Legacy Genealogy Cruise 2010 - we're back

Our 7th annual Legacy Genealogy Cruise has concluded. We all had the time of our lives. I'm now trying to recover from a couple of new syndromes I picked up: 1) a severe case of desynchronosis (jet lag), 2) an even more serious case of I-sure-enjoyed-not-making-my-own-food-or-cleaning-up-after-myself, and 3) the "I ate too much good food and didn't exercise enough" syndrome. However, after 2 1/2 days of being home now, I have lost 7 pounds. It's not so hard going back to work though because I absolutely love what I do.

Whilst (a new word for me) in Australia and New Zealand, we saw kangaroos, kiwis, the Mauri Haka, waterfalls splashing into the sea, and even a few whales. My wife and I climbed Mt. Maunganui, toured the Cadburry Chocolate Factory (where I discovered new taste buds), explored the Gloworm caves, danced, read, slept, and have I mentioned - we ate lots of food?

While (I just can't get used to the word 'whilst') teaching classes and speaking with our Legacy cruisers (about 2/3 were from Australia and New Zealand) I learned that "I" was the one with the strong accent. And I loved hearing the Aussies welcome me with a "g'day mate". They really say that - I thought it was just something they said in the movies. Anyways, I grew to love the people in our group, especially those from "down under" - they are such a warm, friendly people. My favorite part of the entire cruise was the Legacy classes. We were able to add about 4 1/2 hours of additional instruction, including personal one-on-one sessions. Two of our cruisers, Jan Gow and Wayne Anderson, gave brilliant (another of my new favorite words) classes on various aspects of genealogy technology. My favorite class was Wayne's serendipity stories, which concluded with others in the group sharing their own serendipity experiences.

So...it is back to work for the Legacy development team. We have some great things planned for the near and not-so-near future. Happy Thanksgiving (my favorite holiday) to everyone in the U.S. this week. Below are just a few of the 249 pictures I took.

The Fiordlands had hundreds of waterfalls spilling into the sea. This was the most beautiful part of the trip.

If you look really closely, and with a little imagination, you can see the tip of the whale we saw during dinner. Good thing I got it on video - nobody believed me....

I guess I should conclude this article now. Our 8th annual Legacy Genealogy Cruise is just 10 months and 5 days away. We hope to see you next September as we cruise New England and eastern Canada.

Bon Voyage - Legacy Genealogy Cruise begins

Tomorrow we leave to begin our 7th annual Legacy Genealogy Cruise, this year to Australia and New Zealand. The cruise starts and ends in Sydney, Australia visits the following New Zealand ports: Fjordland National Park, Dunedin (Port Chalmers), Christchurch (Lyttelton), Wellington, Napier, Tauranga, Auckland, and Bay of Islands. We will sail on Princess Cruises Sun Princess ship. We've also got 13 fantastic hours of personal Legacy and genealogy instruction from five different instructors.

This paragraph is where I'm hoping to promise that I will publish daily articles about our trip like I did last year. Umm...I really want to...and I'm really glad I did last year...I'm still trying to talk myself into it...Let's see - dancing with my wife (alone - no kids!) on the Sun Princess or writing about the adventures of the Legacy classes....We'll see how it goes (just being honest here...).

Our sincere thanks go out to our entire technical support and sales staff who will continue to provide sales and support services while we are gone. Thanks Jim, Sherry, Brian, Ron, Tim, Sarah, Leonard and Haybron for keeping us going!

We'll either see you here or on the ship!
