Our daughter has been working the wine harvest on both North & South Islands and will be finnished on May 14 at the winery in Blenheim. We then plan on meeting her in CHC and staying with cousins for a few days before heading out to see more.
Due to time of year I have decided not to go south to the glaciers, Milford and Queenstown and save that for another time. I'll put down our approximate plans and would appreciate any comments.
May 17 leave for and arrive Nelson (overland) to stay for a few days with more cousins. May 17 through 22 in Nelson'Marlborough/Blenheim.
May 22 - to Wellington for a few days
May 24 - Wellington to Gisborne (where she worked for a few months). Stay Gisborne for one or two nights.
May 27 on to Coromandel for two nights.
May 29 to Auckland for final night.
