Queenstown


CIMG3845.JPG

Starting point for my trip. Known as the "adventure capital," it serves as a hub for bungie jumping, skydiving, etc. Hung out here in the Black Sheep hostel (known as "backpacker lodges" in New Zealand) for a few days. Ran into swarms of employees from Seagate a few times, as they were conducting their annual teamwork exercise thing (which seemed to mainly involve running around Queenstown on scavenger-like quests).

Routeburn Track


3794-3795.jpg

Walked roughly one-third (that is, one day's worth of a 3-day track) of one of New Zealand's "Great Walks." Slightly lesser-known than the Milford Track, but generally held in similar esteem by those who have actually walked both.

Milford


CIMG3876.JPG

Milford Sound (possibly the waterfall capital of the world, in terms of quantity) and related areas (the Chasm, part of the Hollyford Track..). Note that it is actually not a sound, but rather a fjord. The explanation given was that nobody could tell the difference when it was named. It was raining the whole time (it rains close to 200 days of the year), but that contributed to the waterfalls.

Fox Glacier


CIMG3988.JPG

Flew in on a helicopter for a few hours of glacier exploration. Sadly, none of us fell into a crevasse and had to climb out like on "Man Vs. Wild."
