Gidday all. Finally back on deck after our cruise to NZ and 3 day visit to Sydney. I have no idea on what days the rain fell but my Nylex had 139mm from this event.

So I picked up Flu type A 5 days before the cruise finished and spent 3 days in bed so missed out on a couple of excursions. (I also got Carpal Tunnel syndrome in my right and from over using my cane on board and while walking and rolled my ankle at Taronga Park Zoo, slipped on the steps of the Opera House and threatened to murder the next bloody Asian with a selfie stick that hit me in the head with it).

The excursions I did get to go on where pretty good although spending 3 bloody hours on a bus to get to Christchurch was a bit much. Milford Sound was everything I expected. Got to the entrance just on dawn. Still had snow on the lower cliffs and bitterly cold. -2C at sunrise according to the ships automated weather app. Very quiet, strong breeze made it bloody uncomfortable but I won't probably get another chance so stuck with it until I turned blue.

NZ was brilliant. Loved the rain, freezing cold, the greenness and people. The cruise was good but would I do it again? Nah. Too rushed to get from one port to another 1. We are planning to go back and do at least 1 more trip to NZ. Fly drive for about 2 weeks on both islands would be ideal.
