I'll be invading Australia and New Zealand in a year if all goes according to plan. The wife and I are taking a cruise that starts in Auckland and ends in Sydney.

Heck! I thought you were talking about the Chinese.

I was about to bunker down and prepare for a siege.

It's our second time there but we missed the South Island the first time. We start in AKL, and hit Tauranga, Gisborne, Wellington, Dunedin, Christchurch, cruise Dusky, Doubtful and Milford Sounds and then do Melbourne, Burnie and Eden. We end up in Sydney. We'll be in AKL a few days early and will have an overnight in SYD.

Honest question from an ignorant Yank. In the US we think we see a correlation between education (some would call it an immersion program for socialism) and a labour/social democrat political view. So, here in the US, between people who vote for free stuff and the educated (maybe indoctrinated)...it appears we, conservatives by any other name, have lost the battle. 34% have college degrees here...29% and rising rapidly in NZ and OZ...are you losing the battle too?
Edit...oops, should have been under disappointed in NZ thread.

Well this is a fine pickle we're in, should'a listened to Joe McCarthy and George Orwell I guess.

Ain’t that the truth brother!

Wyoming elk is on hold for another year.

Well, UP Hiker, I hope you enjoy your trip, and come back again. We have a big lump of an island here, and there's no lack of things to explore. Think in terms of an island roughly the size of the continental USA but with only 25 million people.

We'll be mostly in Sydney, Melbourne and Tasmania. I'd like to see Ayres Rock, but it's so far in the middle of nowhere.

Really enjoyed Ayers Rock and Alice Springs. About a 3 hour flight from Melbourne.
Sydney and Melbourne are just cities.

"just cities"...well okay, but I wouldn't rate them that high.
