Getting behind updating the blog with our New Zealand adventures. Have been unpacking, doing laundry, catching up. But enough of that. Here are some picks of Queenstown, an outdoor-junky mecca in the south part of South Island. We flew in and out of there from/to Sydney. Stunning setting on a lake surrounded by mountains and a first-class wine region next door. The first night we found a funky bar out in wine country, by a campground - seemed like a kiwi outpost from the 60s. Had some beer and some great fish and chips. Next day, we went on a beautiful hike outside of town, and then went back to the wine region, to Amisfield Vineyard for a wonderful lunch, outside, gorgeous day, lavender nearby, great wine, of course. Then took a drive to Glenorchy (see next post).
