Rosario – Extraordinary Queenstown

Extraordinary

As the title says today in Queenstown was extraordinary. Totally out of the ordinary. Nothing that I ever thought I would or I would have the chance to meet. 

We went early in the morning in a gondola, Skyline company of Queenstown, which took us to the top of the mountain where we could see the view of the city. Katie, who is in charge of all activities, we waited with 5 passes to tumble a  luge.  ‘ve never seen anything like that but, without doubt, the most entertaining way to see the city. Nothing observatory. In Queenstown people enjoy down the mountain landscape in a kind of car that you regulate yourself with your hands.

I thought after that can do no better and could not live in the mountains with more adrenaline. I was wrong. We walked to a place where the Zip Trek company offers, with two guides were friendly, know the mountain flying. If, hooked to a harness, you jump in between the trees and volas at full speed while enjoying the view of Lake Wakitapu. Watch the video!

To end the activity of the day, I went to the famous Ice Bar known asMinus 5 . I had heard about this place and even saw Marley, as he travels the world in one of these bars. Queenstown has one and its great staff handles give the coat, hat and gloves appropriate to the temperature at which you’re up against: nearly minus 8 degrees below zero. Everything in there is frozen. Riquisimos Including drinks served in ice glasses. 

The three ways that Queenstown chose to spent my last day was really unexpected. He knew the names of the activities but never thought to visit a place like this. You could say today really I stood in the role of tourist and lived my last day in Queenstown in an unusual way.
