- Wedding: November 2014
I previous wrote another post about my new zealand honeymoon, and took your suggestions to focus on the South Island. We are flying into Auckland from the US, then straight from there to Christchurch. So far, we are planning on seeing Milford Sound, Marlboro Sound, and a couple of other places I can’t think of at the moment (it’s only three months away, and we have NOTHING booked but our flights..eek!).
So, obviously we are renting a car once in Christchurch. Is there a certain route that anybody recommends from Christchurch to the Queenstown area (in terms of spectacular views or non-touristy-but-cool little towns?)
This is ignorant of me, but is a flight required to get from the South Island to the North, or can we take a ferry? The reason I’m asking is because a few of you mentioned how amazing of a town Wellington is, and I’d like to visit there if time permits, although I don’t think we’ll have time.
We will be in New Zealand for a full 8 days. We’d like to have a mix of both relaxation/romance and adventure. The time of year we’ll be there will not offer, from what I understand, skiing or snowboarding, so we are leaving that out of our plans. We’ve heard of the tree house hotels and I know we are planning on staying in one of those a night or two.
Any restaurant recommendations in Christchurch, Queenstown area, and towns in between would be great- any type of food.
