New Zealand - a ravishing beauty

12 day road trip along the coast of South Island, New Zealand.

My mother particularly has always wanted to visit New Zealand. Last summer (2010), we realized her dream and put together a holiday the five of us would never forget. Being the travel fanatic, I spent a month reading nothing but guide books and forum postings, seeking out the "best sights" South Island had to offered before putting together an itinerary I thought the whole family would enjoy -- many fantastic natural sights (for my mother) and a good dose of adventure (for my brothers).

Finally on 28 May 2010, we packed our bags and headed to the airport, but not before checking the weather forecast. Imagine our crest-fallen faces when we found out that we were flying in the direction of gloomy skies and wet weather. Had we signed up for 12 days of cheerless overcast skies, rain coats and wellingtons?

Fortunately, our fears were unfounded and instead, we were greeted by brilliant sunshine most of the time. South Island when basked in sunlight is a gorgeous sight to behold.

That was my first post on my very first public travel blog! More to come, I hope!
