New Zealand


Greetings from New Zealand

This gallery and blog chronicles my journey from America to New Zealand and my preparation for heading down to Antarctica.

Warm Weather, to Me at Least

Antarctica is behind me and I am now in Christchurch, New Zealand. In this blog I spend some time in Christchurch and the surrounding areas and then I head up the coast to Kaikoura for some whale watching.

Rainforest Caves in the Land of Pounamu

In this blog I travel to the West coast of the South Island of New Zealand where I go tubing in a cave filled with glowworms and I learn to carve jade.

Glaciers Again?

This blog follows my journey along the west coast of New Zealand's south island. In this installment I do a lot of hiking around Franz Josef glacier and I visit A Puzzling World in Wanaka.

Fjordland Cruising

This blog is about my journey to Milford Sound and a wonderful cruise on the MS Friendship in the fjord.
