Oh cool. I'm from Tassie :-)

When was your last trip to NZ? This will be my first of hopefully many trips.

New Zealand can still get quite cold especially in the South Island which is very similar to Norway in terms of scenery and weather.

I've been to Toronto twice and its a nice part of the world to live in. Enjoyed checking out the wineries on the way to Niagara falls and also trying out the ice wine; Tim Hortons coffee.

This video of N.Z is pretty good and worthwhile watching:

Thank you for the video. I had previously watched one that you had recommended, but this one was beautiful... and I am already thinking we're not going to do New Zealand any justice by trying to fit it all in to 11 days. Ummmm... return trip?!!! LOL! anyone need anything from Canada??? if I can fit it in my luggage and its legal I will try to bring it... you have to carry it for the tour though! :-) 10 days away and counting until my flight. so excited!!

You're more than welcome. N.Z is like a sample of the best scenery that is available in the world contained into 2 major islands.The northern part on the Bay of islands is a lot like Hawaii; Central part around Rotorua is like Iceland with the geothermal activity and the south island is a lot like the northern part of Norway with its rugged fiords and mountains. The added bonus being its a very affordable country and this trip cost wise is very good value .On my previous trip in 2002 the south island definitely stood out.

Can't think of anything right now but thanks for the offer though.
