Queenstown & Milford Sound


Last stop of the trip was the infamous Milford Sound and Queenstown.

Milford Sound is one of the wettest places on Earth, but the fog is hardly a reason to not rent a kayak and cruise to Mitre Peak and Lady Bowen Falls.

I think you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who doesn’t love Queenstown, at least a little bit.  From the stores of Lake Wakatipu, to water taxis, hiking and green-lipped mussels, I couldn’t think of a better place to end a trip.
