So I've just put some flights on hold in early March for my wife and I to take our 6 month old baby all the way from the UK to the South Island landing in Christchurch. We'll be stopping in Singapore for a few days to break the journey up, but would really appreciate any guidance on itinerary.
We were originally thinking about a campervan but have decided against for a number of reasons I won't bore you with, so we'll get a station wagon and aim to book motels in advance (is that a good idea - we assumed so?)
We are a very active family - we love walking (our dog gets hours every day!) and loved hiking in Nepal and just went for a week walking in North Cornwall with the baby. So, any active things to do would be great.
Our simple itinerary we were going to follow is here: newzealand.com/travel/getting-to-around-nz/d…
We love scenery, but also meeting people and food and anything practical with the baby (boy does she need to be kept entertained!). We are a little worried we may have opted for an itinerary that might be too optimistic, too boring, not right given the time of year etc. - hence I thought we'd ask here!
I would really appreciate any observations on the itinerary and whether you'd make any changes based on the little info I've given above. We tend to get bored quickly so the more we can cram in the better!
Thanks in advance, I really appreciate the support on these forums
