Topping Life Lists

New Zealand features in Washington Post series ‘Going Our Way’ which this week describes the best way of working to see the sights of the country. Orlando traveller Dara Curran asked the newspaper for tips on planning a six-week budget-conscious itinerary to New Zealand. In a couple of decades of listening to people tell Post reporter K.C. Summers about their trips, there’s only one country she’d never heard anyone say anything even remotely negative about: New Zealand. “The word ‘magical’ tends to come up a lot,” Summers writes. “Also: beautiful, amazing, stunning, pristine, awe-inspiring. With its dramatic landscapes, unique wildlife and distinctive culture, it’s no wonder the Colorado-sized country tops many travelers’ life lists. Curran’s dream is to rent a mini motor home with a foldout table and a bed where she can work by day and camp at night. One option to consider — especially if traditional motor homes freak you out — is the small-scale, New Zealand-designed, two-berth camper van, Spaceship.”
