We have left The Big Blue to take a side trip to Queenstown, New Zealand. What an amazing country this is! We stayed in a small sort of bed and breakfast place close to down town. It was perfect for us. We were able to walk everywhere and go to what seems like 100 restaurants and bars within a square mile.
We took a drive along the lake …
... covered in snow and blue lakes
anyway we we got down and I think that on this occasion the pilot deserved a clap as we hit the runway at extra full speed - he just seemed to drop out of the sky.
obviously we were meant to get here - only one of two flights today.
relieved to be safe and looking forward to our journey through what already seems an incredible country
will ppst photos soon
... queenstown on the bus. The Milford sound was good, although we thought that the malborough sound which is part of the ferry crossing from North and sound island was much prettier. Finally today we had a cool day. We went up a massive hill/mountain in a gondala/ski loft. Harriet was very anxious and did not want to go up. After some persuasion we made it to the top and Harriet was very brave. The views were very cool! We then had to get a ski chair lift ...
... we were able to get a spectacular view of the town. Despite the weather being grey, our view was not obscured by clouds and we could see all of the surrounding mountains. We had also bought 3 luge rides each on the attached luge track. Unfortunately, the luge track was extremely busy and we had to wait quite a while before each of our turns (again, winter break). We both had a lot of fun though- and Natalie managed to come down first each time :)
The fire station has the same alarm that goes off when someone needs a fire engine as when the bombs were about to come over in World War II. I wasn't alive during that time but I know the sound. Anyway, it occasionally goes off and you can hear it for miles. It was quite alarming at first, were we at the start of another war? Then a local told us it was for the fire brigade and it is also used for when a natural disaster is about to strike. I'd say it goes off at least 4-5 times ...
