i love TA people/experts who are so helpful! Any suggestions of how to begin planning our first trip to NZ (to see both N & S.Is.) for mid/late March 2010, Duration: +/-1 month
We're fairly flexible, in fact we're not certain on dates yet, so Question 1) is: Is it hard to book avg. priced accom. during this time, when do they book up? This is the longest trip we've planned/will do.
-married couple in late 20's, flying out Toronto, Canada
-enjoy traveling just us 2, we've bkpacked Europe, 3wk Luxury honeymn Greece/Egypt, and last year S.Africa with self-drive for 1wk and tour for safari the other Q2) Would a month of driving be too tiring? Should we opt to join tour/bus for S.Island? However we do like freedom, flexibility, privacy....
-Likes: scenic, photography, exploration/adventure, Food, people/culture
-Price conscious, avrg accom., but willing to spend as needed, and splurge on special "must do/unique exper/ accomodation views." as we prob. won't be back.
So how should we start? We were thinking fly into N.Island and then ferry over, and fly out of S. Island.
Any advice appreciated!!! Thank you everyone!
