Susan Mills is from Adelaide in South Australia and was a recent guest on our Kiwi 12 Day Tour. This was her second visit to New Zealand, her first was in 1976. She left her husband and grown up kids back in Australia and flew over to New Zealand for a couple of weeks to experience her first small group tour here. She kept a wonderful diary of all the places, people and experiences which made up her trip, which she has kindly agreed to share with us. We hope you enjoy Susan's account of her trip as much as we did.
