Here we go… Still on the way to Queenstown…
But we will detour to Mt. Cook first before heading to Queenstown.
Scenery along the way.
Stopped at somewhere, I don’t remember the name for a short photo opportunity.
Mt. Cook, the highest mountain of NZ, we’re almost there…
I’ve never thought to see such view with my own eyes!
We had lunch break here at The Hermitage Hotel. It’s rather luxurious.
Our lunch was at the hotel cafe. It’s the cheapest option.
We had salmon quiche (right) and egg and bacon quiche (middle) for lunch. NZD5.50 each. Salmon quiche was so salty! Not a good one. However, egg and bacon quiche was just nice.
The museum in the hotel.
Off we go again, now on the way to Queenstown. Goodbye Mt. Cook.
Had a short stop at a souvenier shop at I don’t-know-where! -.-” Didn’t pay attention at all, was on and off dozinng off in the bus.
Then we head to Cromwell for a short stop. You can see the famous Cromwell Fruit Sculpture here. We stopped at Jone’s Fruit Stall.
Fruits and ice cream! Yummy! Bought the ice cream for NZD2.50. It was Hokey Pokey, yum! I love it! Even though it’s commercial one, Tip Top brand, it tasted great! Didn’t try the real fruit ice cream because it was NZD5 ;p We’re too stingy.
Hokey pokey is a flavour of ice cream in New Zealand, consisting of plain vanilla ice cream with small, solid lumps of honeycomb toffee – known as “hokey pokey” in New Zealand.
After this stop, we continued with our journey to Queenstown.
