How much will a coach trip to New Zealand cost us?

Please, please keep the reports coming, it would be cruel not to!



PS have you reversed the images? The sun seems to be on the wrong side...

Thanks all for your interest and replies,
For Notbad, That sun thing has had me worried for the last 41 years
They are just working on this end of the motorway, and I think they are nearly through with one side of the tunnel,( how big is the bus?)

Can't wait for the tunnel to be finished, I've stocked the boat up on jam butties and I'm setting sail on the next tide, should be with you by 2019

That brings back memories, fishing over the side of the ship with handlines while we were tied up at the pier at Opua, plenty of gurnards there, and yellowtails caught on bare hooks with a bit of frayed string on the shanks. We had some fun in Auckland harbour as well, with little barracuda attracted by a cluster light hung just above the surface, and various types of wrasse under the ship.

Thanks, I used to fish the Auckland inner harbour just above the bridge when I had a friend who lived there, but it is too far to drag the dinghy now and too hard to park. Still very good in the summer with mostly snapper especially on the channel edges.
