Queenstown

After a very early start and an unexpected detour to Invercargill, Bex and I had an amazing time in Queenstown recently. In the past, I’ve been quite put off by the commercialism of the place, but we embraced it this time around and had a shamelessly decadent and wonderful time.

Highlights …

– Going into the casino with $10 and coming out with $50 …

– Great food, especially at Rata and from all and every purveyor of Southland cheese rolls I could find.

– Paragliding for the first time (not scary, just spectacularly).

– Road tripping the length of Southland after our plane was diverted. Bex and I could be stuck in a sinking submarine and somehow still have a great time.
