Queenstown in Photos

The town in the afternoon

These pictures are from my short trip to Queenstown (which is in the wonderful South Islands of New Zealand) back in August. Unfortunately I was too caught up with studies afterwards to even post about it! We just went over there for a weekend with friends, and we are definitely wanting to come back for more! We did a scenic day-tour through Te Anau, Fiordlands, and of course, cruised in the majestic Milford Sound. The weather was unpredictable as usual, but everything was still lovely. We got to ride the gondola and play around in the luge on our first day, and we also got to try skiing (without any lessons!) during the night! All in all, it was a very good trip, considering that it was pretty spontaneous (once we found online deals, we started calling everyone from our group friends at once and asking them on the spot if they wanted to come along)!

Fresh, cool water from the ice melting on the mountains!

Fresh, cool water from the ice melting on the mountains! Yes, we drank from that stream!

Happy me! :)

Milford Sound, looking eerily beautiful with the mountains looking like giant shadows

Queenstown is so beautiful, I hope to go back and experience it during another season! During the summer maybe! But that’s all for now, hope you’ve enjoyed the photos, and that I’ve somehow made you think about wanting to go and visit this place too!
