Riders of the Rohirrim

... and cafes. First, we visited the Arrow River where a scene from the Lord of the Rings was filmed. This is where part of the scene of Arwen rides through the river while saving Frodo in the Fellowship of the Ring. We could not pinpoint exactly where the scene was filmed, but we could recognize the scenery as a whole.

We then walked up and down the main street before leaving town. Our next destination was Glenorchy, an hour drive (45 minutes from Queenstown). ...

... day trip to Milford sounds. Milford sounds has been known as one of the 8th wonders of the world. It was cancelled the day before because of snow because there is only one road that leads to Milford sound and it gets closed if it's too risky to drive through. On the Wednesday we set off knowning the road was closed but in hope that it would open before we got there about an hour it it started to snow, heavy but the road we wer on there was no chance of doing a ...

Utter Nutters

... had dried. Yep I will probably catch my death but nothing beats letting your hair dry naturally in the dry crisp air of winter! The streets were packed with people, there were all little food stalls out again and everyone was in my way. There was a couple of events happening down at the lakeside and I couldn't get a good spot to stand and see what was happening. I eventually walked really far down and caught a glimpse of what was ...

A Brighter Day

... The whole facility had been completely shut down all week for cleaning and maintenance. It was weird seeing the pool empty of water and it stunk of glue or paint. Luckily in our section we couldn't really smell it. As I was the first and only person in, I got the first choice on what jobs to so naturally I picked the ones that required the least amount of elbow grease. However, it was mind numbingly boring. I had to write the name of the swim school on every float, flipper, toy ...

Up Before the Sheep to Hike the Routeburn

... trail to Forge Flat right before the Loo with a View. It was nothing extraordinary but it was worth the 8 min detour. We felt some raindrops as we were crossing the last swing bridge and made it back to the car park at 5:50. A few minutes after leaving we passed a paddock full of Paradise Shelducks (the females have the striking white heads). I don’t know what is so special about that spot but we saw them in that same place on our ...

    We had a two room unit that was equipped with a decent kitchenette and comfortable lounge facilities. Another place which offered us a choice of full cream or skim milk. And which had free Internet access. Thanks.

    The most appealing thing about this lodge was that it was a 5 min walk from the centre of town. We basically walked everywhere from this location, and could quickly return back 'home' whenever we needed to.
