Our first trip to NZ Nov. 6 - Nov. 18. A few questions: What clothes should we pack? I have a CPAP and was told that it would automatically adapt to the NZ current. Is this true? Any other tips?

Anne Benaquist Aug 04, 2015 at 10:59 AM

Hello, November participants. I'm looking forward to our tour. I'm from Boston but am doing some volunteer work in the Cook Islands immediately prior to the tour. See you soon. Anne B.

We will be coming in from Chicago at 1:00 pm. so we will have lots of time. David I think your idea of buying an umbrella there is a good one. We have rain Jackets we are bringing. The temp here is 58 so not much change. See you at LAX.

David Clement May 10, 2015 at 05:09 PM

Dave & Sally Clement
We are on May 14 trip. Live in Tucson AZ., flying into LAX from PHX.
Rick Steves says buy umbrella when you get where you are going if you need one. Cheap. We did last Sept. in Ljubljana and paid 4 Euro . We are carrying small iPad, no computer.
Alice Wittmann May 10, 2015 at 05:40 PM

We will probably just pack our umbrella. We have an ipad also. My niece who lives in Christchurch says the weather has been pretty good this week so hopefully that will hold out. Looking forward to meeting everyone!

Kim Ly Harbin May 10, 2015 at 02:49 PM

Thank you for the input. I have been away from the bitter cold and pouring rain the last twenty years, hard to remember how it feels like. Hope I can still weather the challenge :). Looking forward to meeting you Alice, Kathy and Ralph soon.
