In November of 2015 we visited New Zealand. We had been thinking about New Zealand for a long time, because of the excellent hiking and the interesting wildlife. But we didn’t start booking things until September, so when we tried to book the Milford Track we found that the next available opening wasn’t until March!
So all right then, we booked the Routeburn and Kepler Tracks instead. And we booked some time on offshore islands, where some of the native birds still survive: Tiritiri Matangi, Kapiti Island, and Stewart Island.
We’ve published our diaries and photos in the web pages section, starting here: New Zealand 2015.
