Me and my Minna will be spending our xmas holidays of 2015/16 by traveling to New Zealand. This will be a 3 week trip, where we first have a 2 night layover in Tokyo, and then we drive around the islands of New Zealand for 2 weeks, and finally on the way back to Finland we have a 3 night layover in Hong Kong. Layovers make the flights a little more bearable, as they are 10 to 11 hour flight segements, and doing two of those back to back really hurts my back.
Below picture shows the global flight plan, staring 18 Dec 2015, ending 9 Jan 2016. The date notation is of the forform DD.MM.YYYY, which we use in Finland.
The main attraction of the trip is touring New Zealand. First we spend a few day on North Island visiting some relatives. Then we fly to South Island, drive around the NZ Southern Alps, take the Interislander ferry back to North Island. THe route can be seen in the picture below.
