The hostel is great-YHA in the centre of town. Had a private room with ensuite.
Went up the Gondola this morning. Bumped into Mitchell and Jackie while I was up there (an Australian couple who were on the bus up to Bay of islands)-very happy to see them again. They ended up renting a campervan and doing their own thing....they are doing another short trip with Stray later on.
Also bumped into the girl from France. Such a coincidence!
Ate at Fergburger last night-very popular-the most enormous burger I have ever seen! Was quite tasty though (chicken with avocado)...
Met up with Helen for dinner at the Pub along the waterfront and then she went to meet up with her friend who is now living in Queenstown. Ate green mussels again (see pic).
I think I would love to come back here during the off season. It is a beautiful place, just too busy this time of year. Supposedly, it has been extremely busy in the past 4-5 years-unsure why?!
Tomorrow, heading to Mount Cook....
'Travelling can become routine' and 'Spoon (our previous driver) is not my world'-quotes from the world of Rosie....lol
