Alarm sounded at dawn. We got up, got our stuff together and were the first ones in to the breakfast area. At 7 our buss for Milford Sound and Fiordland departured. It was a 5hour bustrip out to the boat in Milford. After half the trip the scenery got breathtaking.
Then we boarded the boat in Milford Sound and had a very nice Japaneese Obento lunch. Up on deck we got to see some of the most beutiful fjords in the world. It was amazing. Waterfalls and snow covered moutain tops mixed with greenery and furseals.
When the 2 hour boat ride was over, we had two choices. Either we take the five hour bus trip back, or you take one of the taxies. We oppted for the taxi, which was by far the most expensive cabride I ever had. The busdriver dropped us at the Hellipad where Scott got us settled in the hellicopter who took us on an hour long flight back over middle earth to Queenstown. With a little stop up on the glaciers in the snow.
Then we had dinner at a nice italian restaurant. And yet again an early night, since our bus to Christchurch was leaving at 7 the following morning.
