Fire and Water
Today we travelled to Milford Sound, via**** Flat and Egglington Flat, where the bus driver and tour manager suddenly jumped off the bus and started dancing around on the massive plain to 'The Sound of Music'! To get to Milford Sound we had to take the only route - a tunnel through the mountain. As we came through the other side there was another coach with its engine on fire, so Eddie the driver went to the rescue! We also stopped off at The Chasm, and went for a walk to see the waterfall, before reaching our boat on Milford Sound. The Milford Wanderer is a sailing boat, and the cabins are about 9ft wide, so with four of us in one it was quite cosy!
We had soup as we arrived, and then split off to do various water activities. Daniela and I went on a speedboat out to the Tasmin sea, and Lisa went kayaking around the cove. We had an amazing homecooked dinner, and then spent the evening looking at the beautiful view, drinking lots of wine and playing board games...until we were told to go to bed like children by our tour manager!
