Day 1. Fly in to Christchurch.
Day 2. Pick up Motorhome. Drive straight to Hamner Springs.
Day 3. Go to Kaikoura.
Day 4. Sightseeing at Christchurch/Lyttelton
Day 5. Drive to Akaroa. Then stay overnight at Geraldine.
Day 6. Drive around Lake Tekapo/Mt Cook. Stay at Mt Cook
Day 7. Drive via Oamaru to Dunedin.
Day 8. Go to Portobello and surrounds. Then onto Owaka.(Caitlins)
Day 9. From Owaka to Invercargill. (which direction is best.???) Then continuing onto Te Anau.
Day 10. Milford Sound cruise. Back to Te Anau or Queenstown. Time permitting.
Day 11. Explore Queenstown.
Day 12. Arrowtown-Cromwell -Wanaka.

Day 17. Onto Napier
Day 18. Taupo - Rotorua
Day 19. Stay at Rotorua. Moari culture etc.
Day 20. Head up around Coromandel staying at Miranda. Is it worth going all the way around???
