... surrounded mostly by the alps. We arrived at “base” in the small quaint town of Glenorchy, where we geared up for our day. Everyone suited up in wetsuits (including booties), fleece, waterproof jackets, and life jackets. We jumped into small powerboats at the base of the dart river. These are called Jet boats because they are engineered to allow for access in very shallow narrow areas. They can turn on a dime and maneuver water only ...

The afternoon was set aside for Frisbee Golf. Yes there is a frisbee golf in the local park and the hostel provided ...
... blue hair does make me memorable. ;) She comes over to say hi, and we all end up going up to the bar to do "let's bond over shots of tequila" shots. It's bar language for "let's be friends!" Her name is Danielle, she goes by Dani, and her friend's name is Elli. They are Queenstown natives, and have been friends since high school. Both have left for college and work, but are temporarily back for the summer. Dani has only worked at Fergberger for the last ...
