Am I crazy...asking for trouble with this New Zealand Itinerary?

Jump to last reply

Help! I did not plan this February 2011 New Zealand trip as I usually do by researching on the boards and with books to determine feasibility. Instead, I planned a little bit impulsively so I'm looking for pointers for how to make this work and other improvements I could make-I've secured a lot of reservations that will be hard to undo at this point. I also have a few gaps that I could use help filling in.
I do tend to pack alot in when I travel so please keep this in mind. Most of my trips have involved moving to a new place almost every day or every other day...

Details:
Day 1: Arrive at Auckland-stay overnight in Aucklans
Day 2: Drive to Taupo. Night in Taupo
Day 3: Night in Taupo. Drive to Hawke's Bay Napier for the day (?)
Day 4: Night in Taupo. Tongariro National Park
Day 5: Drive to Rotorua. Night in Rotorua
Day 6: Night in Rotorua. Drive to Waitomo Caves (?)
Day 7: Fly out of Rotorua to Queenstown. Night in Te Anau
Day 8: Milford Sound overnight cruise
Day 9: Night in Te Anau
Day 10: Drive all day to Franz Josef. Night in Franz Josef
Day 11: Franz Josef heli-hike
Day 12: Drive to Greymouth. Night in Greymouth
Day 13: not sure-Westport?
Day 14: not sure ??
Day 15: Abel Tasman Kayak trip
Day 16: Abel Tasman Kayak trip
Day 17: not sure ?? stay in Motueka?
Day 18: Drive to Christchurch (all day ?)
Day 19: Fly out of Christchurch

Thanks for the help...i'm a little nervous at this point so would really appreciate feedback on how I could improve this at this point. It's coming up very quickly.
