    Pub Crawl & Just About to Bungy!

    April 3, 2019 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    We arrived in Queenstown yesterday without incident. I bought some cold weather socks and a new pair of hiking pants that actually fit me. Then I did laundry. Clean clothes are so nice.

    The bar at the hostel, Loco, arranged a pub crawl for 15 of us. What an awesome night, and the Hash House Harriers prepared me well! First we got a meal then shots for making strikes or spares in Wii bowling, which I didn't get. I got everything else, though!!

    Our second place was at the Up Bar, where we did karaoke. I kicked it off with Heartache Tonight by Eagles. We were joined by a couple of Americans, one of whom had a plastic trombone. He and I did Oh Darlin' by The Beatles. Too fun! The four of us who did songs each won $25 NZD bar tab at Loco.

    Our third stop was to the Minus 5° Ice Bar (23°F). I won another $50 NZD bar tab for not wearing a coat the entire time (about 30 minutes) and a free ice shot for being the first one to get down to their skivvies (I had on a sports bra and shorts).

    Our final stop before going back to Loco was to The London, a pizza and beer joint. We had a 4-on-4 boat race (down a pint if beer as fast as you can). My team won bragging rights!

    Once we got back to Loco, I activated my $75 bar tab and bought drinks for everyone. Sweet as! Great night, and I was still in bed before midnight!

    This morning I checked in for my trip to Nevis Bungy & Swing, the creators of bungy jumping. Right now, we're in the basket on our way make the highest bungy jump in NZ at 134 meters/439 feet!!! Eek!!

    So long [for now] and thanks for all the fish. ✌️

    Nevis Swing

    March 13, 2017 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 10 °C

    Ganz ohne Adrenalin-Kick konnten wir Queenstown doch nicht verlassen. Wir haben den Nevis Swing gemacht, die weltweit größte Schaukel, mit 70m Freifall und 300m Schwung durchs Tal. Einfach nur der Hammer!

    Nevis Swing

    November 26, 2017 in New Zealand ⋅ 🌙 23 °C

    Mal als Abwechslung zum wandern haben Juli und ich uns den Nevis Swing gegönnt. Dabei "schaukelt" man ca. 100m überm Canyon, womit der Nevis Swing der größte der Welt ist. Eigentlich wollte ich es ganz normal machen so wie Juli, hab mich dann aber spontan dazu entschieden mich kopfüber in die Schaukel zu hängen und bereu es nicht. War echt ein mega krasses Gefühl. 💯Read more
