New Zealand Wrap Up

So, I haven't finished blogging about our trip to New Zealand, and so I felt like I wasn't ready to move on the regular ole blogging. So here is a recap of the rest of our two and a half week trip to New Zealand. :)

You already saw pictures from our trip to Willowbank Wildlife Refuge and also some from Hanmer Springs and the wineries.

Here are a couple more pics that I love from the winery. Hunter and Jesse were just hamming it up for the camera.

Our big activity while we were out there was a road trip to Queenstown! It's about a six hour drive from Christchurch to Queenstown, but we were excited for a little time on the road!

On the way there we stopped at Lake Tekapo. It was stunning!

We scored on finding a place to stay in Queenstown. The Pepper's resort where we were staying in Christchurch, called their resort in Queenstown, and got up a 1 bedroom lake view apartment, for only... $140/night. We looked it up online and they were going for around $400! We got there and were amazed by the room but mostly the fabulous view from the balcony!

We soooo enjoyed our time in Queenstown. We walked around the town, went on a steamboat to an island where there was a farm tour, went up the gondola, and then went on the luge ride down!

I probably have a few more cool pics I'll want to share, but these just got a whole lot of them of my shoulders. Maybe now I can move on the some regular blogging :)


  1. Awesome apartment and the views...so peaceful! I want to ride on one of those down the hill!! Great photos...thanks for sharing:)

  2. Beautiful photos! I haven't been to Queenstown since I was a kid. :)


Jesse is active duty Air Force and is originally from southern Minnesota. He has also managed to become a follower of just about every hobby known to man (which drives his wife crazy!).

Henry was born on July 4, 2007. His hobbies include playing with his squeaker toys, barking a little girls, dock jumping, going to the dog park, and being spoiled rotten by his grandparents.
