The drive to both Wanaka and Queenstown was simply stunning, just so beautiful. We spent 3 nights in Queenstown, and it seems to be known as quite a party town, so we were looking forward to going out and being able to stay in bed a bit in the mornings! We had a bar crawl organised for us, that ended up in the world bar which is opposite our hostel. We went to a place called Winnies after which was a club on the first floor of a place. The floor was moving so much from all the jumping and it was so packed!
The next day was a trip to Milford Sound, which is known as the eighth wonder of the world. The trip there we were a little hungover (Melissa the worst haha) and it took 4 hours! The weather was miserable which made us in a little bit of a bad mood. When we got there we had a 2 hour boat trip around Milford Sound, which would have been so much better if the weather was good. You could tell that on a clear day the whole thing could've been very impressive, but we were just a little bit underwhelmed. We got to see penguins though! I would definitely say go if it is a nice day, as some people who went the next day the pictures looked really good, we were just a little unlucky.
Make sure you come back to see Queenstown part 2 post!!
