Lost count of the scoops we had! Love the rich dark chocolate and cookies and cream flavours from this local NZ brand, only present in Queenstown and Wanaka!
Enjoyed the intimate size of the heli-glacier hike we did, which makes the whole experience a very cool (pun intended) one!
Quite possibly the bluest water we have seen! The glacier water was freezing, else we would have taken the plunge from the bridge into the water. Need to count on sunny days to get that refraction of light!
Devilish burger. Tried Devil's Burger and found it to be pretty good as well, as an alternative to the world famous Ferg Burger here in Queenstown!
Walking through the blue glacier ice is one of the most amazing experiences for us in NZ! Learnt quite a good deal during our hike tour, and one interesting fact is that the glacier moves approximately one metre each day. More snippets of the action from our heli-hike experience in our previous video post.
Our first heli-glacier hike! All kinds of thrills from the helicopter ride, to the glacier walk and getting wet in the icy glacier water. If you only have budget and time for one unique experience in New Zealand, this is our top recommendation!
Our kind of late lunch in Wanaka! Freshly made scones and Fish & Chips at Edgewater Hotel, before we headed off for wine tasting at the vineyards!
Jumping off to a new week! Castle Hill in Nz simply puts the Stonehenge in the UK to shame. Still pretty amazed by the random and sheer size of the stones formation here. Have a great week all!
The most over-hyped tree in the world? It has to be That Wanaka Tree. Still, glad we took a stroll close to sunset to join the other avid photographers for this fleeting moment. No regrets!
What’s your favourite steak cut? We tried JSH in Queenstown and had some good quality NZ cuts like the Taupo Eye Fillet and Wakanui Sirloin. Very centrally located in the heart of the city!
Wanaka, finally! How are all the lakes in NZ so blue and surrounded by vast mountain ranges? We hiked up the relatively easy Mt Iron for a view of the town, which is relatively small compared to Queenstown, less the obvious touristy vibes.
Onsen for life! So we booked this onsen place before our trip and we were glad we did, especially when the weather was slightly chilly. One hour of private suite with wine and ice-cream, and a view of Shotover River no less. The best remedy after a strenuous hike!
Pulled Pork Benedict with a view of the lake, snow capped mountains and free roaming ducks at this lovely cafe in Queenstown! We can't do alfresco dining in Singapore due to the humidity so we took every opportunity to do so in NZ. Loving this blue life so far, while it lasts!
Always nice to slow down the pace of life! This also goes to show that once you are at the top, the only way is downhill. Happy weekends, world!
