Queenstown,Snowboarding @ the Remarkables & Milford Sound


Ok so i suck at snowboarding but it was still a lot of fun. Managed to actually be able to stop (no no by falling on my arse!) and do a turn. Queenstown is a lot of fun, you can do any crazy action activity under the sun here. Call me strange but i don't fancy doing a bungy attached to a chair, the nevis bungy - falling 139metres! into a lake or a canyon swing! Stopped at the first commercial bungy site - AJ Hackett on the way to Queenstown.

Queenstown in the party capital of the south island and my hangover after a night out here proved it!

The weather has been fantastic and the views breathtaking. Have loved seeing the 2 metres long icicles!!

As part of my magic bus pass I could go on a day trip to Milford sound. What an amazing day. Driven from Queenstown we stopped in Te Anua...a small town with the 2nd largest lake in NZ. We made several other photo stops on the way to Milford including mirror lakes. Spectacular views all the way, snow capped mountains for as far as the eye could see. Spotted my first kea, looks like a fat large parrot! When we arrived in Milford we went on a river cruise along the sound. Waterfalls, mountains and clear waters....beautiful.
