The Bauble-meister Winston Peters is set to break the million dollar barrier in his quest to get as much travel in as he can before being tossed from the parliament on his arse.

The figures cover costs for Mr Peters and anyone travelling in his official party and include airfares, accommodation, internal transport, receptions and other costs.

He has travelled to Antarctica, South Africa, Zambia and South Korea this year, though why the Foreign Minister went to Antarctica is very hard to fathom.
