The top link is our day by day travel history we’ll be updating along the way. Click the link below it to see our draft of a daily itinerary for the North Island and start of the South.  Thanks to Mick Beckers for publishing such a detailed account of his trip which we were able to use in creating our itinerary.  See his amazing blog here:

Note: The bottom daily itinerary is extremely subject to change.  In all likelihood, we will be off itinerary (either ahead or behind schedule) within just a few days.  Bad weather, tiredness, wanting to stay somewhere beautiful for more time, and our desire to see a cricket match are all examples of things that can and will put us off schedule.  We are planning to use the itinerary as a general guideline, not a strict schedule.
