Didn't realise it was a good 5-6 hours of driving away! Stopped along the way and had the opportunity to take photos of the mountains and lakes in the national park including the mirror lakes - as they sound, very beautiful.
Arrived into Milford Sound and boarded our boat. Got a little picnic lunch which everyone was ready for! Our sail lasted about 2 hours - I'll try and paint a picture: calm, clear turquoise water surrounded by mountain faces with giant waterfalls trickling down them
Back to the bus and we all pretty much slept the entire way back. Didn't arrive in Queenstown until 7.45pm. In my head I felt like a quiet one but it was Antonia's last night - I walked back in the hotel and they were getting ready to go out - I knew it wasn't going to be a quiet one! Went for dinner first before heading to Winnie's for some dancing. Went to a place called Globe bar for a while - they serve drinks in teapots. Cool place but I think the average age in there was about 12! So we headed to Buffalo and danced until the small hours..
