The Longest Migration In Human History - Then and Now

Two hundred years ago it took 6 months to sail from England to Aotearoa. One hundred years ago it took about 35 days. How quickly could you get to London today? By air? And by sea? Use the internet to research and design your own travel itinerary. Where would you stop? And what would you pack today compared to 100 years ago? What things would you take to fight boredom on the plane today, or if you were sailing on a passenger ship 200 years ago, or on a waka 1000 years ago?


Imagine if you were blindfolded, flown to a foreign country and dropped off in the middle of a city. How would you know where you are? What could you do to find out?
