Just About Everything You Ever Needed To Know To Get The Most From Your NZ Holiday
The (Almost) Complete Guide To NZ is the kind of information you need to make the best of your holiday in New Zealand - recommendations on where to stay, where to eat, what to see.
Yes, all that. But more, much more.
Transport, rest areas, photo opportunities, historical background, special places that few others know about Ohhhh . . . heaps and heaps of stuff.
And it's all written by a local - not a visiting "editor" - who has been travelling and writing about the country for 30 years. I can give you hints and tips that only a local could possibly know - ideas that will save you time, money and tears.
This is important: No one has paid for inclusion in this guide. There are no ads and I rarely, if ever, accept free rides, accommodation etc. That way I am totally free to recommend whatever or whoever I choose.
