Finally a computer, we think, that we can upload some pics. Milford Sound was nice but not one of the wonders of the world. Today is a free day in Q-town. Off to the glaciers tomorrow. Happy New Year (it is for us).

We're in Queenstown, NZ now. Heading out to the '8th wonder of the world' - Milford Sound - to see the glaciers, etc. on a river cruise. Weather has been very good though overcast. Today should be sunny. Still can't attach pics so you'll have to wait - we have a ton.

Thursday, 20 December 2007

Location: Australia

Yesterday, the 19th, did the wildlife museum tour to get an idea of what to expect in the outback. It was cool. Some pics are attached. We took a tour of the city - saw the opera house, harbour bridge, great views of the harbour and city, and famous Bondi beach, which wasn't that big of a deal. Today we walked around the city and shopped. Tomorrow is wine country then we're off to the outback. Stay tuned!


Tuesday, 18 December 2007

Location: Sydney (currently), Australia

Long plane ride in - about 14 hours from LA but we made it. A pic from the plane tells the story.

First day was mostly jet lag. We're at Darling Harbour. Had a beer and a glass of wine and some 'pies' for dinner. Good time was had.

Tuesday here went to Blue Mountain for a tour, pics attached, ok time but was a must see. Stay tuned for more. More tours tomorrow afternoon.
