I am going to be traveling from the US to Christchurch in mid-December. My husband will be just coming back from a work trip to the South Pole Station and I will be meeting him in Christchurch and we will be spending about a week there.
I have been trying to do some research, but there is just so much information out there that it is a little overwhelming. I am so excited for this trip (New Zealand is at the top of my list of places I want to traavel to) and I was wondering if anyone out there has some suggestions for things to do.
We are in our 30's, very interested in history/cultural activities/museums. We also enjoy wine tasting and trying new restaurants. We are both big Lord of The Rings fans and might enjoy some sort movie sights tour. As far as budget, we are not afraid to spend money to have a nice time, but we are not rolling in money (so I guess mid-level pricing).
I plan on spending a lot of time doing my own research in the coming weeks, but if anyone who reads this has a few minutes to make a suggestion or two, it would be most appreciated. Thanks!
