This week has been BUSY! I've actually had a lot going on at work instead of my usual low-grade boredom, and we haven't even had time to accomplish our goal of getting our wedding thank you's done... tonight might not work either cause I need to be packing for our HONEYMOON! I'm so excited we are leaving on Saturday morning to Sydney, Australia and hopping on a cruise ship for TWO WHOLE GLORIOUS BLISSFUL WEEKS!!! It's going to fly by so fast.
Here is our itinerary:
Phillip Island, Australia
Milford Sound, New Zealand
Dunedin, New Zealand
Christchurch, New Zealand
Wellington, New Zealand
Volcanic White Island, N.Z.
Tauranga, New Zealand
Auckland, New Zealand
We are trying to figure out what to do in each port call since we're only in port for the day each time we will barely have enough time to see a few things! There are a TON of shore excursions including kayaking, biking, train rides through the New Zealand Alps, city tours, wine tastings and more. Not to mention everything there is to do on the ship - can you say SPA-AHHH!
I will have a ton of pics when we get back!
Also, we are not going to Germany. Yes it is sad but I am at peace with it and I feel like it's the right thing. I feel like it is the "sign" we were waiting for... the detailer offered us AFRICOM and after talking to the guy Adam would be replacing we decided no, not for us! 12 hour days and sub-optimal housing and facilities. We could live with not the greatest living conditions IF the job was great... or we could live with a kind of crappy job IF the living conditions would be pretty cool... but both sounds like a bad assignment! So, as much as we both wanted to live in Europe, we also realize that we've barely had any time to enjoy the islands. And there is plenty of adventure left here. We want to travel to the big island and Kauai, and go to Japan, China and Thailand while we're here and relatively close.
So that is that. If I don't see y'all again before we depart, I'll catch ya on the flipside, after March 16! Think good thoughts for a successful vacation!
