After a cup of coffee to fortify myself I will now put the second batch of fotos on - these of my overnight stay at Manapouri Lake and next day trip to Doubtful Sound.
Doubtful Sound is named by James Cook ( who else??) who on seeing it was reluctant to take his ship in as he was "doubtful" he could sail it out again given the prevailing westerly winds....he was probably right.
Enjoy the fotos.
Keeping this travel blog enables me to reflect and record my journeys as well as communicate with my family and friends.
I shouldn't be amazed me that complete strangers in this travel community will want to read about what I am up to as they are a great bunch of folk.
I have swapped my home and hospitality for many years now and always I have met such wonderful open, generous and friendly people. Travelling alone lots of the time I am never lonely ..there is always the travelblog to keep me company.
Planning for future trips and onwards now. Don't let the grass grow under you feet.
