In January of 2006 we had the holiday of a lifetime to New Zealand. It was a place Chris always wanted to visit so we booked three weeks off work and jumped on a plane, with just a hire-car booked at the other end. Once we got there, we booked accommodation as we went along using the great tourist information, or I-Sites as they are known as in New Zealand, which ranged from Hotels, Bed & Breakfasts and even a homestay.
We drove 3000 miles in our 3 weeks there, which may seem a huge amount but as the roads are empty it was a pleasure, especially with the spectacular scenery. All in all it was an incredible holiday and a country that I'd recommend visiting to everyone!
Our holiday is broken down day by day here with a separate page for each day. You can click on an area of the maps below which will take you to the page covering the location clicked. Clever stuff eh?! If you want any information on places we visited then drop me an e-mail and I'll see what I can remember and send back some details!
