I have been in Queenstown for one week now. What a transition after many weeks in the nature. This highly touristic town is THE spot for all adrenaline lovers, and party people. The world first bungee jump site has been built here, followed by all kind of extreme sports and activities: (ski, bungee, skydive, paragliding, canyoning, mountain bike, dirt, wakeboard, and many many more…). This town has also many cool late bars, a very busy nightlife at any day of the week. It feels like all the travelers, after weeks or months of traveling around the country, are going crazy once they get to Queenstown. So did I.
Unfortunately, this place is very expensive, and i cant afford any of the very tempting activities for now. I just have been walking around, tried the dirt jump park with Tjark (he came down to Queenstown for 3 days before leaving the country), and went partying, of course.
Im actually staying at a big hostel, and i’m working for accommodation since my first day here. 3 hours housekeeping a day for a free bed. Fair enough. I also have been looking for a job here, but it is apparently easier to get hired when the winter season starts. This might be an option by then.
For now, I’m just enjoying my time and might stay for one more week, I’ll check the job options and decide later where I’m heading next. Just takin’ it easy.
