South Island Part 1 // Queenstown & Wanaka (And a Giveaway Winner!)

Well we are back from our trip!
I've got tons of photos to sort through, so I thought I'd share them in different posts.
I'll start off with Part One : Queenstown & Wanaka!
We absolutely LOVED both towns.
They're both surrounded by amazing mountains and lakes.
And both have the cutest little cafes, restaurants, shops, and things to do.

So if you're not up for scrolling through lots of holiday photos, you should probably stop here ;)
 








 


 







We found so many amazing places to eat and things to do!
I definitely recommend hitting up these two towns if you're traveling through NZ.
There are so many tourists around, you fit right it when you're cheesin' it up being touristy.
We rode bikes, ate lots of sweets, drank coffee, rode up the gondola & did the luge in Queenstown,
and just had a good ol' time shopping and chatting and laughing while we explored these towns.

Hope you enjoyed! I've got some more photos to share in the next few days!
And if any of you are traveling to Queenstown or Wanaka, I've got lots of recommendations for ya ;)

Oh, and I've got a winner for the Shabby Apple giveaway! Congrats to Amy!
