Valentine's Day in Queenstown

Since Queenstown is all about adventure and adrenaline-pumping activities (and I was unsuccessful at convincing Paul to skydive or bungy jump), on Valentine's Day we went on the Shotover Jet..."The World's Most Exciting Jet Boat Ride."

They made us wear these butcher jackets - sexy

Waving hello to the cameras

We went as fast as 80 kilometers and got as close as 30 millimeters to the canyon!

It was exhilarating - especially when we did 360 degree turns!

See how narrow the canyon is?

After an exciting morning, we headed to the Skyline Gondolas for a ride up and a (not so good) buffet lunch.


A pretty steep climb

It was a bit wobbly but not too bad of a ride up

Made it to the top!

Another look down of the city and of the gondolas

On our walk back to the room, we passed by the "Icon"
