Day 48 - "Epic" New Zealand Adventure 2022

West Coast New Zealand

While staying in Queenstown, Connie, Bob and Joyce took another wine and beer tasting tour. They visited 3 wineries and sampled over 12+ wines (and some beer).

Day 45 - "Epic" New Zealand Adventure 2022

Building in Dunedin, New Zealand

Onboard the Majestic Princess Cruise Ship

Although we're on the 13th day of our "epic" 57-day adventure, we got a few days head start, Bob and Joyce, our travel friends from Florida, arrived at our home in Arizona 5 days before we embarked on this trip. While Connie and I have slowed down on our US travels, they continue to travel in their motorhome 6-8 months a year. For this trip, they set a snail's pace rushing from Florida to Ari...
