Visiting New Zealand

Visiting New Zealand

My wife was given the ultimate gift for 10 years of service at her Dental Surgery.  Her amazing bosses Chris & Christine gave her an Overseas holiday to Bali.  It was meant to be a surprise.  3 days after our flights were booked to Bali for September my wife announced that she was pregnant and was due to give birth in November 2015.

Talk about putting a spanner in the works.

My wife has never been Overseas, and Chris & Christine were still keen to make this dream happen.  This was quite a challenge as it had to be before the baby came along.  Given the time frame leading up to November this was no easy ask.  Many ideas were thrown around and eventually it was suggested for us to travel to New Zealand during June.  Staying in Queenstown which is the adventure capital of New Zealand.  In the south island, and an incredible scenic place to visit.

We spent a week in New Zealand, with the majority spent in and around Queenstown.  With one night in the stunning Wanaka.  I’ll be sharing a few pictures & stories of our adventures along the way.

We have a number of tours planned, and in particular are looking forward to visiting Milford Sound.  One of New Zealand’s most amazing wonders.  This was to be my second visit to New Zealand.  In 2003 I was fortunate to be given a free ticket over there and visited both the north and south islands.  There is something truly special about this place.  A week after visiting here the first time I started dating my future wife.  Serena Poon.

We have an amazing week ahead of us, and there would be only one rule.  I was not allowed to ride a bike
