7 Things To Do at Ocean Park Hong Kong

A single day in Hong Kong is a sensory-busting experience. Get an early start at the massive Ocean Park — Hong Kong’s answer to SeaWorld, but much more animal-friendly (they don’t have Orcas). Hop on the clean and efficient metro system (MTR) and within minutes you can be there. Upon entering Ocean Park, pause to snap a few…

Skyline Rotorua, New Zealand

These images come from the New Zealand archive. Skyline Rotorua was a stop on our 9-day Campervan Mystery Tour across North and South Islands.

The river meanders in the typical volcanic hills and tall sword grass found throughout the south.

This set is from the small seaside town of Hokitika, a pitstop on our southerly journey to Franz Josef glacier all the way from Auckland in North Island. Here you finally see the campervan that was our home (and sometimes our burden) in the 9-day road trip.
