What's it like to live in Seattle?
I'm planning to visit New Zealand in this November around 11 - 12 Nov, with everything not booked yet. My itinerary :
12 Nov : Arrive at CHC
13 Nov : CHC - Arthur's Pass ( stop for 3 hrs for lunch and explore National Park ) - Hokitika
14 Nov : Morning visit Hokitika Gorge, drive to Fox's Glacier. Book Guided Helihike or Guided Hike ( is prebook required?)
15 Nov : Visit Lake Matheson in the morning, do the Fox's Glacier tour
16 Nov : If unable to do FG Tour ytd, do today and then ride to Wanaka ( 5 - 6 Hrs leisure drive )
17 Nov : Wanaka - Roy's Peak - The Lonely Wanaka tree
18 Nov : Wanaka - Te Anau (depart afternoon, morning either relax or do paragliding / last photo ops walk)
19 Nov: Te Anau Milford Sound Tour - Queenstown (0645 check out from hostel, drive to Milford Sound, be present 20 mins before cruise time. Afternoon around 4/5pm drive to Queenstown for 3 - 4 hrs drive)
20 Nov : Queenstown - Glenorchy / Explore the Lakes
21 Nov : Queenstown - Twizel / Pukaki / Mt Cook
22 Nov : Twizel/Pukaki - Hooker Valley Track
23 Nov : Twizel/ Pukaki - Lake Tekapo
24 Nov : Lake Tekapo - Christchurch
25 Nov : Fly out of ChristChurch
Is above itinerary feasible? I'm cutting Te Anau to 2D1N, simply because i wanted to stay 1N in Tekapo.
For Te Anau, i just want to do the Milford Cruise in the morning after checking out. I understand that i don't need to book and i can get a cruise from the cruise center, but i need to arrive before 10 am or get a later cruise for 2 hrs. Obviously the price would be expensive around 169 - 170 NZD, correct?
As for the FG, please advise if i should drop it. It seems to be a weather dependent activity that i won't enjoy should it fail. Is it really worth it?
Since i will be driving a rental sedan with rates around 33-45 NZD ( with insurance hopefully ), i wonder if there's something that i need to know about driving left handed in NZ? How much would i spend for fuel over this course of 2 weeks?
