When asked in what way show my tour of the country, replied that seek to contrast the nature that characterizes New Zealand, with the city life.It’s time to make that contrast, and took a flight to travel from north islandto south island, which has one of the most attractive tourist centers in the country: Queenstown.
In less than an hour my eyes went to see a completely different landscape and New Zealand showed me that in one country one can get to live two totally opposite types of experiences. With fresh images of the city of Wellington in my head, now I was looking through the window of the plane a completely new and beginning this contrast that both figured in Buenos Aires.
I was told the Queenstown airport is considered one of the most beautiful in the world and reached me off the plane to stay impressed with what I saw (to the point that I delayed the line of people who came behind me and tried to get off the plane) . It seemed that this had landed in the middle of a mountain. I recommend traveling on the left side of the group that takes you from the airport to the center of Queenstown (the fare is about 8 dollars). On this trip can enjoy great scenery and have a first impression of the place unique.
The first thing I did when I got to the village of Queenstown was going to try the hamburgers known as Fedburgers . They say they are the best in the country and that the line to get one can get to the street. That disappointment I got when I realized I was all these years of my life without trying something. With a well-cooked meat and tomato sauce instead of ketchup, these exceptional size burgers are unlike any you’ve tried before.
It is difficult to move after eating something but before finishing the day I decided to walk a little around the village and learn more about this pleasant place, which at times reminds me of my beloved Bariloche. I could not help entering the Remarkable Sweet Shop and take some pictures to this little “candy store” while people around me tasted from chocolates to lollipops.
Last Saturday started the ski season in Queenstown and as you walk down the street can see people carrying their equipment or buying hats and gloves to climb the mountain. Just spent a few hours, and I can not wait to continue hearing about this place where you can breathe fresh air and enjoy a landscape surrounded by mountains.

I love Queenstown! The minute I saw your first photograph, I was reminded of how it felt to be there (I was there in late fall, so it looked quite the same).
