New Zealand North Island in 7 days. Auckland to Wellington.

When you get offered a familistration trip you never want to turn it down normally it involves lots of hotel visits and plenty of lovely food and wine!

So when I was offered New Zealand I jumped at the chance of going…not realising what I had let my self in for.. Until the itinerary arrived!!

31 hours later we arrived in Auckland. Our first adventure was a bike ride around the harbour that certainly got my legs moving after sitting on a flight for so long. The following day we took in some of the beautiful scenery that NZ has to offer with a stop off on route for some lunch in a local pub.

A trip i’d recommend would be a to visit Hobbiton, even if you aren’t a film buff, to learn about why this land was chosen and how it was built. The scenery is incredible.

Rotorua is a town not to be missed and we certainly took advantage of the available experiences, spending 3 hours ziplining, walking the tree to tree swing bridges, treetop platforms and walking trails. This was then followed by a visit to the Gondola and luge ride at the skyline complex.

If that wasn’t enough we then endured a high speed jet boat ride combining 360 degree spins and this certainly offered the best view of beautiful Huka Falls.

After a tiring day we continued our journey to Napier where we took a luxurious 1930s vintage car journey taking in the famous Art Deco Quarter.

The above was just a taster of my experience –  if you would like to know more please call in to see me.

(By the way I did visit lots of hotels and have some lovely food and wine! How could I not!!)
