Highlights included the often stunning scenery, the unusual plant and bird life and the accommodation NZ has made for outdoor oriented travellers like us. Campgrounds are frequent, hiking trails abound and did we mention that public restrooms are everywhere?

Nowhere we've been before have so many people just come up to us and started conversations, often asking how our trip was going and if we'd been treated well. There's a real sense of pride among the people in their country.
