We got up really early to do the Milford Sound tour & were really excited. Unfortunately the tour group couldn’t pick us up from our Hotel & we had to walk 1 & a half km’s down to the bus stop to get picked up. Getting soaked in the process. We got comfortable on the Bus & halfway to town the Bus driver announces “sorry folks the road to Milford Sound is snowed under and the tour is cancelled!”. It was a shame that we had to shuffle around plans, and reschedule the tour to the next day.
De Ja Vu when the alarm went of early the next day, and it was dark & cold outside. At least it wasn’t raining. Yesterday we were full of beans, but today we were pretty tired. Serena slept the afternoon yesterday. Foolishly I went for a hike up the hills behind the hotel & boy were they steep.
10 km’s of torturous hiking left me with shin splints today & I was really feeling it.
The delayed trip was worth the wait. The Coach trip was great with incredible views. We stopped off a couple of times & there was always a Kodak moment to be had.
The snow that ruined our day yesterday made today magical. The sky was blue and we got to see Snow.
I’ve only ever been to the snow a handful of times, & only once have I seen a decent amount of Snow.
This Snow was all fluffy and powdery and we were loving it.
Serena wanted a photo of Snow flying in the air in front of her and asked me to throw some Snow towards her. Think you can guess what happened……
I’m not allowed to touch my bike for the week. I can tell you it was pure torture to see the amazing climb in & out of Milford Sound and don’t get to climb it.
I can’t remember much of the return trip as exhaustion then motion sickness set in. I felt like throwing up much of the return trip which was a bit of a blur.
