Queenstown, New Zealand

A few weeks back a girlfriend and I headed off to Queenstown, New Zealand to hit the slopes and learn to ski. It was my first visit to New Zealand, and even though it was limited in terms of where we went (just Queenstown in the South Island) and time we had to adventure (a week off of work), it was amazing.

The South Island is ridiculously beautiful, the panoramic views in Lord of the Rings are even more stunning in real life, and the New Zealand sense of humour is just the icing on the top. Can you tell I loved it?

So as requested, here is a snapshot of my time in Queenstown. And here's to being able to return and maybe campervan it from the North Island to the South, being able to discover more and witness the brilliance that is New Zealand. Oh and be able to do some more snowboarding (switched over to it on day 3 and absolutely LOVED IT!!!), bungee jumping and try out zorbing, of course :)

Apologies for the over-sharing (I just couldn't narrow it down!)
