Jane And Alex's Big Holiday
We love Queenstown! Not only do they do New Zealands best hot chocolate here, it is really pretty and loads of fun things to do - bunji, river surfing, luging, paragliding, hangliding, jet boating, etc. and lots of shops and cool bars. went to the minus 5 bar as part of jane's bday which everyone loved! it is completely made of ice...no lie! we had to wear woolly boots, gloves and a massive thick coat! were in there an hour, the temp was -8.3 degrees and our hands almost fell off! did a shot out of an ice sculpture, got some funny photos and had some funky drinks! river surfing the next day to cure the hangover, pretty hard to get used to. it is definitly harder than it looks, need to know how to get in and out of the current which completely confused me (Jane) and meant i ended up off my board a lot and under the river...ooops! was good fun though, went through grade 4 rapids (nightmare) but serious fun! got a free hotdog at the end of the day which was ok but made out of ruddy lamb!
