Merino Minnie in Queenstown

Merino Minnie in Queenstown

Queenstown, South Island, New Zealand

Have just had a trip to Queenstown compliments of NZ's most popular sparkling wine LINDAUER.  We went for the Winter Festival which included the famous Lindauer Masquerade Ball and lots of other events.  The weather was sunny and temperatures were between -3 degrees Celcius and about 4-5 degrees during the day - in other words, bloody freezing!!  Here are the pics: 

The view from our hotel the night we arrived - beautiful!Queenstown views

Looking very stylish accessorising Merino Minnie scarves with Shotover jet clothing, still below 0°. Shotover jet Queenstown

Going up the gondola.  Very steep and a wee bit of snow and ice.

At the top and product testing the new merino slouchy armwarmers - yes they are warm but I would like to go inside now.merino gloves

And how else would you keep the outdoor furniture warm enough to sit on????
