Here were are, a few days into our trip in New Zealand. So far, we have just been in one town – Queenstown. Queenstown is very pretty, but geared towards a more adventure loving breed of person. We are not very “extreme”, but we did manage to go on a helicopter ride 6,000 ft. in the air yesterday. We went over lakes, rivers, even landed on a glacier and stepped out to take some pictures. I’ll post some of those once I get my film back. I was scared out of my mind, but now I can cross that one off my list of things I never felt the need to do, but have now done. I’m just glad we survived. Honestly, it was pretty amazing. Today, I get to unleash the 4×5. I’m hoping for a great picture of sheep. If I’m lucky, maybe even a cow or too as well.
