Nau mai, haere mai! That's how local Kiwis say "welcome!" Our journey in New Zealand will kick off as we depart Christchurch in the morning, making a fantastic trek across the Canterbury Plains and over Arthur's Pass, which will bring us to the West Coast. Around every corner, we will enjoy a picturesque view, so we should be sure to have our cameras ready. We will visit Hokitika, famous for its jade, before stopping in the town of Franz Josef.
