Location: Queenstown to Milford Sounds, New Zealand

MapAfter the yummy cooked breakfast we headed to the Fiords and had a luch break in the town Te Anau on the shores of one of New Zelands many large glacial carved lakes. We stopped to admire the reflection at Mirror lake and fantastic views down Hollyford Valley, Chasm walk and drive through Homer tunnel and then emerged back into a landscape of spectacular mountians and waterfalls. Took loads of amazing photos. We ended our drive at Milford Sound and spend the evening crusing around the sound taking in the lanscape all around us and watched dophins and seals swimming around us. I took a jet boat ride around the sounds to get closer to the rocks and almost got eaten alive by sand flies. Had a fantastic dinner on the boat followed by pavalova. We spent the evening on the deck drinking wine and went it got dark went inside and played connect four. Spent the night on the boat sleeping in the cabins.
