the great new zealand adventure
we are going on a road trip come this january, we will be driving around new zealand for 15 days. while i have known since september of this trip, i have not had the time nor patience to plan for it until recently but thank god we started buying new zealand dollars since then and the currency has really gone up the roof in recent months.
i have only started looking at the map of new zealand when i met the representatives of air zealand. i added one of them on my facebook and was bowled over with the beauty of this country. the thing is when i think of new zealand. i think of cattle, lambs milk, gooseberries now known as the kiwi fruit, peter jackson and lord of the rings.
new zealand is so so so much more…
i have my reservations about going to new zealand. there are so many attractions, i wasn’t sure how to scale it and they are all at different parts of new zealand.
i am natural born worrier – i worry about how to get there, how long will i have to drive from one spot to another, will i have time to see everything.. but seriously – what is life if we keep sticking to a plan?
i have started drawing profusely on the map of new zealand – planning the trip. i bought a note book detailing a skeletal framework of our adventure. it’s a primitive way of doing it and i realized soon enough this is a terrible way of doing it.
one of my concerns is accommodation – it’s summer time in new zealand and a lot of of northern hemisphereans have gone there to escape the blistering cold – is it going to be hard for me to find a place to stay? although there are loads of hotels and b&bs i worry about not being able to find a room . but at the same time, i don’t want to book accommodation for all 14 nights when we want to take it easy driving from one place to another.
i remembered what steve jobs had said about apps – ” there is an app for everything”. i was searching through the app store and i found exactly what i needed. air zealand has a customized app just for my great new zealand trip!!!!
seriously, i am really looking forward to going. i have a feeling that new zealand may be one of the last few places where life is still good. i am going to share with you some of my most highly anticipated activities that i will be embarking on. it’s so pet friendly, it’s sad thing, we can’t bring sophie along!!
