There is no holiday complete without a mixture of cosmopolitan cities and picturesque beaches and this suggested itinerary is no different. Begin your holiday in Los Angeles, known as the City of Angels, where you can spend your time walking down Hollywood Boulevard admiring the stars on the Walk of Fame. Spend a day at Universal Studios, a place where thrill seekers can mix an adrenaline rush with interactive movie sets. Next stop on your trip is the quintessential paradise trip with 10 nights on the Cook Islands. With five nights on both Aitutaki and Rarotonga, your time can be spent relaxing by the white sand beaches, taking cruises around the magnificent lagoons, snorkelling around local corals with the abundance of marine life. Auckland is your next stop. Make sure to spending time wandering some of the many local markets, browsing the many stalls to find those perfect souvenirs to bring back home.  For nature lovers, take a trip out out to Waitakere Ranges, home to lush wilderness forests and walking trails range.
