Yup Trumpy is at the top of the exotic locations list. I saw New Zealand about like he saw the southeast US. We flew into Auckland, got screwed up in baggage claim and missed the flight to Dunedin. We got to spend a few hours in the Wellington airport with Hobbits or something. It was pretty cool actually but that was when we found out they didn't have coffee anymore. Everything was espresso. We were off to Dunedin. Dunedin was a good primer into the country. We had a real nice couple days at lake Taupo and there were some nice trails around there for a walk. We met a lot of great people and just kept that vibe going around the south island, to the north island and drive around there a bit. Last stop was the military museum in Auckland (just for me).
New Zealand is really a cool place. We spent 3 1/2 weeks there and I could have spent another month. You can do touristy stuff in Queenstown or you can just get back to nature in plenty of places. We spent a real nice day walking around Bushy Park, a bird sanctuary. Of course if you like sheep, they are everywhere. I don't know if the turkeys are introduced or if they are native. I did think they were a North American thing tho.
