New Zealand

How long were you there for?
25 days

What was the single highlight of your trip?
Milford Sound in unusually fine weather

Any lowlights/cautionary tales?
By British standards it's rather expensive

Any absolutely MUST see sights/activities?
Weather permitting, Milford Sound and flight from Milford to Queenstown. Wai-o-Tapu Thermal Reserve, a hellish landscape, described by Bernard Shaw as the nearest thing to hell

Any absolutely DON'T see sights/activities?
Can't think of any

If you could give one piece of advice, what would it be?
Considering the distance (30 hours + flight time) it's likely to be the trip of a lifetime, so make it a long one and cover both islands. It's exhausting, but well wothwhile.

I wish I'd known...?
Can't think of any.

Any other comments?
It's the most amazingly beautiful country.
