We stayed in their Lakefront apartments, a stunning location directly overlooking the water in the very heart of Queenstown but were also entitled to use all the facilities of the hotel including breakfast and evening drinks in the famous Eichardt'd bar. Our apartment was spacious and very comfortable in every way. Having been on the road for a week already we were delighted to have a washing machine and drier in the kitchen area. Over in the bar the staff were all friendly, professional and extremely efficient. A wonderful place to stay in Queenstown.

... through racist rhetoric. In addition, the conditions were hard and many miners did not make it through the harsh winters. By 1921, only 59 miners remained.

It was a pretty fantastic time; the luge was like real-life Mario Kart! If only ...
... on a cliff, 109 metres above the river. That's 360 feet, for those of you who speak American. After departing the platform, voluntarily or otherwise, you drop for 60 metres. Just under 200 feet. At this point, the swing catches you and you glide into a nice 200 metre arc. Or, 650 feet. The thrill and rush of it is something very hard to describe to those who aren't into this sort of thing, or who haven't yet had the chance to try it.
... the jet boats. Jet boating was insannnnne. Loved every minute of it. Totally fun and the scenery was incredible. The boats could travel up to 90kmph in as shallow as 5cm of water. When I got back to Queenstown I met with Nathan and Alex and jumped in the back of their van (with a crate of G&T) and drove to Bob's cove. Headed back to the beach for more drinks and then hit up dominoes for a 5$ pizza. Last chance to have ...
... shops, small motels and backpackers. I've seen more kids with dreds here than in the Caribbean. To quote our waiter, an ex-pat from Britain, "It's a chill place!"
The town was preparing for a marathon, so it was very busy with runners. We did a lot of walking here. Through the town, along the shore of Lake Wakatipu and along the many hiking trails. And, no. We did not do any of the extreme activities. The cost was pretty crazy. The ...
... as taking off. Ian brought us down and just told me when to stand up. Done.
After this was all done, I still felt a bit blurk so lay down on the grass in the sun for a while as they packed up. I figured out pretty quickly what was wrong. Sunstroke. :-( I do succumb to it occasionally and despite the cold temps here still that require a warm jacket and a couple of layers under at nearly all times, they have even less ozone here than ...
