Looking for InspirationMy boyfriend and I have two months off in June and July next year. We have travelled a bit before to South America. Southeast Asia and China. Both love being outdoors and trying new things. Can anyone suggest what they would do with 2 months at that time of year? Ideas and inspiration much appreciated!

1You post this in the Aust/NZ branch so I assume you want ideas in these countries?
June/July are winter months so if you like wintersports - Queenstown in NZ south island is a great place to be for skiing (and its variants), plus other adventure sports; you can ski in Oz but its expensive.
You can head to QLD and its islands if you like warmer weather or you can join/drive a 4WD tagalong trip into central Australia.
I'm sure other ppl will chime in soon.

2I'd be snowboarding in New Zealand. I doubt I could afford 2 months of it though apart from in my dreams.

3I'm just back from Greece, Turkey and Egypt. Great countries - would go back to all/any of them in a heartbeat. And June-July wouldn't be as hot as when I was there. Canada is on my 'to do' list one year. Perhaps you could go first and let me know the best places ;-)
There's good skiing in the North Island of NZ too - there are two skifields at Ruapehu. It will be cold in NZ at that time of year but some great scenery in the South Island especially.

4As you have posted this in the Aus/NZ section...
As a previous poster noted it will be winter in souther Aus, but this is the best time (dry season) to visit northern Australia - think cairns, NT etc. Also the winters here are relatively mild compared to many countries so you can still happily visit the southern states.
it's a big country so plenty to do for a couple of months, and although I'm no expert on NZ..it's going to be colder, but you could combine the two - I'm sure one of our Kiwi friends can elaborate more on what's available.
