I have a business trip coming up in NZ in May and I wanted to take the opportunity to take some days off here and there, to see things as this is possibly my only opportunity.
I will be travelling by myself (I am in my thirties). My itinerary: 3 days in Wellington, 2 days in Napier, few days in Auckland and then I wanted to spend about 6 days in the South Island (possibly longer, if I can extend my ticket). I just wanted to ask what are the must-see things and what is realistic, given the relatively short timeframe.
I am particularly interested in photography/scenery (and less in cities, on this trip anyway).
Any tips or links would be very appreciated. And is there anything I'd need to pre-book? (aside from car).
Would I be able to rent a car with a UK driving licence?
Many thanks, myfriday
