Treliw
I have a lot of welsh friends who have been to Patagonia and stayed in Trelew . Would love to go - at least my lack of Spanish but my knowledge of Welsh would come in handy. Interesting that many things are unrepaired due to lack of money . Sounds like Greece . x

Christ the Redemer
Interesting that you said the statue was small . I remember going to Lisbon in 1966 and seeing the Statue of Christ the Redeemer Lisbon style and thinking how big it looked from the distance . Been again a few years ago and was still impressed . all looks very different and amazing though . x

places shut
Ha Ha - the same problem as we had - places firmly shut . Interesting to read your trip to Vienna . I went on a bus trip with my first hubby and Vienna was on the visit list . Saw a fantastic exhibition of Bruegel paintings . Oddly we went to Venice one year and saw a Klimt exhibition . We do find some odd things to see . Glenn was laughing at your description of the underground caves of Drach . He went with his first wife years ago and went to the caves . He said it was the most crass thing he ever saw when the orchestra floated out , You have brought back memories x

Glad you enjoyed blog! Drach Caves had to be done!!! lol! Caen is always busy - I think its something to do with being a Port as well - and if you were there the same time as the Brittany Ferries boat got in, its usually chaos!!! Still, you did ok!! Guess you are back home now so I'll just wish you both a Happy New Year!! Happy travelling!! x

stunning lanscape!
Loved the photo of the Grand Tetons! I usually travel on my bicycle; would I be allowed to entre the park on my bike? I suppose there are campsites too. Keep on enjoying and thank you for sharing!

Just like a western film
Love this scenery! Just like a Western film that I used to watch as a kid. I love it! Have you seen any cowboys? Indians? Roadrunner?

Saw a roadrunner in a carpark! Lots of people wear cowboy hats and loads of Navajo Indians about!!

Oamaru
We are doing the reverse of your trip. Dunedin to Oamaru to Twizel and now heading for Christchurch. We did the Hooker Glacier walk in sweltering weather. Amazing to see mini ice bergs in the lake at the top. Loved Oamaru town. Could have stayed there longer!

No dolphins!
Ignore that last comment which was sent prematurely! We too had an awesome day at Milford Sound. It alas no dolphins or penguins. Spring is obviously the best season to see them. We did however see lots of fur seals for the third time! The weather was wet on approaching Milford Sound but dry when we set off. Lots of atmospheric cloud around and plenty of waterfalls. It was too wet for the long walk. It we enjoyed a couple of short nature walk including Lake Gunn. Learned lots about the plant life. Also enjoyed the keas at the start of the tunnel.

Great photos!
We are doing Milford Sound tomorrow so hope we get to see dolphins! The weather has been baking so far but it's meant to be cooler tomorrow. Apparently it's awesome under any weather! I see you got lots of stunning reflective shots also. What an awesome place this is!

Ah, Berlin
We really fell in love with Berlin. Once we retire we plan on going back and renting a place for a couple of months. What a great city. Thanks for the memories.

Some more questions
Thanks for the answer and your offer; yes, I have some more questions: 1. Currency; should we get some small amount of local currency or which is more exepted Euro or US Dollars ? 2. Clothes at night; so there is no Gala nights, but there are some nights with a recommendation "elegant", are there any other special nights (like Italian, White night and so on) 3. any other tipps, you would have liked to know before you left on this cruise ?

Answers!
ok.....Israel we used $ but there is a machine along the beachfront that converts your dollars to local currency which you will need for boat trips etc. Jordan we didnt use any money, Seychelles took euros as did Reunion. Madagascar took euros and dollars ( I think we paid the tuk tuk in dollars) and Mauritius we took some cash out at ATM. There was an Italian night and a White Night but I would say that only 50% max dressed up for them - it was all no big deal. Hope this helps.
