My husband and I are in Sydney, Australia, as part of a great trip to Tokyo, Australia, and New Zealand. We should have left for Auckland this morning, but the weather changed dramatically on the North Island of New Zealand. We noticed the following scenes in Auckland on tv the night before we were to leave. I first started to worry when earlier that day, a kayak trip in Cathedral Cove was canceled for 1/30. Then at dinner, we were next to a woman from Auckland, and she mentioned that the weather was horrible there, as were the roads. What do you do when vacation plans change?

Yep, even for us experienced travel hackers, weather (and other life situations) can happen, and we have to figure out what to do when vacation plans change rapidly. I spent several hours working this all out, but it turned out fine. We will miss the sites of the North Island of New Zealand but battling extreme weather conditions was not how I wanted to see them. We loved Sydney and want to return, so we will add the North Island of New Zealand to that trip.
