Exploring New Zealand's South Island (Mostly) On Foot

About this blog

Since before we were married, we've been saving airline miles to go to New Zealand. Now Sidney is 12 and old enough to enjoy multi-day backpacking trips, and we have enough miles to get the three of us there and back. 2008 is the year we spend six weeks of our North Carolina winter in New Zealand's summer. We plan to spend most of our time tramping four of New Zealand's nine Great Walks--all on the South Island. In between hikes we hope we'll be able to get to an internet cafe to write about and post our experiences, particularly so Sidney's 7th grade class can follow our travels. We'll try to post photos, too, but no promises!
