Name Backpack NZ in September

Aloha Everyone, So I just got back from a week trip in New Zealand and the moral of the story is that I MUST go back...it is paradise. I am looking to backpack the country and maybe go on some ski trips, some hiking trips and rafting adventures among other things. I loved Queenstown so I definetly want to spend some more time, but havent really seen the North Island so I would really like to explore there as well. I am finishing up my university degree on exchange in Melbourne, Australia and will be going to Indonesia for a few weeks in August so I am looking to go from mid-august to the end of September.

And...I would love to have a travel partner or two. So if you think NZ sounds like an adventure your heart is craving then drop me a line because I'd love to have someone to share the experience with.

All the best to everyone reading this :)

rubyxxcube Hi Morgana, NZ has always been on my travel list! Unfortunately, I won't be able to travel for an entire month but am looking at max of 2 weeks. So, I'd be happy to join you if that sounds workable. Let me know what your schedule is like and places you're looking to visit. I'm in it for the extreme sports (i.e. skydiving, black water rafting etc.) Let me know! -Ruby-

Lauren Hi Morgana, your trip sounds great, I've always wanted to get to NZ but unfortunately it will have to stay in the dreams for the near future. You MUST go zorbing if you haven't already!
