Milford Sound

The steep-sided cliffs of a fjord mark the entrance to Milford Sound on the West Coast of New Zealand. Standing at the railing on Silver Spirit’s Deck 9, Alan and I marvel as the scenery unfolds in a vertical landscape that undulates in a wave of rugged mountains.

Taking the Circle Tour in Papeete

March 4, 2015
The tropical view from Papeete, Tahiti

We should have listened when our travel advisor warned us about bus excursions in tropical climates like the South Pacific. She was right.
