I have, however, managed to pack the alcohol. priorities.
The plastic containers you see in the picture are called Rum Runners. They come highly recommended from regular cruise travelers as a way to sneak alcohol on the ship. So we got ourselves a set and filled them with rum, vodka, wine, and my favorite, fireball whiskey. Hopefully we can get them on and save ourselves some money. :)
Then we will start making port visits to some great cities: Dunedin, Akaroa, Wellington, Napier (where we plan to wine taste), Tauranga (where we will bungy jump!), Auckland, and Bay of Islands (diving? jet skis?).
Here is a picture of our bungy jump:
ahhhhh....excited and scared for this!
After a few more days at sea we will be back on land in Sydney. That same day we will be heading to Cairns for a few days to see the Great Barrier Reef. We plan on diving at 3 different locations on the first day, then taking a helicopter tour to see the reef from above on our second day. And in between all this crazy adventure fun there will be a lot of beach time and shopping and relaxing!
And of course we will miss all of you, especially Harley, but we have been dreaming of this trip for years. We have so many things that we are going to cross off our bucket list by going on this trip: bungy jumping, helicopter ride, scuba diving the reef, etc. It is our trip of a lifetime and I don't know if we will be able to do anything like this again, so we gotta enjoy it while we can! Before the baby Clutes take all our time and money. :)
So obviously I will not be blogging while I am away. But, if you are interested, I will definitely do some recaps when I get back, with tons of fabulous pictures!
p.s. a big thank you to my Mama who is watching Mr H for us! Love you!!
