We are currently in Queenstown, a beautiful upmarket ski style resort by a lake nestled in lord of the rings-esque mountains. A lot to report since Nelson. On our way to Westport (our next stop) we snaked our way through the beginning of the southern alp mountain range to arrive at Buller Adventures where took a ride along the river on a jet boat (a boat not powered by propellers but by jet engines) at scarily fast speeds twisting and turning so that we were sprayed with water and came back thoroughly wet and cold. After standing in the little lounge burning our bums against their fire we were driven to 'Basil's Place', a homelike hostel in pretty dead town. That night we had a lovely tuna pasta and watched American Psycho and Anchor man (that film never gets old!) in a large TV room before getting an early night.
