ast year, my husband Mike and I decided to visit New , Zealand. We wanted to tour the country, but we both hate long car journeys. The travel agent suggested a 13-day coach trip. It was a good price, so we booked it with our plane tickets. We made a good choice. The coach journeys passed quickly and our driver told us about each place. We learned a lot from him.

.

We flew from london to Christchurch and had a free day there before the coach trip started. We weren't at all tired, so we walked round the city from morning till night. It has good museums, many restaurants and lovely shops. The best place we visited on the trip was Queenstown. You can choose to do almost anything, from sailing to climbing. We had three days there, but it wasn't enough.

All the hotels were good. My favourite one was the Puka Park Lodge. It was on a hill above a beach and there were trees everywhere. We woke up and listened to the birds singing. Now, when we're eating breakfast at home and we hear the noise of the traffic, we think of those beautiful mornings in New Zealan'd!
