New Zealand

New Zealand comes with a reputation as a unique land packed with magnificent, raw scenery: craggy coastlines, sweeping beaches, primeval forests, snow-capped glacier-fed lakes and unparalleled wildlife, all beneath a brilliant blue sky.

We decided to rent a car in both the North and the South Islands, We met up and stayed over night with Mary and Kevin in Auckland, who cooked us a great meal and gave us a comfortable bed for the night. We met Mary with her sister Linsey in Bali. A big thanks to you all.

We loved the primeval forests,  the Overlander  scenic train from Auckland to Wellington. We then took the ferry to the south island where we were blown away by the glaciers, Mount Cook, and the road trip to Queenstown. On the return route Nigel hooked up with a local band and played a gig in the Criterion Hotel in Oamaru. We ended the trip in the earthquake ruined Christchurch. All in all we have done New Zealand.
