I was ecstatic to realize a Bucket List location of mine- New Zealand! We recently returned from Queenstown and it did not disappoint! A charming mountain town, beautiful views, comfortable stays, good food and adventures to be had makes for a great spot to visit.
We were scheduled to do a Milford sound helicopter ride and cruise, but due to weather, we weren't able to make it there. Fortunately, we were still able to do a glacier helicopter ride which was awe-inspiring! I really don't know how much more beautiful the views could have gotten in Milford Sound! Part of our experience was landing on a snow capped mountain to soak in our surroundings. Our 50-minute ride had jaw dropping views and the icing on the cake was having Alfie, our helicopter pilot who has been in the business a long time and very well known. He was the helicopter pilot who chased Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible the Fallout!
Another highlight was the Shotover jet boat ride we did. We went through a canyon, very fast, at times doing a full circle spin in the water. The color of the water is turquoise blue which is so pretty. You see this too from up in the air. This country is pristine which I think makes it so special.
