How to Get Between New Zealand’s Two Main Islands

Rongotaib I've added a sixteenth part to my growing series about traveling in New Zealand, this time offering suggestions for both the normal and the less well known ways of traveling between New Zealand's two major islands as part of a vacation 'downunder'.

In addition to information on all the different ways this can be done, the article also talks about how you can avoid needing to travel between the two islands twice, and about where you can travel between the islands as well as how.

Most people simply take a ferry or fly between two of the major airports (the sometimes hair-raising approach into Wellington's Rongotai airport is shown in this image).  But there are other options as well, and perhaps choosing one of these other options might transform a 'travel hassle' into a travel highlight.
