Destination Queenstown

A travel blog entry by daisyymaisyy


I've really got to write more of these blogs. I've done so much since we left Wellington on that ferry, I can barely remember it all. Nevertheless I'll do my best ... We arrived in Picton to a rather grumpy bus driver named Q, but we were in such a funny mood we just humoured him and he soon loosened up, making the odd amusing joke on the drive …

Cruising down the slopes at Coronet

A travel blog entry by travel.bug.


The excitement of the first day up the mountain overtook the shadiness hanging over us from the prior nights antics.
After packing up all our gear we were out in the morning mist, stopping off at several take-away branches in the aim to find a quick breakfast on our way through to the Ski Centre. Once loaded up on one of the early morning …

YAYYYY I'M FINALLY IN QUEENSTOWN WHERE WE HOPE TO LIVE AND WORK FOR THE WINTER SEASON. I'M SO EXCITED RIGHT NOW. I'M DOING A LITTLE VICTORY DANCE IN MY BED. CAN YOU TELL HOW HYPER I AM AS I'M WRITING IN CAPITALS? Ok I'll remain calm whilst I recall the rest of my travels. So last night we were quite hyper and were singing Pitch Perfect songs until …

We all woke up pretty early for the drive from Franz Josef to Queenstown. It was quite a wet and rainy day and roads around these parts often close due to landslides and heavy rain. On our way down the west coast we even encountered a giant tree that had fallen over and blocked the highway. We got there at a good time as within 10 minutes it was …

Milford Sound

Queenstown-Te Anau-Milford Sound-Queenstown (Bus)

Ein Tag im Bus ist offenbar anstrengender als ein Tag auf dem Rad im Gegenwind. War am Abend zu k.o., um noch joggen zu gehen. Na ja, Ruhetage sollen ja wichtig sein. Habe ich mal gehört.

Der ganze Ausflug dauerte 12 h und die meiste Zeit sassen wir im Bus. Die Fahrt an sich war …

Dry Hostel

Upon check-in, with our duty free bottles of alcohol clinking in our hands, we were told that this hostel had now become a dry hostel.
It would have been nice to sit in the lounge in front of the fireplace with a mulled wine or Baileys & milk instead of having to go out anytime we wanted an alcoholic drink.
Other than that the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Nomads offered daily events; varying from a hike to bingo and drinks offers at The Find.

Would definitely recommend this hostel, just unfortunate that its dry.

its voted the best hostel in NZ for a reason. I had a room with a balcony, there's a TV room, lounge with sofas and fire, free tea/coffee and toast at breakfast, free dinner, sauna and a good location in town :)
