This morning we find ourselves walking through a beautiful farmers market set up along the water in Wellington. It is a gorgeous day out and we couldn’t have asked for a better goodbye morning from the city. Around lunch we make our way over to the airport for our flight to Queenstown.
When getting off the plane in Queenstown we are greeted by magnificent mountains surrounding us completely. It is so stunning and actually reminds me of Vancouver. The little city here is really cute and reminds me of Whistler Village. After settling in we walk through the town towards the Skyline Gondola that takes you up a mountain to look over the city.

Rebecca and I are picked up early this morning to take a bus over to Milford Sound, a serene bay of water with mountains and waterfalls on both sides. Although it was super cloudly and foggy, it added to the mystical feel of the sound.

Heading off today to a small town called Te Anau. Just across the town on the otherside of Lake Te Anau, there are thousands of year old caves. Today we take a tour of the first bit of the caves to see glowworms. We were allowed to take any pictures inside the caves since light and sound cause the glowworms to react and lose their glow. It was amazing though, to be in a pitch black cave with tiny spots of lights all around with only the sound of rushing water.
The ferry ride across the lake did however offer some amazing views.

Today is such a beautiful day out! Incredibly clear skies and warm sun aka perfect conditions for skydiving!! Yes, I have become addicted after my first go in Airlie Beach and apparently Queenstown is an adventure capital so I might as well!
This time I decided to jump from the highest option which is 15,000 feet, compared to my first which was 10,000. After having the first experience I just wanted to be up there for as long as possible. Anyways, no much else to say so here are the hilarious photos:
