At the beginning of the trip, we flew to LA and spent the day there, exploring Warner Brothers Studios and Santa Monica. The weather was lovely and the pier was lively.
I've posted many pictures of Singapore before. This time, we explored somewhere I had not visited in a while--Little India. There were an abundance of gold jewelry shops, beautiful silks and embroidered fabrics and smells of incense and jasmine.
On to Auckland, where the Sky Tower is in view just about anywhere you go in the city
View of the harbor from our hotel room
We went on a geothermal walk exploring Craters of the Moon (we've got some great video of the mud pools and sulphurous steam pouring out of the earth)
We also visited Huka Falls--the water was the clearest blue I've ever seen
On our way home, the view from the Qantas lounge with the city of Sydney in the background
And my super luxurious seat on the plane--an Airbus 380!
