Me and my wife are coming to NZ from UK in Feb 2015, our holiday plan is as follows
Cook islands 7 nights , 10 days in NZ then 4 days in Melbourne ( to visit wife's brother )
the questions i have is it possible to do Auckland to Christchurch driving in 10 days having around 5 places to spend a couple of night and which route would people advise
east coast ?
west coast ?
or down the middle ?
We are both 40+ and like to see a bit of scenery and some history as well. The wife said she has to do Hobbiton or she won't forgive me.
All answers much appreciated in advance
