im going to be in NZ and then heading over to Australia. I seriously dont like planes and the flight from Ireland to Auckland is really gonna take away alot of my nerve.
so does anyone have any ideas/links for an alternative way of getting from NZ to OZ?
i.e sailing, cruising, steerage etc.
The most likely one I am thinking of is by cargoship indeed.
Check this dutch based (but also in english) website for options.
Much more expensive though, so if you are able to hitch a ride on a yacht, try that.
The flight is only a couple of hours - so if you can brave Ireland to NZ you should be able to do this one!! - the airport bar usually helps lol. Unless of course you want to try something else for the experience - then agree with the above reply.
I think cargoship might be quite an interesting experience actually. My friend did it from the US to NZ and enjoyed it.
