It was my second visit to L.A. but it was the first time Nicki was introduced to this sprawling metropolis, city within cities, it is a huge place.

Hello everybody! Two days we've spent already here in this world class city and yes, Hong Kong is not only the metropolis of skyscrapers, tramways, the star ferry and where East collides with West, Hong Kong is an experience.

Snorkelling in Rarotonga

Kia orana again. Rarotonga is a divers and snorkeller's paradise, it seems. Of course, we are not talking about the Great Barrier or the Red Sea, and as we are no divers (planned for later this year Egypt), we certainly enjoyed the colourful marine life of the inner lagoon. We went snorkelling about...

Kia orana family and friends... We landed this morning (3 May) after a very smooth four hour flight back from Paradise: Rarotonga, the main island of the Cook Islands.

The Far North

It's actually quite a drive from Auckland to the Far North, Bay of Islands and the Kauri coast, but we made very interesting stops enroute. First we went to Waipu, a village mainly settled by Scots from the Highland that moved via Nova Scotia to New Zealand. We visited the house of Memories in Waipu...

There was even a snorkelling trail down Clarke Island, but this was closed due to gusty winds and rough sea, although nice sunny. This stop is mainly a camping stop enroute t...
