9th and 10th December
Today we head for Queenstown (adventure capital on NZ).
We stopped briefly at Lake Wanaka for a toilet stop and souviner stop then onto Queenstown arriving at 5pm.... Not much we could do in the evening so we sat at Winnies Bar and had a couple of drinkie, not too many as we have a busy day planned for tomorrow.
Today we went on the Funyak Safari along the Dart River Valley and spectacular World Herritage Area and scenery of Mount Aspiring National Park where parts of the Lord of the Rings were filmed. The views were absolutely amazing and waters so clear and turquise... We travelled up the riverby jet boatliterally dodging all the rocks. We stopped for a wilderness buffet thenreturned down stream in inflatable kayaks..... i got a bit stressed because it was hard work so we ended up attacheing ourself to the instructor, which was much more leisurely......
