When I first heard that I'm gonna visit Queenstown besides Melbourne, I was.. not that excited? I didn't hear much about the city. Yes I knew about New Zealand and its beauty, but Queenstown seemed strange to me. However, I gotta say that what I had in mind was sooo different to what it was. Queenstown was 1000 times more beautiful!
That day, Queenstown journey was hung up because our flight was diverted to Christchurch due to bad weather. Wind was blowing strongly, our plane was shaking. At first, it was just a normal ups and downs, but it's getting worse. Some people on the plane even puke and screamed.
However, we were grateful that our flight was rerouted because the journey from Christchurch to Queenstown was one of the best things in our trip. It took around 6 hours to reach Queenstown. We rented a van and discovered some of New Zealand's most spectacular scenery; icy mountains, idyllic rural scenes, grazing cows and sheeps, surreal blue lakes and rivers. Everything was picture perfect, the pictures I took look like postcards. Even the night sky didn't disappoint. I had never seen as many stars as I did there. Sitting outside and looking up at the millions of stars was a wonderful way to end the day.
In Queenstown, there's this street where you will find a row of unusual letter boxes. There were around 50 of them. I believe each letter box represents the owner's interest or occupation.
