Subject: Re:New Zealand -- tour or indie?
Hi Didi,

I spent 2 weeks in South Island NZ. Did all of my travelling solo using the fantastic intercity buses they have there + one train ride.

Made all of my reservations for hotels and long-distance buses in advance over the internet. There was only one mixup when some clerk accidentally used my email name rather than my real name for the reservation LOL - the driver was great! He let me look over his list and that's how I found out what had happened!

If you want to write to me, I'll be glad to send you all of my links from my planning days. I have l-o-t-s of them :)

Go and enjoy. Don't let some group rush you around and don't miss out on some of the best spots becuase the tour groups don't go there!
