This week’s theme is Favourite Part of NZ. I have been calling New Zealand home for almost 9 years now and I truly love it here. This country is so beautiful and it’s also filled with lovely people. I’ve lived in Auckland ever since and I could’ve easily picked this city.
Queenstown is absolutely beautiful. I don’t think you can take a bad photo of the place. Everywhere I looked is photogenic. I was amazed that I live in such an amazing country and I want to share with you the best parts of our Queenstown holiday.
Towards the left of our hotel is the Queenstown Gardens. I love this place. I woke up early every day and walked by myself. It was so serene in the morning and I loved having the time to clear my head, relax and enjoy the view. It was a great way to start the day.
We wanted to check an ice bar so we went to Below Zero. It was a great experience. We played ice air hockey on the table and chilled. Haha
We also had great food. There are so many food choices in Queenstown and for our first night we opted for fine dining. I could make a separate post for the food places/restaurants we’ve tried alone because they were all good.
If you have a sweet tooth like me, you have to go to The Remarkable Sweet Shop. They have one right in town and also in the airport. I basically tried all the flavours as I went in every day. I didn’t buy anything during our holiday except for fudge and lollies from this store. They’re so good! They’re also great to take home for friends and family.
You basically get a private room with a hot tub and you have the option to put the roof up and enjoy the view. This was just pure bliss. It was a last minute decision to go here but it was the perfect end to our actual anniversary since we flew to/from Milford Sound that morning.
There are so many other things I could say and recommend but this post is photo-heavy already. We didn’t just go to Queenstown either. We drove to Arrowtown and Wanaka and then flew to Milford Sound which are also amazing places. Milford Sound is a whole different level because we had an experience of a lifetime there but I’ll save that story for next time. Let me know if you’re interested to know more about our trip. I might end up doing a travel series on this blog.
I hope you enjoyed this post. This just made me want to go back so badly. Queenstown is such a special place and I’m so lucky I live in this country.
