... into a rather snug space. While the first 7 of us were able to do this, the hot tub was now near breaking point (it had already lost much of its water) and so the three remaining housemates were left to their own devices. At one point, needing to visit the toilet, I leapt out of the tub only to be confronted by the, at first terrifying, and then rather creepy sight of Amy, Helen and Kate staring at me from one of the bath tubs on the floor below - evidently, they had settled for ...
... inside the Ice bar is made of ice, even the bar and the cups. There are ice carvings of a carriage, an ice lounge, and a bear. We have Belvedere vodka drinks, and do a shot from the ice luge. They give you heavy jackets with fur lined hoods and gloves to wear inside. The temperature is -5° Celsius, about 20° Fahrenheit. After the Ice Bar, we go to Vinyl Underground.

... lazy morning/early afternoon in the sunshine having a coffee with James. Then we head off just as the heavens opened to do the scenic drive over Haast Past through a national park. We could see absolutely sweet FA through the mist, we could only just tell there were mountains. As we reached the Queenstown Lake District, the weather brightens and we were rewarded with views of snow capped mountains behind huge lakes. Sweet baby Jesus. Epic. Had a quick drive ...
