Thanks to frequent flier miles, we were lucky enough to be able to travel to New Zealand for 2 months in 2007. We were able to tramp (hike) all or most of 6 of their "Great Walks". We were lucky to have Brian's mom and a family friend meeting up with us for a while to do 2 of the Great Walks with us- the Milford Track and the Abel Tasman Track. We spent most of February on the North Island, then moved to the South Island for all of March, and some of April as well.
All in all, it was an amazing trip. We had a fantastic time, and took nearly 3,000 pictures. When we have some time, we will cull those to a more managable number, which we will post here when we get a chance. Until then, you can read our journal for more information.
