Nelson for a one or two wk home exchange?

Jump to last reply

We have just been offered a one to two week home exchange in Nelson. The pictures are lovely. My concerns are two fold: The weather and possible car sickness driving there.

The exchange is offered from late Oct to early Nov. Will it be cold? Snow likely? Cold is okay, a bit of rain all right, but snow NO.

Also, it's a 25 hr car ride from So California, though perhaps we could fly to Spokane and rent a car, but is it a tough trip for someone who is VERY prone to motion sickness. I get very ill on twisty narrow roads, within 5 minutes of driving.

Thanks very much.
