Long Live Travel

COVID = no travel.

All of our hotel and airline rewards have taken a beating this year while we've all experienced degrees of being grounded due to COVID-19.

I personally made 3 attempts this year to take a vacation before I succeeded!

Miriam and I finally got to visit Fiordland - one of the most dramatic and beautiful parts of New Zealand. Fiordland National Park is a World Heritage Site and includes Milford, Dusky and Doubtful Sounds. Milford Sound was described by Rudyard Kipling as the Eighth Wonder of the World; take a look at the photos of my visit and you will understand why.
