we returned to Puno, to the berths on Lake Titicaca, and sailed to the floating islands of Uros. On the way, we saw the Indians catch fish together.
Women met us on the island and told us how they build islands. We went into one of the houses, then bought some souvenirs, and for a small fee took a ride on a reed boat. We wanted to swim in the lake, Omar said that you can swim from a boat, and we did so. But in vain! The water is 12 degrees, due to altitude sickness, the strength is not enough, the boat had to catch up, it was difficult to climb into it, because the sides of the boat are high! But swimming in Lake Titicaca took place!
After that, the guide took us to Yuliaca, from where we flew to Lima, and the next day from there to Caracas.
We liked Peru very much. What were the difficulties? Mountain sickness. Perhaps this should be taken into account when traveling to Peru. You can save yourself with coca tea and oxygen in hotels.
Our guide Anton met us in Venezuela. He helped us change money (there is a black rate, and it is not so easy to change money!), The rate was good, 70: 1, he helped us buy a local SIM card (this is also not easy, for this you need a passport, ind.smartphone number, signatures on some papers, and, of course, fingerprints, the whole procedure for buying a SIM card takes about an hour), took our suitcase (we agreed to store a suitcase with winter clothes and souvenirs at the travel agency’s office), and, God only knows how, he rode off with him on a motorcycle.
We had a lot of air travel to Venezuela. I must say right away that air travel simply killed us. Delays for an hour or two are the norm, for which no one even apologizes. The people there are quite lazy, they do everything incredibly slowly.You wait forty minutes for your luggage.
On the other hand, due to various reasons (including, probably, murderous air flights and the general constant mess in the country) there are few tourists in Venezuela, and thanks to this, the nature is very well preserved. And we drove just for this.
In Venezuela, we were in Canaima, Orinoco Delta, Los Llanos and Margarita. I want to say right away that I liked it everywhere, everything was very cool, and what we saw exceeded our expectations.
Canaima are waterfalls. I must say that it was when I saw the photographs of these waterfalls that I realized that I wanted to go to Venezuela.It is impossible to convey how beautiful it is! On the first day we swam in the river, and after lunch we drove to the El Sapo waterfall. We were very impressed by all the waterfalls, and of course, the El Sapo waterfall! It is an amazing feeling when you walk under a waterfall! And then swimming in the waterfall! There were very beautiful photos!
On the way back after the El Sapo waterfall, the guide showed us edible termites, and I began to eat them. Not very tasty, sour, and smells like cologne.
Tapui Lodge (where we lived) turned out to be very beautiful.The food was delicious, the houses were beautiful and comfortable, in Indian style. For the night I settled down in a hammock.
The next day we drove to Angel Falls. There were doubts whether the trip was worth it, because it seemed that the trip would be exhausting. Let’s go and do not regret it. In the morning we saw an amazingly beautiful pink sunrise. We sailed by boat for about 4 hours one way with stops. On the way there were very beautiful views of the mesas. We saw steam rise from the jungle, which then forms around the mesas and then rises into the sky and becomes clouds. We walked through the jungle for about an hour. It was a little hard, because there were many slippery tree roots on the path, and in the end it was necessary to climb the mountain. And finally – Angel! The waterfall is really, very beautiful. We lay on the rocks and admired the views. The top of the mountain, from which Angel falls, was all in fog, and we understood why Anastasia discouraged us from flying over Angel in such a way – you can not see anything if it is cloudy, and looking through the plane window is not so interesting.
We went down to the foot of the waterfall and began to swim. The guide showed us the way he invented how to climb the rocks above, and then slide down, like in a water park.
It took less time to get back. On the way back, we swam in the waterfall of happiness (as the guide called it), and stopped at an Indian settlement.
The next day there was a flight to Puerto Ordaz, then 3 hours by car, an hour by boat – and here we are in Boca del Tigre! We were driven by a driver who did not speak a word of English – only Spanish.So we turn off the highway, drive along a country road, cross a bridge inclined at thirty degrees, get out of the car and go to the boat – and that’s it, goodbye, civilization! In the boat, an Indian Varao is waiting for us, who no longer speaks Spanish at all, and we, alas, do not speak the Varao language. The driver says goodbye to us, and now we are sailing on a motorboat along the great Orinoco River! Floating islands float with us, there are many birds around, on the banks on stilts there are houses of the Varao Indians without walls – accordingly, the life of their inhabitants is looking through very well.But we did not see white people at all – everywhere there were only Indians, in motorboats, in canoes and in their houses on the water. When we arrived at our lodge, we did not see any tourists there either. When the Indians found out that we do not speak Spanish at all, they were very upset (another problem on their heads – English-speaking tourists !, and someone went on a canoe to look for someone who speaks English.
Electricity is given there for hours 2 a day, but birds and toads are singing around, some insects are chirping deafeningly, and red howlers are screaming.And at night – a huge starry sky, which you will not see in the city!
The next day, getting up early in the morning and looking from the pier at the floating islands, which were already sailing in the opposite direction, we sailed to watch the river dolphins. We did not see dolphins, but we saw many beautiful birds, incl. green parrots.
After breakfast we went into the jungle. The guide gave us high rubber boots, we put on light mosquito jackets – and off into the jungle!
Here we had to forget what we saw in Thailand, Singapore, Sri Lanka and Indonesia on the Komodo Islands – the jungle was simply impassable, no paths, an ax and a machete that our guides deftly wielded – and forward through the mud, vines and thorny shrubs.The guides found a clearing, in the middle of which a long liana dangled. They cleared the area, untangled the vine – and now, you can feel like a tarzan! Then they found a rotten trunk, began to pick it open, and found there fat larvae, as long as a middle finger and two or three fingers thick. They showed us 4 larvae, and explained that since there are four of us, then just for everyone, you need to eat. They showed us an example, now it was up to us. Well, I got over my disgust, tore off my maggot’s head and stuffed it into my mouth.It turned out to be very tasty – it resembles something lukewarm sweet pudding, which moves very actively in the mouth. Then they tore open some tree, from where a red liquid began to ooze. We got war paint like the Indians in the 15th century.
After lunch (I mean the usual lunch, not maggots), we began to swim along the river, swam to the Indians, caught piranhas. And in the evening we saw how green parrots began to flock to one island from all sides. A flock of pink ibises flew away from this island, and parrots from all directions flew and flew, screaming deafeningly.They were preparing for the flight. It was amazing!
Then we flew to Barinas and from there went to Los Llanos in Hato el Cedral. When we were planning the trip, we thought to give up for the sake of Los Llanos by the Orinoco delta – it’s good that we didn’t! And Anastasia explained that due to air travel it is impossible to come to Los Llanos for two days – only for one or three days. And Anastasia persuaded us to go for three days, for which they had to sacrifice a day of rest at the sea. It’s good that we followed Anastasia’s advice! The sea is the sea, but Los Llanos is a really amazing place, for which two days are not enough.Savannahs and swamps, where about 270 species of birds live, a huge number of capybaras, caimans and Orinox crocodiles, armadillos, anteaters, possums, iguanas, turtles, deer, red howler monks, anacondas that are not afraid of humans! In the evenings, a huge number of capybaras, iguanas, deer came to the Hato el Cedral estate where we lived, and a lot of birds flew in! The guide explained to us that they are afraid of cougars, crocodiles and caimans, so they go to people! So when we returned home in the evenings, we almost had to push the capybaras apart, we fell asleep and woke up to the deafening concerts that the birds gave us!
We rode a boat in the swamps, went by car, and everywhere we saw a lot of animals and birds.There were especially many capybaras, caimans and crocodiles. After leaving the gate, you have already bumped into a caiman, which lies across the road in the water. We learned how to “summon” caimans and crocodiles, and in the end we got so bold that we came close to the water, made the necessary sounds and caimans began to crawl out of the water towards us! After that we really ran away.
From the very first day, I told the guide that I wanted to see the anteater. He promised me to find him. All three days we searched for him, but to no avail. I had already decided that I would not see the anteater, but on the third day after lunch we drove very far, and the guide noticed a giant anteater swarming in the bushes! He quickly disappeared into the bushes.I began to beg the guide to somehow get close to him. And we went. The guide threw up the ground to see where the wind was blowing. The wind was blowing in our direction, so the anteater could not smell our scent. And we tiptoed through the savannah in search of a giant anteater! And we found it! He is blind, focuses more on the sense of smell and hearing, so we were able to approach him two meters! So the dream has come true!
And it remains to say a few words about Margarita. The hotel where we lived (Hesperia Isla Margarita) seemed to us just a palace after all the places where we lived before.Separately, it should be noted that at dinner there was always a variety of live music, once – even Latin American dances. The beach was clean, there were no strong waves, there were few people.
And fly in the ointment. We had to fly from Margarita at 16 o’clock (a / to Conviasa) (, the flight was delayed by 3 hours, another forty minutes were waiting for baggage. The flight from Caracas to Madrid (a / to Air Europe) was at 21:50. As a result, we we ran to check-in at 20:20 and we were denied check-in for the flight! All our persuasions, arguments that we would fly without luggage – nothing helped.The next plane is only in 4 days. And we are left without money in Venezuela! And almost no one speaks English. The guide of a travel agency in Venezuela, Svetlana was our translator: we gave the telephone receiver to the aborigine – and Svetlana translated. As a result, we found the ITAC service (on the advice of Svetlana), they went with us to Conviasa, and Conviasa placed us at the hotel at their own expense. The hotel was good, it had wifi, and even a pool, three meals a day. Before going to bed, we wrote a letter to Anastasia, in which we described our problem.When we woke up, Anastasia received a detailed letter with instructions. I had to go to the offices of Conviasa and Air Europe and solve this problem. We decided to go to the airport, as travel there from the hotel was free, and in one place there were the offices of these companies. For some reason, my temperature rose to 38.5, as if on purpose, but I went in this state. As a result, with the assistance of ITAC, whose employees took us by the hand, Svetlana and Anton (from the receiving travel agency of Venezuela), who translated everything by phone, and Conviasa, who paid us for hotel accommodation, fines and surcharges for increasing the fare of Air Europe, we were able to return home in 4 days!
What conclusions have we drawn from this situation for ourselves? Firstly, Latina Travel is a company that you can completely trust, especially, of course, we are grateful to Anastasia, I would like to note her professionalism and participation, we will definitely turn to the services of this company and will advise all our friends; secondly, Air Europe is an airline that did absolutely nothing for us (Anastasia really assured us that the Air Europe office in Moscow did a lot), I can’t find any explanation why they couldn’t have us in 1.5 to board a flight hours before departure, or at least humanly treat us.The employees of this a / c did not even stoop to even talk to us, for this we had to bring an ITAC employee with us. When we flew out 4 days later, we arrived at check-in 7 hours in advance, and there was already a huge queue! On the boarding pass they wrote to us the boarding time at 18:30 – this is, sorry, a lie, the boarding began at 21:20, and it began only when the mischievous madam in glasses, who, for some inexplicable personal reasons, could not put us on the plane 4 days ago, I moved from the check-in counter to the gate and personally began to put everyone on the plane.So our conclusion is that the services of this airline should never be used by anyone, and as many people as possible should be warned about this.
But in general, we really liked the trip, we are very grateful to all the employees of Latin Travel: Eugene, Vladimir, and of course, Anastasia. Thank you guys! You are real professionals in your field and just wonderful people! Anastasia – You were always in touch, patiently answered all our questions, helped us plan the tour, gave a lot of practical advice, helped with the purchase of air tickets (although we bought them ourselves), and helped us return home! Thank you for this wonderfully organized vacation!
