Just got to Queenstown today, so far so good. Yesterday we were in franz Josef and saw the glacier. We had a 2 hour horse trek 1st thing and saw it from the horse. It was really good, but I had a horse who liked to be in the lead and liked to trot off, hence the sore backside today!! She was white and called Casper, but she was lovely. Then we had a long drive to Wanaka and stopped off in Haast on the way for lunch. We went to Puzzling World when we got to Wanaka which has a maze where have to find your way to the 4 corners. We only managed to do 2 then we gave up otherwise we would have been there all night!
Today we went to Have a Shot where I shot 30 rounds from a smallbore rifle, had a round of golf,did some archery and then clay pigeon shooting. I now have a massive bruise on my inner arm where the bow twanged me and a bruise on my shoulder from the clay pigeon shotgun (I hit 9 out of 32 by the way which is really good for a 1st go!)
Then we went to Arrowtown on the way to Queenstown. We did a walk along the Arrow River and I went to the spot where the Nazgul chase Arwen and Frodo in The Fellowship of the Ring. I also bought myself a silver version of "the one ring" (how sad!!)
So we've just had pizza and are going to have a drink somewhere. Tomorrow we're going to potter about and then go to the casino (with a spending limit!) on the evening.
Weather has been good so far, but rain is forecast for the next few days, fingers crossed it holds off.
Will do photos next time, haven't got my camera cable with me now.
See you soon, love Clair xx
