... find Queenstown warm and sunny again, much better than the cold and rainy weather we experienced on the boat that morning. We also didn't have to deal with the annoying bugs any longer. The boat was fun though and we did meet some interesting people from Taiwan, Ireland, DC, and New York.....So back to Queenstown. We were dropped off and made our way right to the Gondola and purchased our tickets to ride up to the platform area where we would face ...
