My mom wants to visit New Zealand. Any advice? Tours, etc? We are willing and healthy, but we've both become a bit gimpy in the last year with arthritis in various unfortunate spots. I don't think that either one of us is ready for driving on the right, but I've never taken a package tour. I used a cane on our recent vacation to shift some of the weight from my arthritic feet to my arthritic wrists and had no trouble walking a few miles per day. My mom has back trouble that precludes art museums
, but is otherwise able to walk on flat and mild hills. We had fun 18 months ago on a Tylenol and Aleve fueled hiking tour to France, but have had some mobility set backs since then.
