5 sleeps to go!

Yes only 5 sleeps til we are back in New Zealand! I cannot believe a year has passed since I have been in beautiful Queenstown.

We will only be over for 12 night this trip. It was the only way I could convince my 17 year old to come along! Still 12 nights is better than nothing.

We will be flying into Christchurch (love the midnight arrival flight!) and heading of to Lake Tekapo for the second night. The girls just love ice skating in the open at the Winter Park there. It is just magical. I might even give it a go this time.

Then off to the beautiful Queenstown. We are staying 5 nights near Arrowtown this time. Normally I insist on Lake Views, but to be honest, after trying almost every 5 star place in town (with 3 bedrooms), I just couldn't find anywhere that really took my fancy, so a house in the country it is.

Just to ensure I don't fret too much, on missing my Lake and Remarkables view, we are also spending 3 nights at the newly completed Rees right on the Lake.

To top it all off, we are spending our last 2 nights at Terrace Downs in the shadow on Mt Hutt. We spent a few nights there last year and it was just so serene and peaceful. A perfect way to end a holiday.

Hopefully next year I will get to spend all of winter in Queenstown - that is our plan. We have trained staff and if all runs well this time, we should be able to spend more time in New Zealand next year. You never know, you may soon see another Funky Fabrix popping up in Queenstown some time soon!
