After a year in locum tenens assignments in New Zealand—hers in family medicine in Otautau, his in psychiatry in Invercargill—Kimball Chen and Amy Mullen have scoped out the highlights of what they call the sweetest place on the planet. From the best half-day hike to optimal weather conditions for a helicopter glacier tour to glow-worms dangling from the walls of a cave, they have made the most of their work and play time. And through the glory that is Google, they have created a detailed map with photos, directions, commentary, and unbridled enthusiasm that is sure to increase tourism in the south island. Ha! Be careful what you wish for, for you may get it!
After a quick vacation (vacation?) they have returned to work another year in their respective assignments. Click here to view their map and share the adventure.
