My trip to Queenstown and surroundings - July 2012

I have just come back from spending 1 week in Queenstown (NZ) and it was overall a good holiday as I got to explore more new places since my previous visit last year.

Of course Queenstown is still being swamped by undesirable trash people from a couple of well known countries which I shall not name here and the locals are truly sick of it.

Despite this it is still possible to have a wonderful time by avoiding those people.

This looks like a charming city and it looks very interesting in conjunction with the scenery. I'm looking forward seeing your updates.

Neither can I and I really need to change that. There is a Snowplanet in Auckland with snow 365 days of the year and they train newbies - why I haven't been yet is beyond me. Your latest batch of pics are real keepers - they are amazing !. Thanks for the well wishes and now for more pics - I do hope that you have more

Thought so, I had the same experience up at Cardrona ski field - little twits pissed out of their minds at 11 in the morning poking fun at everybody they encountered - a cliff would have been to good for them Thanks again for all the pics

Fantastic photos. The area around Queenstown was definitely one of the highlights of my trip to NZ last year as well. It also looks like you were really lucky with the weather when visiting the Milford Sound.
