G'day! Bonjour! Bulla!
I'm back from cruising around the South Pacific and Fiji! The three different greetings above were used at different ports of call and were used a LOT. What a wonderful experience I had with my 5 travelling companions. Would you like to see some photos? I will try and stick to my absolute favourites so this post doesn't get too photo heavy.
Day 1 - Sydney Harbour
After flying to Sydney from Brisbane, I was picked up at the airport in a private vehicle. Four of my travelling companions were already in the car and we were to meet up with one more lady at the cruise terminal.

First port of Call - Noumea, New Caledonia
New Caledonia is a French Territory hence the Bonjour at the beginning of my post as French is the predominant language. The currency is the Pacific Franc.

Lifou, Loyalty Islands

I hope I haven't bored you to tears!
Now, as my title suggests there may be some confessions. Hmmm, not really. I can think of one off the top of my head. My sister and I started drinking alcohol at 10am on one of the sea days. Naughty!!!
Until the next installment.... See ya xx
