During October 2006, I had the privelege of visiting New Zealand for the first time.
During the trip, I only visited the North Island for which, no doubt, I will be roundly slammed by the travel Xenophobes. However, with family links to the North Island it's a sure thing that I'll be visiting New Zealand again. During our next visit to New Zealand in November 2007, we intend to visit to South Island.
Here are some of my notes from this visit to New Zealand .
