Trip Report New Zealand SI and Auckland

Jump to last reply

Hi all. Will try to do a trip report since I read a lot of posts when planning ours for July 2016 which was very helpful to us. Got home and got very busy. We are a 40 something couple from New Orleans and the goal is to escape the heat of our summer.

We spent 2 weeks prior in Australia and then flew to Christchurch for another 2 weeks in NZ. It's been over 5 years since the earthquake, but they are still recovering.

We spent the night at Pomeroy's Pub/Bed & Breakfast. Enjoyed dinner and live music. We booked a room on the private courtyard side and didn't hear any noise from the pub. WIFI was good here too, but that became a problem as the trip went on.

It was important to me for WIFI because if I didn't post anything to my parents, I would get a 3am text asking if we were OK. I got a passport plan from ATT and my phone worked great for maps and texting.

This B&B was booked ahead and our place in Queenstown. Since it was slow season there, we decided where to drive each day based on the weather forecast. It worked out very well this way as the only rain we had was the first evening and following morning in Christchurch.
