Disoriented in New Zealand - perhaps another reason - magnetism

We just found out that our compass from the UK doesn't work here. It seems that due to magnetic variations, the earth is divided up into 5 magnetic zones and most compasses are only designed to work in particular zones.

Perhaps these magnetic variations also cause people to feel a bit disoriented. After all, lots of animals are thought to migrate using the earth's magnetic field for guidance.


  • So is that what you call this stint in New Zealand? Migration.

  • Yip! That must be it - I think we were driven here by the Earth's magnetic forces!
