A Brief Stop In Queenstown, New Zealand

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.

  1. You could have just stayed! I love that place. Really beautiful and although you’d think it’s quite simple, it’s not! I think I need to go reserve a Queenstown accommodation! I would love to go back there!

  2. I wonder why it is only a brief one. Queenstown is a place worth staying. I loved it and the adventures are all so worth it. A Queenstown apartment is what you need!
