New Zealand, January 2002
New Zealand was a great place to visit for three weeks
in January. We
did both the north and south island. Among other things, we sailed the Bay
of Islands, rode jet boats, swam, snorkelled, rafted, bungyed, did the high ropes course, luge rode,
hiked Fox Glacier, took a balloon ride, did a couple of overnight cruises
including one on Milford Sound, and generally touristed around. The photos
below should give you an idea of the trip. No climbing though.
Right: I take the plunge. Bungiiiiie! The
original AJ Hacket Bungy bridge Queenstown.
43 metre free fall. Your heart races, the water rushes towards you, but
the descent is surprisingly gentle. Check the
video clip (2 Meg, 25 seconds).
Left: I cling to the front of the raft as we
head down the rapids of the Shotover River, Queenstown. That's
Melissa in the back next to our guide. They were grade 3 to 4 rapids apparently.
