Queenstown – Part 4

It was my final morning in Queenstown.

We went for a cruise on the lake as that was something Kevin hadn’t done before. It was such a gorgeous day for it and we were able to sit outside and really enjoy it.

The Remarkables

It was such a lovely way to spend my last morning in Queenstown. After the cruise we went back to the room and collected my luggage before heading to the airport. Kevin stayed and had lunch with me, then I went through to Qantas Club and he headed back to the room.

Thankfully I had a window seat for the flight as we once again had stunning views of Queenstown and the surrounding area on the way home.

Queenstown – Part 3

I admit it’s been quite some time since I returned home from Queenstown but I wanted to finish sharing photos of this special trip.

For the last two day it was the weekend so I was able to spend the days with Kevin. On Saturday we drove out to Glenorchy. The views were incredible and we were constantly stopping, getting out of the car, and taking photos.

Now there isn’t too much at Glenorchy but we spent quite a while exploring Mrs Wooly’s General Store. The old (non-minimalist) me could have bought quite a bit here. But I just bought a sloppy joe (don’t have one) and some pies for lunch.

After lunch we had a little wander around and watched the local swans before heading to Dart River Cruises.

for out jet boat tour. This was awesome and so much fun. To be out on the water (on such a gorgeous day) surrounded by majestic mountains, was such a memorable experience.

After the jetboat ride we had a short walk through the forest before one final stop on the bus ride back to Glenorchy.

Isn’t this just picture perfection? No wonder so much of Lord of the Rings was filmed around here.
