Wanaka to Milford Sound
in a very small plane.
The thought of a 14 hour round trip by coach to see milford sound did not sound all that appealing once the option of travelling in a very small aeroplane was discovered!!!
I sat next to the pilot in a 4 seater cessna with Jenny and Stuart Miller in the rear two seats just to confuse the tour operator, who was sure there had been a mistake with our surnames.
Flew over Wanaka and Shania Twains controversial new pad in the hills, the Dart valley, Mount Aspiring, the Avalanche Glacier and many more huge mountains, glacial features and hardly any other tiny buildings or signs of life on our 45 minute flight to Milford Sound.
What can i say..............................just look at the pictures, i am still blown away by the vastness and beauty of it all
