Japan - Tokyo

The famous diagonal crossing in the Shibuya district.

Dining out under the cherry blossom - an annual event.

Ah the products you can find to buy in Japan - it almost make you wonder if what you see is real...

...yep it's Barbie Tokyo Style all for sale in Kiddy Land...

...hmm freshly squeezed water?

...a cunning answer to sweaty pits...

...not so 'Like a Virgin' anymore with these condoms...

...and one for the 'Tarrant on TV' team (you know who you are!)



"But it's too cold to go in the water" - Celia's favourite saying as we travel Australia...

Built for speed (yeah right) down the dunes at Lancelin!

David and one of many pinnacles.

One of many (too many) pictures of the dolphins at Monkey Mia.

A bloke...

...and a Sheila.

Red Centre

On top of the world at Kings' Canyon.

Uluru at base level (no we didn't climb, our Karma is intact!).

THE only way to drink champagne - out of blue plastic beakers while the sun sets over Uluru.

Zipping up for the night under the stars. Celia worries that she might have to pee in the bush during the night!

The Olgas, our final destination in the red centre.

The Olgas - Valley of the Winds.

The East Coast

Sailing the Whitsundays Islands in style, on board the Independent Endeavour.

Cap'n Gookey at the helm, during sunset.

Our small, but perfectly formed crew!

From tigers to koalas, David keeps in touch with the local wildlife.

While Celia tries to get a Kangaroo interested in some food.

C & D in Sydney Harbour.

Close-up of the opera house.

Dusk settles over Sydney Harbour. 

New Zealand

Overlooking the Southern Alps before arriving in Christchurch, South Island.

The terminal face of the Franz Joseph glacier.

C by Lake Wanaka. It's a bit chilly!

Skiing near Queenstown - it's still a bit chilly!

Milford Sound - still beautiful even when the weather is not perfect.

Cruising Milford Sound.

Best not get too close to these wild sea lions on the Otago Peninsular.

The Moeraki Boulders on the East Coast of the South Island.

David points to the sky beacause he was told to by the guy who is going to take him skydiving over Lake Taupo.

Celia is still smiling despite being told that she's going to jump out of a perfectly good plane at 12,000 ft, then freefall for 45 seconds at over 200 km/h.

The final couple of hundred feet for David.

Piece of cake!

The 'Champagne Pool' at Wai-O-Tapu, near Rotorua in the North Island.

There she blows - the Lady Knox Geyser.
