Taking a short trip to NZ late Sept-Hawaiian air had an airfare we couldn't pass up
My husband and I had been there in '90 for a month and he has been back twice to do the Milford and Routebourn tracks and had been wanting to go back but were held back by the high airfares
Since it was spur of the moment we don't have as much time as we'd like
Total of 9 nights.
Get in late and plan to do an airport motel the first night.Fly down to Christchurch and tentatively drive down to Akaroa and stay the night
After that it is open for the next 6 nights
Really hate to plan too much,which is pretty unusual for me
is it going to be a problem to just go where the road takes us and find accommodation each night or two?
hope to make it to Queenstown and back.Is that doable?
Primarily are there for the scenery and short hikes along the way
Thanks for any help
