Bob is back from New Zealand

I know it is not Europe but it does seem like a piece of Britain encased in a beautiful package that reminds me of CA in the 1950s.
Here is a link to my photo gallery for those of you thinking about a trip down under. http://www.slowphotos.com/photo/show...y.php?cat=4095

Lovely slideshow Bob! I've been thinking about a trip down under for a while.

Now you've got me thinking all over again

Up until I saw your photos, I never thought about a trip to New Zealand. Your pictures are just beautiful.

The gang looked like they were enjoying themselves, and that's what it's all about.

Bob

So glad you enjoyed our wonderful country. When I look at your great pictures I ask myself why we spend thousands of dollars to travel elsewhere!!

Hello Bob, your photos are fabulous, New Zealand is so beautiful. My stepgrandson spent some weeks there a couple of years ago as he has a job with a company that does Adventure Travel videos for cable TV. And my father was born in Wellington..imagine he wouldn't recognize it now as that was a 100 years ago! Thank you for sharing your trip with us.

Beautiful. I've been dreaming about a trip and now have to find a way to make it happen. I hope there's a trip report on this. I'll search on Fodor's other forums.

Thanks gang !
No trip report this time since I committed blasphemy and bought a tour group. Susan finally consented to go but only if I did not drive. Hmmm, imagine that. We did celebtrate my 70th while there. You can find the tour on the web by searching for GREAT NEW ZEALAND TRAVEL COMPANY and finding the PACIFIC ESCAPADE TOUR. We saw much of NZ but it will be my last bus tour--just not my style.

Thanks for posting the photos, and happy belated birthday!

We were in the South Island for about two weeks last January and loved it. For those of you considering a visit, please go!
