They had trouble with my check-in and had 4 people working on it.
Turned out that the problem was on the New Zealand end but it took an hour for them to
work it out.

Got to kayak, cave walk, glacier walk, see a Glow Worm cave, camp on the south beach and
much more.. Beautiful place..

Thanks again for advice that made things go smooth. The short layovers I was worried about
were enough time. In LA they gave me an "Express Connection" pass because of the short
layover and that put me in the shorter lines for immigration & customs.

Only thing I had to figure out was how to change airports in NZ for the last flight.
There was a shuttle but I had to ask around about where to find that shuttle.
Kia Ora!

I forgot about this once, and was lucky I had enough cash on me.

I'd love to hear that they don't even charge this anymore.
I wasn't charged at the airport. I will have to check my ticket to see if that was added but I don't remember seeing that charge.
(at least I don't remember being charged that )

Ah, the good ol' NZ glow-worm cave. To me, it felt like being under an alien sky full of electric-blue stars.

I've been to the one in Hokitika, on the west coast. It was awesome.
Didn't realize the pathway wasn't lit, though, and we went in the evening.
Could barely see our hands in front of our faces, and went in anyway.
Worth it once we got in there.
