Though New Zealand is beautiful it's very very expensive to travel and stay at hotels or motels. They should think about that before inviting tourism.

I really loved it when I was there 9 years ago and I’ve always wanted to come back. It’s so fresh and free.

Stayed in West Auckland for a month. Been to Welly, Rotorua, Hamilton, Mt.Rhuapehu and would totally come back. I've met so many people, they will def treat you so well. Can't get enough of food, everything is very nice. Love seeing green everywhere. I love Mew Zealand! Will see you again soon!

Auckland is fun and (surprisingly) busy city that we both really liked. I know you guys were torn in the comments about whether to dedicate time there or not – but the appeal of a few good restaurants was too much to bear! I loved our road trip – the food, the people and the scenery. Although, if you can I would add two days to this itinerary, I think it would give you the time you need to really explore
