From Auckland, I got a good price on a Jet Star flight of around $80 and flew to Queenstown. Get a window seat on the plane, some of the views are breathtaking. Queenstown is on the shore of Lake Wakatipu, with hiking trails along the Lake, also Queenstown has a reputation for being the Adventure Capital of the World.

Lake Tekapo is just beautiful, no other words, just beautiful. After 10 days of travelling in New Zealand, it was a much needed relaxing day. Lake Tekapo is part of a UNESCO Dark Sky Reserve, there is old Church, Church of the Good Shepherd where at night tourist gather for stargazing.
Antarctica. I plan to go to Antarctica, until I saw the exhibition, I had only Explored the possibility to going to Antarctica via Ushuaia Argentina, NZ is another possibility, if anyone has any thoughts on going to Antarctica though NZ or Argentina, please leave comments.
