A beautiful island nation, Fiji is located in the South Pacific; roughly North of New Zealand and East Northeast of Australia. If you are flying, it is about 1,330.2 miles from Auckland, New Zealand or about 1,962.3 miles from Sydney, Australia. In 2004, I had the opportunity to visit Fiji for a few days, here are some photos from that trip.
This trip only covered the Southeast Alaska section of the ferry system which travels Alaska's Inside Passage, this is the same section covered by the majority of the cruise ships. Since the bulk of the trip is on small protected bodies of water, even those who are prone to seasickness should enjoy this route. If you want to make this trip yourself, there are links on this page to get you started.
Here are a few Space Shuttle pictures that I have taken. The first Space Shuttle launched in 1981 and the final flight was in 2011, a thirty year span. I was able to see and photograph five of the later launches and my pictures can be seen here.
