I have the opportunity to go anywhere I want on vacation in a few months. Since I'm currently deployed, when soldiers go on R&R, the DOD will purchase us a round trip ticket to anyplace we want. I have three countries currently on my short list. I have never visited any of them except in my imagination or in magazines. If anyone has every been to New Zealand (South Island), New Caledonia, or The Cook Islands, I would be grateful for any information outside of a blog or magazine. Good or bad it doesn't matter.

Hi Bainst I lived in NZ for 30 years and visited the South Island several times. I can recommend it has a great holiday destination. We rented a motor home and spent 10 days driving from Christchurch via Lake Tekapo through to Queenstown and Milford Sound then across to Dunedin and back up the east coast to Christchurch. I'm happy for you to email me direct with any questions you have.

Here are some links to my last visit in 2007.

Barbara,
I will most definitely be contacting you with any questions that I have. This is exactly what needed.
