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. However, the boyfriend and I went to Queenstown for our anniversary last year and I think I left a piece of my heart there.
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 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.
