It is now September and spring will be here shortly. Remember when you are planning your New Zealand vacation that their seasons are the opposite of those found in North America. When it is fall here it is spring there.
The spring is the perfect time to visit New Zealand as it is a season of change. If you are visiting the South Island then you will be able to witness the melting snow and ice in glacier country, you will be able to witness the explosion of new vegetation and you will be able to enjoy fresh air and warm weather. If you are visiting the North Island then you can take advantage of tropical weather and conditions especially in the far north.
If you have already planned your vacation to New Zealand for this spring then it is time to finalize things. Make sure you have travel insurance, make sure you have all of your travel documents and make sure you learn about the health hazards New Zealand has to offer during the spring. You will also want to create a packing list and pick up the last minute items that you will need for your trip.
Before you leave on your vacation make sure your home is ready for your absence. If you have pets make sure your home is safe for them to be left by themselves and hire someone to walk them and feed them. You will also want to heighten your home security by either hiring a housesitter or informing your security company that you will be out of the country between date A and date B.
