Our 2018 Trip Day By Day

Our 2018 Trip Day By Day

Here is a day by day summary of our February 2018 trip to New Zealand. The major stops on our trip were Auckland, Tauranga, Carterton, Renwick, Christchurch, Curio Bay, Queenstown, Hokitika, Picton, Wellington, Rotorua. We managed to see both islands, but even with 16 days in country it was not nearly enough time. We definitely want to go again and will likely spend the majority of our next trip in the South Island, especially the west side of the island.
