laurenepbath This is me, expertly maneuvering my horse down the trail with my camera under
my chin, leaning back and riding one handed. Haha. My horse was probably the
tamest guy around so it wasn’t really as impressive as it sounds. I want to take the opportunity to wish everyone a very merry Christmas for today! I've been really missing using Instagram as regularly as I usually do but my internet has been almost non existent. (I've tried to upload this shot a dozen times already, lol!) I can't wait for the new year and new adventures! Xxx @RoyalCaribbean_AuNz

laurenepbath I can’t not share another Hobbiton shot, this place is ADORABLE! I really want to come back, whether on another RC cruise or any other way. OMG – someone should design a Hobbiton cruise ship, the rooms kind of feel like cozy hobbit holes in a way. Haha. @RoyalCaribbean_AuNz #RoyalCaribbeanTime 2d

laurenepbath OMG, he’s sweeeeeeepy. I love seals, they’re so fat and lazy – they live how I wish I lived. Just chilling, eating, sleeping, swimming. Lol. They even get to chill out in both New Zealand and Australia, perfect really! @RoyalCaribbean_AuNz

laurenepbath I’m sharing this photo because I like it. Since my Royal Caribbean cruise was officially a holiday I was kind of just taking tourist snaps and on this particular day the rain was non-stop. Rain is very tricky to shoot in, you need lens hoods, camera raincoats, and umbrellas and even then it’s kind of demotivating. But I loved this little raindrop caught about to fall. And I loved getting back to the ship for one of my signature four-hour holiday “naps”. Haha. @RoyalCaribbean_AuNz

laurenepbath OMG! I went to Wellington, that’s where Peter Jackson lives! (Told you I’m a Lord of the Rings nerd!) I did a LOTR shore excursion and we visited Mount Victoria where a lot of scenes for the Fellowship of the Ring were filmed. You can’t see it
from this perspective but my ship was parked down there looking a lot smaller than it really is! @RoyalCaribbean_AuNz #RoyalCaribbeanTime

laurenepbath As much as I loved my RC ship I took way more photos offshore. It was challenging photography for me because we were always cruising around sunrise and sunset when I’m usually shooting. Even on holidays I’m hard on myself. On the cloudier days the light was soft enough to get some really pretty shots, like here in Napier and also in Hobbiton! @RoyalCaribbean_AuNz

laurenepbath You probably wouldn’t believe it if I told you but I saw seals about half an hour from Wellington city! This is why I chose to cruise to New Zealand, the place is insane! This is a New Zealand fur seal, a breed I’ve previously photographed in Tasmania. Apparently the young males like to cruise over to Australia to get up to no good in their youth before settling back down in NZ! @RoyalCaribbean_AuNz #RoyalCaribbeanTime 4d

laurenepbath This is a horse. I did not photograph this horse on Royal Caribbean. Lol. Another
shore excursion, this time to the New Zealand town of Napier where I had a lovely horse ride. They looked at me puzzled when I jumped up with a dslr camera around my neck and asked if I had ever photographed from horseback before. Pftt, “just like every time”, I said. Haha. I feel like I’d love to start riding again, even without a camera. I love horses! @RoyalCaribbean_AuNz #RoyalCaribbeanTime

laurenepbath Here she is! This is the ship I just spent nearly two weeks on! I never knew if I was a cruise person before this but I actually really liked it. I slept like a baby, which I really needed after all the traveling I’ve done this year. I also went ice-skating on a ship, yep there’s an ice skating rink on board (Good practice for my next Canadian winter!) and read four books from cover to cover. Oh, and did I mention that I took this photo from the “Bridge”; I was personally invited by the Staff Captain. @RoyalCaribbean_AuNz #RoyalCaribbeanTime 5d

laurenepbath For those that guessed Middle Earth, you’re close! Haha. I’ve been cruising in
New Zealand and actually visited the Hobbiton movie set in Tauranga on a Royal
Caribbean shore excursion. Despite the relentless rain I found Hobbiton one of
the cutest places I’ve ever been. I’m such a Lord of the Rings nerd! @RoyalCaribbean_AuNz #RoyalCaribbeanTime

laurenepbath I’m back! For those that pay attention I’ve just had nearly two weeks off Instagram due to being on a cruise holiday with limited Wi-Fi. I’ve been on Royal Caribbean’s “Voyager of the Seas” for the first trip after their 80 million dollar refurbishment! Can anybody guess from this photo where I cruised?

laurenepbath Alright guys - my last Dubai post (for now!) I just want to let you all know that for the next 12 days I'll be off cruising with little Internet. I'll miss you and promise to come online with great holiday snaps every time I have reliable wifi! @MyDubai #MyDubai 2w

laurenepbath These are the untouched sand dunes of the Al Maha Desert resort and spa. I think we all went a little nuts here, stalking each other through the dunes. The desert in Dubai was much more than I could have expected! @MyDubai #MyDubai 2w

laurenepbath I finally got some more shots edited this afternoon, geez my jet lag has been bad the past few days. You would think that I would get used to it right?! So anyway, these are flamingo's because everybody knows there are wild flamingos in Dubai. Right? @MyDubai #MyDubai 2w

laurenepbath I'm still not done with Dubai?! How strange does the skyline look with the Burj Khalifa towering over everything else?! Crazy to think that I was almost at the top! @MyDubai #MyDubai 2w

laurenepbath This man ! Probably the most graceful man I've ever seen. We made him jump, leap and prance through the desert for half an hour. So worth it! Thanks @maximecoquard ! @MyDubai #MyDubai 3w
