Now we have been to a town fit for a QUEEN! Can you guess it’s name?
From Philip and Diana’s home in Oamaru (more on that later), we drove the 3 hours to Queenstown.
On the way we looked at the elephant rocks. It is hard to believe that it used to be under the sea.
We got back in the car and went on our way. Next stop had a river with people on boogie boards gliding down the rapids in the currents. It is called river surfing. They had wetsuits on because the water was freezing- it was snowing in the mountains in the distance!
After that we traveled through countryside with grapevines and orchards, after all, this is a big part of New Zealand. Am I right?
Finally, we reached our destination, Queenstown. Awaiting us in the morning at our home stay was a very nice Australian couple from Canberra. Aeron braided my hair and I braided hers.
Down to the town we went. There was a line of creative mailboxes down the street and beautiful views of the lake, shiny and sleek.
That wasn’t all, because on our way back we saw an activity that might give you a heart attack. A bungee jump that is way high up, on a bridge.
This is where bungee jumping was invented back in the 1970’s.
This now brings an end to my unabridged story!
