I don't usually have this much trouble planning a trip, but I keep second guessing and wondering. I have a feeling I'm trying to do to much, but I'm afraid that this will be my only trip to NZ and I'm on a rather tight budget. Our travel window is 27 of May to 12 of June, so....
Is it reasonable to fly to Queenstown and then drive back to Auckland in a week? 10 days?
Or should I bite the bullet and hopscotch by plane back to Auckland to hit some key stops?
What will we miss by flying that perhaps another mode of transport would provide.
