Well what can I say Queenstown is just about the coolest town I’ve had the pleasure of staying in.
Not only is it situated in the most jaw-dropping eye-popping location. I mean just look at these beasts of mountains.
But it is a hustley bustley smallish town full of life with such character. Such a difference from bland Auckland. I was really looking forward to flying into queenstown over the southern alps however there was so much cloud so I only got tiny glimpses of what awaited me below.
I was picked up from the airport by my host family and immediately thrown into their crazy dynamic house. My current fam is 2 Kiwis 3 Germans 1 french 2 swedes 1 Canadian 1 black cat 33 horses and me. So no two days are the same, either in the weather, activities or jokes.
Yes we have a fire! And do we need it. I thought I was leaving the cold weather in England but boy was I wrong! In a typical day we could have snow, rain, sun, a million miles per hour wind and back to snow again. The weather changes so quickly up in the mountains. But summer is coming or so I am told. (Fingers crossed it’s sooner rather than later)
This is the view I wake up to everyday. Not bad huh! Think I’m gonna like it here in Queenstown!
Peace out xx
