Safe arrival in Queenstown: After an easy going 2 hours flight that I spent chatting away with an 78 year old hiker from New Zealand who spent the war times in Berlin, I arrived on Queenstown Airport.
The first impression was already stunning, the southern Alps seem promising indeed. The first thing I did after I got my luggage was going on a walk from the Airport to Frankton, the closest settlement nearby. Although I didn’t mind a small stroll, this happened out of sheer necessity, since I there was no public transport bus coming and I wasn’t willing to pay for a cab. So I spent my time walking and peeping at the nearby lake.
The next couple of days I will spend here exploring Queenstown and its surroundings just to see how it is. Tonight I will also meet up with Lara, Anki and Sarah who are in town as well. And why having dinner all alone while you can have the same with three wonderful ladies instead?
Well, let the vacation begin 🙂
