On to the south
After arriving in Queenstown most people stay there for a few nights to explore the capital of adrenalin.
The only adrenalin I was interested in was to see if I could get back my hat. The one I left behind at Hotwater beach.
And wonder over wonders the hostel had kept my Postbag and I got to be reunited with my hat. Yeah!
So I had everything to continue my trip further south. Instead of doing this leg in 3 days I had decided to take 7 days. With extra days in the 2 stops Dunedin and Invernargill.
This trip was an extra to my bus pass with KiwiExperience and was executed by the “Bottom Bus” from a company called “Travel Headfirst”. Being an extra meant that after having a full bus of 54 people going into Queenstown we were only 6 people moving on.
Queenstown is surrounded by mountains. And as mountains go sometimes to go south you have to go north.
So we went back to Cromwell past a house relocation and the old gold digger huts.
On past the Clutha River / Mate-Au which they dammed to generate more electrical power for the South Island.
The cloud I saw on that trip somehow reminded me of Beethoven. Or Schubert? I’m not sure.
The next stop was Clyde a small town in the electorate of Dunstan that kept the old buildings intact and has a nice charm to it.
So it was a very nice stop. And I think definitely worth a few photos.
