We got a nice flight direct to Auckland with connection to Queenstown. Nice United plane, and AirNZ lounge:






Jennifer made a friend right out of Queenstown

Views of Queenstown on the way in:





Jennifer was very tired the first day, so I went out to check out a few attractions and went for a walk, while she rested:







The next morning, we left for our trip to the Routeburn Track with Ultimate Hikes

After that, we moved hotels and I went up the Gondola for views and luge:




After kicking some poor tourists' ass at luge, I came back down to visit the Kiwi Birdlife Park with Jennifer:

















After that, I took a bus to Te Anau to do the Kepler Track, and when I came back, Jennifer got some yummy lamb for us:


The next morning, we started with a nice jetboat tour of the Dart River, up north. Very scenic:

The next day, we flew to Queenstown to Mt Cook, and Glacier Heli Hike

After that, we were supposed to see another glacier, but due to bad weather, we changed our plans. We took the shotover jet:








Next, I went to try a new flyboard/jetpack:

On the way back, found some ducklings:

Next, we went for wine tasting for Jennifer:



By then, it was raining hard, so we went to the escape room again:


And went to get an unobtanium burger that had stupid long lines:

The last day, the weather wasn't great (too windy), so what we were hoping to do, was cancelled. We ended up chilling at the hotel and airport lounge for our flight to Christchurch:




Not the best weather in Queenstown, but that's on par for the course. At least we got to see some things we hadn't yet :)
