We thoroughly enjoyed this trip to New Zealand, October 18 - November 6, 2001. A great group of 23 elderhostelers participated. All were especially grateful to our coordinators, Ian & Val Anthony and Sheila Copas and Maureen Ellis. The trip included a homestay for 5 days with some wonderful host families in Napier. Altogether a wonderful experience!

Each of these pages includes pointers to other pages of photos from the many excursions and field trips we enjoyed along the way.
In all the photo index pages, the thumbnail photos (and their captions) are links to larger versions of the photos. These are sized for today's larger screens, so if you are on a small screen you may have to scroll the picture to see all of it. The photos are compressed to about 50k to 100k, so they should be accessible even on relatively slow connections.
