On Sunday (aug 31), Whit dragged me out of my sick bed (after basically packing for me the night before) and we headed to the airport for our South Island adventure! I don't know if you can tell from the first photo, but I still wasn't totally well. Thank God I was feeling a ton better, though! I slept through the flight and woke up to gorgeous snow-capped mountain views out the window. I did a double take as I awoke. Because it was that beautiful. Unbelievable.
We drove the short drive into Queenstown after picking up our Jucy rental car and found a cute little restaurant for lunch. While eating we didn't waste any time and booked a horse back ride through the mountains.
