Nobody can resist this quaint and compact alpine town. That includes me.

Seeing one or the other is nice. Doing both is even better!

It’s the one thing my Auckland Airbnb hosts said I *had* to do when I got to Queenstown.

Let’s go for a stroll!

It’s this tiny town’s biggest tourist draw — a 12km long glacier.

I thought that the pancake rocks were pretty incredible. And then I saw this.

Enjoy stacks and stacks of beautiful rock formations … with a side of pancakes!

New Zealand beach and bush — I got the best of both worlds in this spectacular day trip.

A Welly good time complete with Mount Victoria, the Weta Workshop … and a surprise reunion.

A beautiful hike, more turquoise water … and Mount Doom?
