Tailored Travel Talk. NZ Winter 2015
Kia Ora Travelers,
Spring is here! Lambing is underway and daffodils are coloring the landscape all over.
We had our shortest day and already looking towards spring- even though we are in the midst of our winter. Skiing is in full swing at our mountain ski fields and the first lams are born already and jumping in the (frosted) fields.
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. Air New Zealand has added Houston to Auckland flights.
Our season, which starts in our spring (October) and runs through to fall (April), has already filled up nicely and we are already looking at forward bookings for October / November 2016. Early reservations are essential!
NORTH AMERICA VISIT
If all goes to plan, our son Erik will graduate from Quinnipiac University in CT in May 2016, and I will be planning presentation visits around that date.
“Our trip was far beyond our expectations. We knew it would be stress free, and we thought we knew the beauty of the island, but we never expected you to be a historian, a botanist, zoologist, restaurant expert, navigator, conversationalist, and an extremely interesting guy with whom to spend over two weeks. We can truly say, it was our best vacation ever.
I really have a lot of other positive things to say about the trip and we are still kicking ourselves for not Bungy jumping. Not your fault.
We will forever remember our visit to New Zealand’s South Island. Thank you for making it relaxing and informative. You are the best!”
Sincerely, Ella and Dale MacFiggen

The level of the accommodations you provide is outstanding and is only superseded by the friendliness and uniqueness of the hosts that allowed Kitty and I to share their homes.
Their life stories make the history of New Zealand more personal, meaningful and alive. How exciting is it to have dinner sitting on top of a gold mine with the owner telling you the story of discovering gold while digging a sewer drain field or how their family started off with a small plot of land…40,000 acres outback!!!!
