Romantic Scots of the South - Dunedin Peninsula, Otago, NZ...
By Peter Petterson
I have never associated romanticism and the Dunedin Peninsula in the one package, but there are people around who most certainly do.
In fact Dunedin Peninsula has reportedly been proclaimed one of the most romantic places in the world in which to propose marriage. Indeed!
The US news organisation,CNN International has issued its Top Ten places in which to propose to a loved one on Valentines Day.
It highlighted the wildlife reserves near Dunedin, in New Zealand's South Island - home to colonies of yellow-eyed penguins, blue penguins, fur seals and the Royal Albatross.
So much for the Dunedin Peninsula. The other selections are:
Petra, Jordan; Dubroviniks Hotel Excelsior; Shiraz,India; Maldives; Leti Hotel, India; The Great Wall of China; and England's North Lees Hall.
"If your beseeching eyes can't soften her heart, the mating rituals of the South Island's coastal wildlife may do it for you." said CNN International.
