Doubtful Sound Cruise – Day 55

I had planned a trip to Doubtful Sound today, which I guessed would be similar to Milford Sound, except not quite as good. It should be a fun day though.

Milford Sound Cruise – Day 54

I had a very busy day planned today, and a very long drive also. I didn’t realise at the time, though, just how busy it would turn out to be. I was hoping for a great drive to Milford Sound nonetheless.

Loosing Some Baggage – Day 53

Another day dawned and a new adventure was about to begin. There was the small matter of a certain person to deal with first though. For this reason I had to be up early, but this wasn’t much of a problem.

White-Water Sledging Near Queenstown – Day 51

Today was a day of much excitement, as it was a chance to try my hand at white water sledging. It was cool in the air, and I just imagined how cold the water would be. Hopefully it would be a fun day.
