Following an unexpected cash injection the wife and I are currently in the very early stages of planning a 4 week trip to NZ in February 2011.
We fell in love with NZ when we visited in 2008 and none of the holidays we have had since can even compare - we simply can not wait to return. The hairs on my body stand on end just thinking about coming back.
This is my review from our last 3 week trip -
In short we visited the following places (I have detailed it so you can see the rough route we took) - Auckland, Waitomo, Rotorua, Taupo, Wellington, Picton, Kaikoura, Arthurs Pass, Franz Josef, Queenstown, Milford Sound, Christchurch.
Now this visit will be just as actioned packed as the last with us hoping to do a Sky Dive, Caving and White Water Rafting - amongst other things -
So what help do I need?
- Can anyone recommend a white water rafting company for a couple who have never done it before, but love all things action packed?
- Clearly we missed areas on our first visit - what are must see areas on this return? Were alrready thinking Bay Of Islands, Coromandel, Punakaiki etc etc - I should add, we intend to do both islands again.
Were still trying to decide if we should redo the campervan or hire a care and stay in B&Bs etc, both have their advantages/disadvantages - Will see how the budget works out after all our activities :-)
Look forward to hearing from you soon -
