Frank and Joy Brussel recently made a trip to New Zealand, Tasmania and Australia. They boarded a ship in Aukland, NZ and visited many ports along the way—taking a train ride into the Southern Alps, visiting a kiwi fruit farm, getting acquainted with Maori customs and rituals, and of course, seeing lots of kangaroos, Tasmanian devils and koalas.
