Downloaded this onto my Kindle to read while we were touring the Catlins Reserve in the very South of the South Island of NZ in a camper van. Mr Buckley described a New Zealand I struggled to recognize. Indeed, I learnt more about what he and his partner ate and drank than I did about the country he was visiting. NZ is renowned for its outstanding scenery, friendly people, varied and unique wildlife and diverse culture. Most of which seemed to pass the author by. I was particularly disappointed with his descriptions of Queenstown which is my second home. Yes it is the adrenalin capital of the world and there are many diverse ways to frighten yourself silly if you want to. But it also offers up some stunning scenery, The Remarkable Mountains, Lake Wakitipu,(third largest in NZ), Dart, Shotover and Kawarau Rivers. Nearby the Gibbston Valley offers the most southerly wine growing region in the world with many wineries offering tastings.
If you want to read something that gives a good flavour of the country try "A Land of Two Halves: An Accidental Tour of New Zealand" by Joe Bennett. Written originally as a series of newspaper columns, its a good read as well as a voyage of discovery from someone who lives in the country he is describing.

This is a very disappointing book,I downloaded it to my Kindle and within two hours I had finished it.

It lacks content, it reminded me of those essays we used to do at school 'What I did on my holidays'

I purchased it as I am planning a trip to New Zealand in a campervan, it was of no help whatsoever.

While not a guide book in the traditional sense you get some great suggestions and ideas of places to visit on both north and south islands. Look at more as a very well written "What I did on my holidays" story and you'll be treated to a wee gem of a tale.

Bought this book because we are planning a similar trip and I hoped to get a lots of insider information.Did learn a number of useful facts, but the whole thing read like diary jottings linked together. Was irritated by his limited punctuation skills. Was a pretty boring read and I wouldn't have bothered if I hadn't been looking for information,which was also limited. Sorry Pete - don't give up the day job.

I read a lot of travel books and this was the first one I d come across covering New Zealand. Its not meant to be a guide book.. just an account of the authors travels around New Zealand. Its quite descriptive in places and I did enjoy it. I dont know how they dared to run the petrol so low in the van sometimes... I d have been worried sick about getting stranded,They covered a great deal of both Islands and I will be looking out for any other books by this author.

Having travelled around New Zealand several times, once in a camper van; this book brought back many happy memories for me. To me, New Zealand isn't just about the main tourist attractions, it's more about the wilderness and wildlife in between and the quirky and humorous things you come across. This book captures the remoteness and funny side of New Zealand and I loved it.

31 Days in a Campervan is more like a story than a guidebook and the easy to read narrative gives a real sense of being on the road and travelling through the country as well as giving a good idea of what living in a camper van for a month or so is like. Highly recommended. The route followed in the book seems to get to most of the interesting places too.

I've not been to NZ but after reading this it is back on my shortlist of places to go.
