A September 2002 trip
to Nelson by Loves Australia
Quote: Nelson, New Zealand, is a beautiful wine region in the northern portion of New Zealand's southern island. The trip was two magical days in the midst of an incredibly fabulous vacation to New Zealand and Australia.
We ended up booking a day trip through the wine region with a small tour company. When we showed up the next morning, it was the three of us, a couple on their 25th anniversary trip, and the driver. The six of us got on like a house on fire, and the laughter and camaraderie just built as we added wine tastings to the day!
The entire trip was special, but that day really cemented for me what is so incredibly awesome about traveling to another country. I spent a day with people who live on the other side of the world, sharing a fun experience, having a great time, and learning that life truly does exist (quite well) outside my own backyard!
