We'll be traveling in early August, and our favorite things are beautiful coastal scenery, little towns, coffee and bakeries, talking to people, stopping along the way when we see something interesting. We'll have a rental car, arriving and leaving in Auckland. We've been to Yellowstone, and aren't very interested in Rotorua, or in seeing glow worms (childhood fear). We can do long days in the car, but would like to stay the same place for a couple of nights once or twice. What itinerary would you suggest?
