my dear fellow hounds,
i'm heading to new zealand in a couple weeks and don't necessarily trust the guidebooks so wondering if anybody had any good tips.
i've already read what's been posted, and those are some great posts, but my itinerary is slightly different so thought i'd check and see if people have recs for the cities i'm travelling thru.
in addition to auckland and christchurch which have already been mentioned, we'll be trekking thru kaikoura, blenheim, picton, nelson, and greymouth.
love to hear any suggestions, and also, since it's our first trip down there, any other useful tips or things to see that we wouldn't find out from guidebooks would be greatly appreciated as well. thanks a lot!
