Hello all, I will be traveling through New Zealand's South Island from Jan 26 - July 31. Tentative plan is to drive from Queenstown northwest through Milford Sound --> Franz Joseph/greymouth --> Christchurch. If you are interested in joining the ride, please message me!
A little about myself: I am a graduate student at MIT/Harvard in the states, studying management/innovation/public policy. I am on a four week research trip through Fiji and Vanuatu, evaluating coconut oil as a sustainable biofuel. Apart from this travel, I will be going through NZ towards the end of January.
Very keen to have some travel companions, please message if you are interested.

Maxime366 heyy! Im flying into new zealand on Jan 26th for about 3 weeks! Im from the US too, just graduated from college and am doing a 6 month backpacking trip (actually starting in Fiji!) Whats your plan, ill be doing all of the south island as well, haven't really planned transportation bc i figured renting a car would be too expensive, so I was looking into bus passes. It would be great to try to plan something, let me know!
