Rather frustratingly, yesterday’s blog failed to load due to poor Wi-Fi where we were staying in Te Anau. I’ll finish it off today, then blog about our trip to Queenstown (where we are now). We’ve dropped off our hire-car so we’re on foot again now. Not that it’s a problem as we fly back from here to Auckland tomorrow.

Neither of us are adrenaline junkies, so Queenstown’s extreme sports are wasted on us. Instead, we’re enjoying the scenery and exploring. Right now we’re enjoying a drink outside a bar in central Queenstown. It’s “poets day” here (Piss-Off Early, Tomorrow’s Saturday) so the place is full of builders and hospitality workers – most of whom are English!
