We (2 adults & 14yr old daughter) are planning a 3 week trip out to New Zealand within the next few weeks, most probably heading for Auckland to start. We have seriously been contemplating emigrating for many years and we now have the unexpected chance to go for a holiday. We love driving anywhere we go, but how the heck do we go about planning this in such a short period of time? Hopefully we would be looking for a trip that would make or break our decision to emigrate. Travelling during New Zealands winter would I feel not be detrimental to this decision but I really want to make it memorable one. What is a realistic itinerary to see as much of the islands as possible & would be it ok to find accomodation as we go? In anticipation, many thanks.
