Hej there! On 03/09/19 I will start a 2,5 week roadtrip across New Zealand. Starting in Auckland the journey will lead to Coromandel Peninsula, Rotorua, Matamata (Hobbiton), the Waitomo Caves, Lake Taupo, Tangariro NP and Wellington on the Northern Island. On 03/16/19 I want to take the ferry to Picton. The next stops will be Abel Tasman NP, Franz Josef Glacier and the road along the west coast will lead us to Queenstown. Fjordlands NP, Dunedin and the eastcoast are the last stops on the way to the final destination, Christchurch. I am looking for some company along the way and the opportunity of sharing the costs for transport and accommodation. The car is a SUV with enough space for comfortable travelling and your luggage. I look forward to meet you in New Zealand! I know it is a quick trip, so if you have the luxury of having more time than I do, just join me for a while along the way.
