  1. The community was awesome the first time we cruised. We picked up so much on CC from both direct questions and the search feature. It's been one of the most useful resources for us for sure 🙂
  2. That sounds like a nightmare, especially if they haven't even left the country! We'll be doing our trip with a 7 and 10 year old kid and had plans of visiting the Melbourne zoo on the way across (reciprocal membership rights with Adelaide finally being put to good use 🙂).

Having a serious look at the 100-400mm L lens now 🙂
  9. I am (well was) a pretty serious photographer prior to having kids (8 years back) and have exhibited across the world at various international exhibitions (achieved my AFIAP). We’re booked up for a great New Zealand cruise in 2023 which goes through the Fjoords, assuming the weather is A OK on the day. I want to maximise that photographic opportunity. I haven’t purchased any new pieces of kit for 10 years now, but all my weddings money went towards gear, so I have a pretty neat collection still (Canon 5D, 7D and various L series lenses).
