It's been a long crossing filled with somewhat bumpy seas, some stupidly humid ports, and now I'm on the other side of the planet (tm). With a little over a month left to go on this ship I've finally gotten to visit somewhere I've never been - New Zealand. Having only been into one port here so far it's hard to come up with any sort of opinion but my first impressions are pretty good and I'm certainly looking forward to seeing some more of this place.
Although I did say I've only been to one port so far we technically saw New Zealand yesterday as well while sailing through Milford, Doubtful and Dusky Sounds. Very beautiful places if a little cloudy. I felt like we should have sailed around a corner and straight into Rivendell.
