Australia and New Zealand Planning Part III

For many travelers, Australia and New Zealand are dream destinations.  Filled with endless beauty, culture, and adventure, it is no surprise that Australia and New Zealand are featured so prominently in travel documentaries, magazines, and television shows.  They have been destinations on my bucket list for quite some time and I am beyond thrilled to be able to be checking them off this year.

In this article, I will be taking our rough itinerary and filling in the details for the New Zealand portion of our trip.  I will be discussing which island we will be visiting and why, how we plan to get around, what we are planning to see, and which tours we are planning to book for this portion of our trip.

Australia and New Zealand Travel Planning Part I

Other than actually taking the trips, there are few things I enjoy more than planning travel adventures.  In case you haven’t read my article on our travel plans for this year, we have decided to visit Australia and New Zealand.  Both of these countries have long been on our bucket list and I am very excited to finally have the chance to visit them.

As I did when I planned our trip to Machu Picchu and the Galápagos Islands last year, I am going to share with you my trip planning process.  By sharing the process by which I go about planning trips, I hope to give you some ideas on how you can save more money traveling and make your trip planning process a bit easier.
