Holiday 2007 – New Zealand

We’ve spent the last week trying to work out our holiday plans for the year and it’s not easy. The plan is to Fly to Auckland, hire a camper van and then drive around the two islands (complete with ferry crossing) for 3 weeks before flying back home from Christchurch.

We’ve had to check flights, vans costs, accommodation, dates and all sorts. We were all set to book 3 weeks in October only to be told it might be a bit cold and wet but we didn’t want to go peak time (December-February) so March was supposed to be good. Thing is this March is a bit close, and next March is too far away.

We may have settled on November as a good compromise. Flights on Air New Zealand, possible out via Hong Kong and back via LA.

Whenever we decide it will be a fantastic trip as New Zealand seems to be such an awesome country to visit.
I shall post back as we decide more – any advice, hints, tips however would be gratefully received.
