This place is just sooooooo cool!!!

Today we had a loooooooooooooooooooooooong drive! but never have we seen scenery like it!

Every time we drove round a corner we were mouths wide open "this is amazing!" then you drive round another corner and it just changes and goes on and on and on and it is amazing! The South Island really is the most beautiful place I have ever seen!

We made quite a few photo stops today! especially when we saw the snow capped mountains behind the piercing blue lake! it is like another world to me....I have never seen anything quite like it before!

So the 8 hour drive wasn't to bad!

We finally made it in around 8pm and just driving in to the place I knew I was going to love it (and no Ozz it had nothing to do with all the nice shops I saw!!!!). Queenstown is surrounded by alpine mountains, it has a massive lake and to me is what I imagined a ski town to look like (probably has something to do with it being a ski town in the winter!)

If you don't know about Queenstown it is extreme-ville! (I can hear you cringing from here mother Pettet!!) bungeys, skydives you name it they do it here!

So stay tuned to see what we get up too!!
