Welcome to another post of helping a reader travel! As I’ve mentioned before, I have not been to every destination (unfortunately), but do get questions from friends and other blog readers on all sort of travel destination questions. Thus far, we’ve been able to help other readers travel to Maui, The Greek Islands, Pacific Coast Highway, Argentina /Buenos Aires, Costa Rica, Cape Cod & The Islands, Iceland, Geneva, Canadian Rockies, Rome, Israel, Peru, Stockholm, Chicago, Paris, Hanoi, Austin, Puerto Rico, Bruges, Salzburg, Istanbul, Las Vegas, and India/Golden Triangle.
So this weeks travel destination includes Auckland. I received the following email from reader Ronald:
“I am looking to do an Australia and New Zealand trip for 14 days. We’ll be flying into Auckland and it would be great if readers have thoughts on the best places to visit, as well as ways to get around (bus vs. rental car. vs. flights). In New Zealand, we want to see glaciers, penguins, fjords, and Lord-of-the-Rings-style scenery. We’re more interested in seeing nature than cities or museums, and we want to keep it to a relatively moderate cost (although happy to splurge using hotel points — Marriott, Hyatt, Starwood, Hilton, or Priority Club). Thanks for all the help!”
If you’ve ever been to Auckland and have any recommendations, let’s help out reader Ronald by commenting below. In the next few “Help a Reader Travel” posts, we’ll hit on the South Island of New Zealand as well as different parts of Australia to fully help out Ronald on his 14 day journey.
Also, if you have any upcoming travel where you need some help, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to be a featured “Help a Reader Travel” Monday special. Thanks!
