Recently I’ve been adding some posts from our earlier trips to New Zealand. So far I have covered off on our road trip to Wanaka from Christchurch, our road trip from Wanaka to Queenstown and Milford Sound with kids. We decided that we wanted to do something considered a little extreme while in the extreme capital of the world, the Shotover Jet was a far as I would go!

Milford Sound

When we took the kids to New Zealand, Craig was very keen to take us all to Milford Sound. He had been before a few years back but the kids and I had not been there. Its a long drive from Queenstown to Milford Sound but one Craig thought was worth making.

If you have been following this blog you will have seen an earlier post explaining that I have some good friends in New Zealand that I met in London on my solo trip in 1994! They told me you can’t be in Wanaka and not go to Queenstown. 

I have two very good friends in New Zealand that I met while backpacking over 20 years ago. Twice in the last few years I’ve made the 8 hour road trip from Christchurch to Wanaka on the South Island of New Zealand to visit them.
