Milford Sound makes you feel like: what is Earth & am I even on it right now?
I know you probably thought I wasn't going to finish my New Zealand series, but you're wrong. I'm still trudging along.
We flew from a town outside of Queenstown on a teeny tiny Sesna. The ride was rough, but the views were fantastic.
Usually the sound is cloudy and rainy, and you need to bring a tourist poncho or a rain jacket. We were lucky and it was perfectly sunny.
When you're on the water, it gets suuuuper windy, so it's good to have a windbreaker. Also, hold on to your glove. This is how I lost mine.
Was it worth it? The trip definitely hurt my wallet, but the experience was breathtaking.
