Let's talk about fiords

A travel blog entry by jamierand


First off, to the more observant of you, yes there is a gray speck on my camera lens. We can't get it off. Sometimes we're able to place it over some rocks or trees, but it's always there. About half way through this post is where we put the camera away and switched to my phone camera... which as it turns out takes much nicer photos and fits in my …

A Glorious Day at Doubtful Sound

A travel blog entry by wbeardsl


We had been wondering about having come all this way to see Milford Sound only to find that we could not get there. It seemed like a waste but I had a feeling that God knew that there was something better in store. And there was. We decided to book a trip on Doubtful Sound for the day we were to leave for Queenstown. It would be an all day trip but …

It was basically a drive all day type of day with a few stops for coffee and some eats. The weather got progressively worse as we approached our destination. The clouds darkened, the wind started to …

Flight to the Fiord

A travel blog entry by nbinette04

Looking over the edge gave onlookers vertigo as the ledge dropped steeply to a flat located a thousand meters below. You could follow the trail of the clouds as they were sucked over the edge and into the abyss. We waited and waited for the clouds to lift, hoping to get a decent view. Then, as if the heavens opened up, our wishes ...

    You just can't beat coming home to your own cottage after a long day hiking in the hills. Sitting on your private deck, sipping wine while you dinner sizzles on the grill. Did I mention the awesome shower?? Truly a pleasureable way to spend the week and the hosts were as welcoming as could be!
