new zealand: day 7

happy valentines day!
an insanely early start for our trek to milford sound. it's about a 2 hour drive and we have a cruise to catch at 9am. we stop lots and lots for photos cause we simply cannot believe our eyes. we had perfect weather for a cruise.

that's how we roll.

friends, meet milford sound. i recommend a valentine cruise through milford sound on a perfectly sunny day with blue skies and whispy white clouds. it's a good time. then we were off to catch our helicopter. [would anybody like to pinch me?] we landed on tutoko glacier. i don't even know if there are words to describe. it was totally tubular. how's that? but really, it was absolutely amazing.

love, love, love my valentine.
on the drive home j couldn't resist the streams, so we stopped for some fishing. no complaints from the crew...we simply took in the views. i just wanted to run and sing at the top of my lungs, 'the hills are alive with the sound of music.'

then we hiked to sutherland falls, the tallest waterfall in new zealand.

since we didn't have enough excitement for one day, someone [i won't mention any names] left the lights on and crackhead carina died. so for about an hour and a half we ran around looking for someone, anyone who could give us a jump. we only asked like a million billion people. lucky for us, someone got pulled and we finallyyyy got a jump from the police.


  1. what an awesome way to spend valentine's day! :)

  2. i think tubular sums it up pretty well. and i think that picture of justin fishing is pretty tubular. and you should have run around singing and had someone film it. would have been the best video eva.
