Queenstown, New Zealand - #AtoZtravel

Tuesday, November 18, 2014

This post celebrates the breathtaking scenery and adventurous spirit of my country of birth - New Zealand.

Alas Queenstown, also known as the 'Adventure Capital of New Zealand' is the place to visit if you want to experience some Lord of the Rings vistas, and then challenge yourself to an adrenaline pumping, spine tingling, daring extreme sport such as bungy jumping, paragliding, jet-boating, mountain biking, white water rafting or sky diving - just because!

Or, if you're a bit more like me and slightly risk adverse there is also some fantastic wine tasting to be enjoyed in the Queenstown area - with many wineries having stunning mountain and water views.

The ultimate Queenstown challenge? Doing a bungy jump of course!
