This blog on New Caledonia is for those of you who ever wondered what life on a tiny island in the South Pacific might be like. Tired of bracing winter winds, the stress of an inner city or simply dreaming of a life change? This is a blog about what happens when, in the words of Yogi Berra, "you come to a fork in the road, [and] take it".

New Zealand: From the North Island to the South Island

Photo by Laurent Guiader, 2007.

One of the highlights of our recent trip to New Zealand was a ferry ride from Wellington (on the North Island) to Picton (on the South Island, pictured above). My friend Melissa tells the tale beautifully and provides a host of pictures of the views on her blog at "Petit Sojourn". Suffice it to say the views truly were breathtaking.

In addition, the 3.5-hour journey flew by what with all the entertainment provided onboard. Pablo enjoyed himself immensely, Sophie and I successfully avoided seasickness, Laurent and Melissa went out on deck to take in the views of towering mountains and deep blue waters.

Of all the travel we did on our trip, I think this (Interislander) ferry was our most pleasurable - we heartily recommend it!
