We arrived @ Christchurch last Sat and currently in Queenstown. It has been raining e v e r y d a y since we arrived in NZ South island. We couldn't enjoy fully the sights, tours, etc For instance, yesterday we went for the Glenorchy/LOTR tour and has some nail biting experience when our vehicle tried to cross the swollen rivers. Finally we had to turn back as it would be dangerous if we proceed further.
We wanted to try the hot air balloon but no luck for the past 2 days and we'll be leaving for Mt Cook tomorrow. Disappointed and looking at the weather forecast for the next few days, looks like we'll leave NZ with wet & cold memories
