Our Trek around New Zealand

Dennis travel blog
Welcome to our trip journal! We had some airline miles about to expire so we decided to park the motorhome for a bit and visit New Zealand. Since we were traveling that far, we just had to pop in Hong Kong to visit with old friends and stop in Australia to do the same. We rented a small motorhome and toured New Zealand for four weeks. We hope you enjoy reading about our visit. If you are considering making the same trip, we hope you find the travel log useful in your planning.
We're actually recapping this trip of 2003 in 2007 for the purpose of getting accustomed to this web page and it's features; practice prior to our trip to Alaska this year.
