Re: Travel: New Zealand

I have not been to South Island, so I can't advise on that. But in general, do ensure the driver has enough rest between places of visits. Have a thought for the driver as he/she would not really seeing the great scenery along the way as he/she is concentrating on the road conditions. For me, I do ...
