My mum and dad left to go to Auckland and then back to the UK. It was lovely and we will miss them both.Weather in New Zealand seems to be getting a bit better. Last week broke records for being the wettest for this time of year – at the same time the UK is the coldest and Melbourne is the hottest – weird.
We now have a fancy apartment in Queensland – lovely. (Below is what it looks like in ski season)
Been enjoying the TV particularity like the @7o’clock which is quite entertaining. We walked up the hill overlooking Queenstown where the gondola (above) goes up and then did the luge – below
The luge looks a bit tame but it is actually pretty cool.
Then next day we went to the nearby town of Arrowtown and old gold mining town (Queenstown and the surrounding towns we ,like a number of rural Melbourne towns built on gold). It is also the home of one of the first hydroelectric plants in the world – build to provide power for the mines and the town.
Today our final day in Queenstown we will be going on a jet boat around the lake. and then we will drive up some mountains to try to see the tops of some clouds
