Well having met up with Jason in Auckland i flew down to Queenstown. Have to admit, its a beautiful place. lots of very nice bars with roaring log fires,(its cold here) !

Winnies bar of course, very nice pizzas. might have another in Christchurch !

Lots of Driving. drove to Te anau and following day to Milford to Kayak.

weather was stunning, enjoyed it a lot but never really got the hang of paddling.

fantastic views along the way. the Homer Tunnel, the mountains etc.

love those Kea birds, very comical. chase one and it runs away rather than flying !

would come back to Milford,Queenstown and Te Anau. sooner the better!

ps, had a great burger too. Ferg burger, huge and very cheap!

if this was Aus and that was a saltwater i would have felt very differently! Dolphins are like fire works, they bring out the child in you
