Tour to Dunedin before boarding the Spirit of Enderby ship for the New Zealand cruise
22-23 November 2007
From Queenstown I reach Dunedin by bus in about five hours. After a short city tour of Dunedin, I board the Spirit of Enderby, a russian cruise ship carrying 48 passengers, that is about to sail south to the sub-antarctic islands of New Zealand and Australia for the next 13 days.
There are many cathedrals in Dunedin, here the First Church of Otago.

From Otago, I board the Spirit of Enderby, a russian expedition ship, particularly suitable to explore the Arctic and the Antarctica. This ship will be my home for the next 13 days, exploring the sub-antarcic islands of New Zealand and Australia.
The ship leaves Otago and Dunedin.
