Adventure number two in New Zealand was exploring the party and extreme sports capital of New Zealand’s South Island, Queenstown.
Waking up at Haka Lodge in Christchurch, Cinthia and I made a valiant effort to make it to our bus down south. Unfortunately we missed it by a hair, and had to try again the next day. Traveling down to Queenstown was nice enough, though.
Nomads in Queenstown… despite being in the serene mountains, Queenstown is a party town, and I happend to check into the main party hostel, filled with british youth cut loose on their first “vacay”.
Extreme sports is big in Queenstown, and I did a quick hike up to the top of the mountain from where the paragliders launch.
