Quick update! We didn’t land in Queenstown because of weather. So we flew south and landed in Invercargill. Unfortunately, we are now on a bus driving 2.5 hours back north to Queenstown. Not my favorite form of travel, but it will get us there.
Lots of sheep and farmland so far. It also requires a quick turn around to get ready for our hike tomorrow, which begins at 6:30 am.
Our unlocked phone has come in handy and we made the necessary calls to the travel agent, trekking company and local hiking store
Oh well! Pretty mild I guess as problems go.
Your basic 3 hour trip took 12!
