New Zealand: Days 12-13

Carrying on in the South Island, we made an overnight pitstop in the small town of Twizel so that M could go to another Lord of the Rings tour. While he was exploring Pelennor Fields I took advantage of free wifi at the town's bakeshop and sat in the sunshine while the little one slept on my chest. Once the tour was finished we took a drive from Twizel to Te Anau, and from there onto Milford Sound. This is technically a fjord, not a sound, and one of NZ's most famous tourist destinations and also a World Heritage site.

There is only one long windy road that goes in and out of Milford Sound but it's definitely worth the trek. We took a Mitre Peak boat cruise and it's probably my favourite thing we did in all of New Zealand. So gorgeous. And now for way too many pictures:
We took an early morning cruise and it was very chilly! There's a baby in there somewhere!
Even Kymani made the trip!
After enjoying Milford Sound we took the coastal drive to Queenstown, which is sort of like the village of Whistler. I kinda loved it there.
We asked for a recommendation for lunch and were told to visit Fergburger.
ZOMG so good. We ate there twice of course.
Bear with me, I'm almost done the New Zealand recaps. Two more posts to go! Then we can move on to more Little m :)


  1. You must have gone from being warm to being cold quite often. Did you always have to have a sweater or jacket handy? I love your pictures. I think I would really like to go to NZ some day.

  2. No wonder everyone loves New Zealand - its very Canadian looking!

  3. seriously gorgeous destination!
