Lake Wanaka and queenstown

We wrote this a few days ago now –

Lake Wanaka was beautiful. We spent our evening having a picnic and wine by the lake. The next morning we walked to Puzzling World – a place full of illusions, puzzles and mazes. We were in fits of laughter more than once and had a very fun morning here! 

 
Next we drove to Queenstown and we love it! A cool town with snow capped mountains and a lake as the back drop. Our hostel looks right out over the water. We had a night out here with our stray buddies and went to a few cool bars with roaring fires. The next morning we were driven up to the AJ Hackett  Bungy site – dont  worry  we weren’t  brave enough to jump off! Instead we had a ride on the zip line which was a lot of fun. Watching the jumpers was rather scary! We also tried one of the infamous fergburgers – a burger place which always has a massive queue whatever time of day – and we weren’t disappointed! They were absolutely huge and delicious 🙂
 
This morning we went on a hike up Queenstown hill and tomorrow we are going on a day trip to Milford Sound which is meant to be spectacular 🙂
 
We heart NZ!
