The Craft Cruise ended in beautiful Auckland, New Zealand, where I stayed a few days to regain my land legs and transition back to real life.
I was most impressed by Sky City, which is New Zealand’s answer to Seattle’s Space Needle, located right the middle of downtown.
It’s even more impressive close up. I got a neck ache looking up so high to take this photo.
For out final dinner, we ate in a restaurant on the 53rd floor to watch the sun set and lights go on across the city. But first we stopped on the observation deck, which had glass panels in the floors. I don’t recommend it if you’re afraid of heights.
What’s most amazing is that people pay $280 to free fall from the 54th floor, secured only by what I hope are very strong cables and some sort of break system at the end.
I wonder if this guy’s mother knows what did.
The view from our table was breathtaking.
And the food was spectacular!
