From Palpatine to Voyager

Meet our “new” Spaceship (and home for the next two weeks):

Spaceships campervan: Voyager
Spaceship Voyager

Whereas Palpatine was a brand new “Beta”-model Spaceship with only 46,000 kilometers, Voyager is one of their original (and well-traveled) “Alpha”-models—with 314,000 kilometers! We knew what we were getting, but it did take some adjusting to. Surprisingly it’s actually a little more spacious inside, but the size of the fridge does leave something to be desired.

We treated ourselves to a hotel Friday night in Christchurch, and started heading towards Queenstown on Saturday afternoon. We decided to stop at the Top 10 Holiday Park in Fairlie, which outside of having an impressive herb garden and excellent facilities for such a small location, also had unusually fast and free wireless internet.
