It was surreal being back in Queenstown after six years. So many business had changed since I lived here, but it still had the same feel to the town that I loved. I was really excited to show Chris everything! When we got into town we still had some time on our rental car so we drove up to the hotel at the base of Coronet Peak where I used to work. Then we drove an hour out to Glenorchy. It's a beautiful drive that follows the edge of Lake Wakatipu and there's a lookout point about halfway that could be our favorite in NZ. Glenorchy is a cute small town right on the edge of Paradise, a privately owned land trust where parts of Lord of the Rings is filmed.
