Unlock The Past Cruise
I’m a bit excited at the moment, because I’ve decided to go on the Unlock the Past History and Genealogy Cruise November 2011 This is a fourteen night cruise from Auckland to Sydney, with a number of port stops in New Zealand.
While cruising there are a series of conferences on many and varied topics, with a Scottish and Irish theme. I’m especially interested in this, as these two areas of research are my weaknesses. I have much to learn and what better way to do it, than by cruising the Ocean. I’m really looking forward to soaking up all the information I can. And the opportunity to meet others with the same interest is just too good to pass up.
The ports of call after leaving Auckland are – Tauranga, Napier, Wellington, Picton, Akaroa, and Port Chalmers. Most of the stops are all day, so I’m planning on using the time to indulge myself in physical activities, such as walking, trailwalking and bike riding. I want to see as much of the New Zealand outdoors as I can.
This will be the first two week holiday, I’ve taken in years. A great opportunity to combine my two loves – family history and fitness. Oh and eating of course. I hear there’s a lot of that happening on a cruise. Yum! Can’t wait!
