I’ve finally added all my New Zealand photos to Flickr. If you’d like to view the album, then click here or type the following link into your favorite internet browser: I have a couple videos from the trip which I will add tomorrow. In the meantime, I’ve calculated my NZ expense report. I spent much less on this trip than my solo trip to the Mediterranean in 2005. I was able to keep the overall price down by staying in hostels and eating some meals in (ie: breakfasts and 1 dinner). The overall experience wasn’t negatively impacted by these cost-cutting measures. In fact, it may have enhanced it! In conclusion, a vacation to New Zealand doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg.
