New Zealand Honeymoon (Part 1) - Initial Plan....
|(Image captured by myself, Canon 60D with Canon 10-22mm lens)|
Honestly, New Zealand was not my first thought for spending my honeymoon for due to quite a number of reasons. The first thought of the place was Korea which we have planned to visit this country for quite a while. The main reason I have selected Korea initially was due to the lower cost spending for this holiday and also the attractive sceneries are also one of my consideration.

As that was the first time we were doing backpack alone (My wife and myself), we have some nervous and do not know how to start with the route planning although we have gone through numerous of information. We started to do the planning in September 2010 and our real tour is around end of January 2011.
For our honeymoon, we were managed to have 14 days leave from my employer, this is the longest period the employer allowed after requesting few times. We planed to visit New Zealand in summer and to the South Island only, the weather there is about 10-15 degree (but experienced that has few days the temperature fell below 10 degree and hit about 5-8 degree in the morning), cool man.
The main reason I chose to visit South Island of New Zealand is due to not enough of vacantion leave I managed to get. In addition, photography is my hobby, I would think that South Island is more suitable to me and my wife after researching some information as we both really like the natural especially the landscaping.
The image I attached on this page, was taken at the Malaysia Airport (KLIA) when we were waiting for the flight to Brisbane, Australia. (We did transit from Brisbane to Christchurch, New Zealand). That was a very exciting day!!!
