I went to NZ this year for about 3 1/2 weeks and toured the northern part of the South Island, what a wonderful place, anyone else had the 100% NZ experience? :)

Unfortunately no. My friend emigrated out there 6 years ago and would love to go out and visit her. She lives in Christchurch, her husband is a university lecturer. every year he goes to Antartica for 6 weeks, every year she begs me and the kids to come over, every year i wish that i could.

I have spoken to a few New Zealanders working at the beaches in the summer and they say it's a great country but actually our countryside is far more accessible than theirs (bit like what my husbands' cousin tells me about the Rockies where he lives). Parts are too isolated and dangerous to get too so people tend to stick to the safer tourist paths.

But my friend emails me almost every week with great pictures of places they have visited( even though they are desperate to move to Australian). It looks fantastic.

You should go to some of these places Maria, it's a crying shame to miss out so much.
