    Aspen Lodge in Queenstown has all you want. Great staff that always help you with your questions. Its a friendy and cosy place close to Fesh Choise supermarket and it takes just 3 minutes to walk to the town centreYou will for sure find some funny people to hang around with. I had my best week ever at Aspen Lodge when I stayed there in february 2012. Staying in the 8 bed room with ensuit bathroom was the best room.

    enjoyed my stay there welcoming staff and good place to hang out. Good distance from town centre not too close so disturbed by noise but close enough to nip to go to a bar or shop.

    So the last blog entry we posted was about buying a car in New Zealand. As I write this post, we are flying 33,000ft above sea level on our way to Melbourne, Australia. I suppose that means we're not doing very good at keeping this blog updated. In our defence, it was actually quite hard trying to write while constantly on the road and also trying …

    ... along the length of the South island to reach a busy city. I make a quick phone call to the YHA at Mt. Cook which is about an hour east of Lake Pukaki and book myself in for one night there.

    As I drive north-east along the Lake towards Mt Cook town, I can feel the mountains and the lake forming a beautiful silhouette that one can see in any picture postcard. But I can't see it as it's past sun down and obviously quite dark.

    I arrive at Mt Cook ...

    ... I thought about doing it, but we are glad we did not. Both hostels we have stayed at so far had the Kiwi Bus stop there for the night too, and thirty to forty young, mostly English and German, backpackers shared the hostel with us and we found them to be loud, immature, and a bit obnoxious. No offense to English and Germans though; we’ve met plenty of cool English and German people, it’s just I think that form of traveling is not our thing.

    ... as we were all missing this from home! The population around these parts is very low and we got a few laughs when we asked if we needed bike locks or whether we could park our van safely in the pub car park whilst we cycled - they hadn't had a bike stolen in 10 years!!

    As we had only spent 1 day there, we felt as though Queenstown deserved a bit more of our time, so made the short journey from Alexandra, stopping first in Arrowtown. A really quaint place this ...
