Tailored Travel Talk. NZ Spring 2014
Kia Ora Travelers,
Spring is here! Lambing is underway and daffodils are coloring the landscape all over.
Last month we invited our previous guests from the past three years to submit photos they had taken and reflect their New Zealand experience. All photos are posted on our Facebook page and one is here to the right.
New Zealand will have the chance to vote for their government on 20 September –in an entirely different approach and execution from the USA presidential elections.
As usual, if you refer guests who sign up with Tailored Travel for a guided custom tour, we will reward you with ‘Gathered Thoughts: The basket of knowledge in Maori legend’. These are commissioned art works, mixed media on hand made paper by local Nelson artist Marilyn Andrews. See picture on the right.
On 28 September New Zealander’s will put the clock forward –spring’s definitely here!
Air Tahiti Nui has added Washington DC to their itinerary, thanks to an expanded code share agreement with American Airways. Nowadays, 15 US cities are accessible via this new code-share agreement. They also have a new International terminal at Los Angeles (LAX)
New York has a bit of Kiwi; you can now cool down at the minus 5 degree ice bar at the Hilton Midtown. 80 tons of carved ice creating the walls, chairs, sculptures, including the ‘glasses’ you drink from. Some of you may have visited the one here in Queenstown!
HAVEN”T BEEN TO NEW ZEALAND YET? OR PLANNING ANOTHER VISIT?
Escape before the Christmas break with a relaxing New Zealand journey, exploring our scenery, culture and acquire some unique NZ purchases such as Jade –to take back to the cold and put under the tree. OR: BBQ on the beach, dreaming of a white Christmas at 80 degrees F: Sounds different? Sounds New Zealand!
Bill and Joan Sherwood, October 2018
We bid farewell to our New Zealand guide, Robert Panzer this morning. He is an excellent guide to the South Island. We traveled 1560 miles with his expert driving up and over winding mountain roads (on the wrong side of the road). Although we covered a lot of miles, Robert knew the perfect spots to stop for photos and walks/hikes/tramps. He designed our trip so that each day and at almost every turn, our experience was better than the last. We enjoyed beautiful accommodations and delicious meals every day and night. Our hosts at each of these boutique hotels were wonderful and made us want to stay longer. If you’re looking for our travel blog see: sherwood2018.tumblr.com
