A day's trip through the pass

I believe one of the rites of passage when it comes to travel is to at some point drive through the South Island of New Zealand. If it is not officially written in a book somewhere, I will make sure to lobby for its inclusion.

The beauty of Arthur's Pass is definitely worth taking the trip out here, whether it be on a day trip from Christchurch, on your way through to the West Coast, or a full day adventure.

    The Arthur's Pass area certainly looks like a great spot to visit! I'm with you on the rental car - you've got to have freedom in a place like that!

    Heading for NZ on Friday - moving south from C'church so will be giving the Pass a miss this time but it surely is a must-see part of the country. leyle
