Milford Sound + Gunn's Camp

Day one of the Stray Adventure! Getting on the bus with a load of people who had already been on the bus together for ages was the tiniest bit strange. There's all these bus games about Spaceships and tractors or something? I have no idea if every Stray bus does them or if ours was just weird. On the way to Milford Sound to begin with, though stopped in Te Anau for an extremely delicious veggie pie. Mmmm. Then on a phote stop we ran into a Korean filming crew, making a documentary about the mammoths in the ice age (I think), so we might be on Korean tv one of these days 😊

Milford Sound was awesome, but honestly, there's so much beautiful scenery here just looking out the bus windows it's hard to appreciate more. But that might just be me. It was nice anyway.

Stayed the night in Gunn's Camp. In hindsight, a lot of fun. At the time, we were just trying to keep the bloody coal fire going. The generator for the electricity was switched off at 10pm, so going to the toilet was practically an assault course as it was completely I-think-I'm-blind dark. Would actually be nice to go back, but maybe better prepared next time, with more than just soup we could heat on top of the stove!
