This year we pushed the boat out, figuratively speaking, and spent nearly 7 weeks in New Zealand and French Polynesia. We kept a blog of the trip, but updates of the blogging software have since made that illegible. The blog text has therefore been converted to a write-up in three parts, below. The keen-eyed will note that the tense (blog in the present, write-up in the past) is not always consistent!
A selection of the photographs we took can be found in the following galleries. Right-click on an open image for the full-size version.
