Flying Air New Zealand (those new 777's!) to Auckland airport, getting a hotel room where you can open the doors and nature is outside...no, the beach. Just lying in the hotel, kayaking, hiking, eating out. I can see it now.
Actualy I've had it. A small house with back steps directly to the beach. Water so clear that you dont need a snorkel mask to see the fish - Just look down and there they are! Water so warm that its almost like you dont notice much difference between the air and water. All of...

I found a deal last night to go later this year, so fingers crossed... am saving up.
