8 Weeks on the Road

We have decided to set ourselves a challenge.......8 weeks on the road in New Zealand, 3 people, $100 a day!  Our budget must include accommodation, food and attractions.......can we do it?

We have spent the last 10 years exploring the South Island so we have decided to concentrate most of the 8 weeks on the North Island.  We will be heading South for a few things we have missed in the past 10 years, but then is onward and northward!

The boys (hubby Jason and son Hadley) will be blogging on the trip, I will be doing the driving.  Our wheels - our 19 year old Big Horn!

Where to start?  Blogs, websites and a good map (and a pin) and a few travel guides.  If you are looking at doing any travel in NZ we recommend the following guides.

New Zealand (Lonely Planet Country Guides)

New Zealand's North Island (Lonely Planet Country & Regional Guides)

We hope you join us on our trip - including the good, the bad and the ugly, and of course, the amazingly beautiful!
