    It was a great trip but the previous rains prevented us from doing some activities that we were planning to do.

    New Zealand is the shining star of this trip. Stunningly beautiful. Chilly in late October but not over run by tourists at that time of spring either. There was a great variety of outdoor activities. Camp dinners were excellent.
