NZ- Day 6

Yesterday I decided I needed to get out of Queenstown and explore the rest of NZ in the little amount of time I had- Thankfully NZ has these little travel-planning spots called i-SITES! I went in the shop, told them I wanted to go somewhere else… and they recommended the ‘Bottom Bus‘ small group tour!


The first leg today was from Queenstown to Dunedin- We got there fairly late in the day, had a small tour of the city, and went to the “world’s steepest street!”

“The slope of Baldwin Street is approximately 1:2.86 (19° or 35%) – that is, for every 2.86 metres travelled horizontally, the elevation rises by 1 metre.”

People run up this thing… ugh!

One last look!

“In November 2009, three men were charged with disorderly behaviour and dangerous driving after taking rides in a chilly bin (a cooler) being towed behind a car down Baldwin St. One of them said it was because the bars had shut and they had nothing to do.”

I love this country!

O! Heres a couple other randoms:

Teletubbie ice cream!

The University kids like to tip over cars and burn couches….

I told our driver/tour guide he had a ‘Jew fro’…. but he didn’t get it… lol

A professional pic is below of the same place- see the mountain in the background?

I stole this pic from a website- but its really this beautiful!


I also went to see a movie in Dunedin at the Regent Theatre… I saw the “Invention of Lying” – It was so-so…
