Thanks, it is a great little spot but already too expensive for a little plot of land .... I guess that I will have to work that extra bit harder Thanks for the comment

You are right, it does look "foreign"

Unfortunately I had to skip Coromandel when I visited New Zealand, due to too little time.

I have no excuse - I have lived here for 5 and half years and I have only been to Whangamata and Pauanui - embarrassing I know but I will change that this year. I have so much of NZ to see - one can spend months here in order to soak it all up.

Where did you go on your travels in NZ ?

I probably wanted to see too much. That's a very tempting pitfall when you live on the other side of the world. You get to see NZ maybe once or twice in an entire lifetime. So I travelled both on the Northern Island as well on the Southern Island. And I had only three and a half weeks. I am sure you can see the problem. At least I can say I saw cities like Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin. I also visited the famous westcoast of the Southern Island (Te Anau - Milford Sound), Queenstown, Napier and Abel Tasman NP, Franz Josef and Fox Glacier, Rotorua, Napier, Lake Taupo, Tongariro NP.

Wow, that in itself is a fantastic itinerary. You have seen way more than what I have seen - what was your favourite area and your best experience ? I will apologise in advance for the 40 questions

It's probably not the most well-known area of NZ, but I especially liked the eerieness of the Tongariro NP. My best experience was I think the jetboat-ride (we made pirouettes at 60 kilometers per hour!), not the famous one at Queenstown, but the one at Te Anau. The drive up to Milford Sound was off course very special. For some unknown reason I seemed to like the atmosphere at Nelson very much. Very laid-back. I probably expected a little bit more more from Auckland, wasn't too excited about downtown though.

I haven't been to Tongariro NP but everybody raves about it. I will try my utmost best to get there now that there is a Hilton Hotel close by ( I don't like slumming it ). Auckland has a jet-boat now but I am sure that it will be more exciting along a narrow and shallow river somewhere in Queenstown - I will stock up on my dutch-courage I haven't done Milford Sound either one of the natural wonders of the world.

Everybody loves Nelson and that is another area that I haven't seen - I have to get my act together. You have done so much, well done

If I can recall correctly, you were here in the late 90's or was it the early 00's ? I arrived in Auckland in 2005 and I thought that parts of the downtown area was very 70's but that has all changed - it is starting to look really good. By mid 2012 it will be a new city. I can't wait

I think I was there around 2004, but I am not completely sure. I remember it had a nice waterfront although it wasn't exactly spectacular. I was more charmed by Wellington, a city with a spectacular location.
