Trip was amazing! Sue, our agent agent, responded immediately to our Zicasso request. She really "got" us from the beginning, responding with suggestions that were remarkably close to our final itinerary. She was a great help in "editing" the trip, helping us hone in on our destinations and figuring out the complex logistics. No request was too big or too small, and she always responded in a timely manner. Sue was creative and proactive, and a pleasure to work with!
South Island of NZ is a dream. Hard to even narrow down the highlights, as there were so many, but hiking to the Fox Glacier in pouring rain might be the greatest. As our guide said, "There is no bad weather - only bad equipment." He took us to an outfitter for heavy-duty rain gear, and we set off with 3 guides and spotters. We hiked to the furthest viewing point of the glacier and felt a tremendous sense of accomplishment in doing something we never knew we had in us. Inspiring! And standing between towering waterfalls, a raging river with chunks of glacial ice bobbing downriver, and the glacier in front of us left an indelible impression. And luckily, the evening before, the weather was clear and sunny, and we observed the glacier, Mt. Cook, and the 2 other highest NZ peaks as the sun set from a glorious pasture with grazing sheep and cows.
Snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef was another thrill! And kayaking for the first time ever in Doubtful Sound! Sydney Harbor! So many special moments...
Break up the air travel. And as amazing as Uluru was, it was so terribly hot and dusty that the time and effort to get there - and resultant bronchitis - might not have been worth it. Would have used the extra time in Melbourne.
