Travel blog – New Zealand 

Day 1: Queenstown and surrounds 

Waking up to this view from our Queenstown apartment after getting in late last night. Yep that’s snow up there on The Remarkables. 

Room with a view! 

Out for an early morning walk along the lake. 

Driving to Glenorchy and stopping every few kilometres to take photos of amazing scenery! 

Glenorchy had a great little pub full of interesting bits and pieces. Just ask my husband about the reading material in the men’s toilet! 

The scenery was spectacular. 

We visited Glenorchy for morning tea and Arrowtown for lunch. What quaint little places! 

Travelling with good friends is always fun! 

I ❤️ holidays!

    One of my best friends is from NZ and she’s moving back this year. I’m sad, but we also can’t wait to visit her! Also, Neil wants to visit the penguins!
