After Wanaka we went to Queenstown
We got on the bus to Dun Eden which is the student town of NZ, and we walked up the steepest road in the world. After Dun Eden we jumped in a car with the boys and did the rest of the south island without the bus (the bus is sooo slow!). We went to a place called nugget bay which was on top of a cliff. We saw seals but the weather turned really nasty and we got drowned with hail! We also went to a waterfall on the way to Invercargil which was huge, but was a very muddy road to get there. We were going to spend the night at Cario bay but there was nothing there, just 5 buildings and no bar in sight so we headed straight to Invercargill.
We spent two days in Invercargil
After Invercargill we went to Te Anau. In teh way there we stopped at a gem stone beach which didnt quite live up to its name! just lots of stones and it smelt really horrible! I found some stones that could be gem stones, but more than likely I will just come home with a bag full of pebbles! We also went to a lake which is meant to be very spiritual! It was very pretty but really cold!
Yesterday we went Milford Sound which was stunning! It is just such a pretty place, lots of snowy mountains, trees and really still lakes. We spent some time walking around there and then we went to a mirror lake, but it was too windy to really mirror the scenery. It was a really long drive but well worth it!
We are back in Queenstown now and will be getting back on the bus on Tuesday!
