    I was very impressed with the NZ’s natural beauty. I was surprised to learn that while we are starting summer here in Canada, you have just started your winter. Nicely written post.

    I’m planning to have a vacation to the South Island in July. I’d like to ask you if you’d recommend one of two specific locations and attractions. I’ll only be there for about 4 to 5 days and will fly from Christ Church on July 15.
