The group caught a BBQ bus at around 7am to prepare for a tour of an area of New Zealand called Milford Sound. A sound is a like a fjord which is like a long, narrow inlet with steep sides or cliffs, created in a valley carved by glacial activity. I know you are probably asking what the hell is a BBQ bus but that is easily explained. Our tour bus had a bbq grill behind it that is used to cook lunch. Cheesy I know and you’d think that it would bring down the experience but you’d be wrong. We made a lunch stop at an awesome area on a picture perfect day and I’d say it was as close to paradise as I’ve come. Our guide was also very knowledgeable of the area and did a good job of explaining various scenes. We also spent about 6 hours on a bus driving through vast open areas of hills and mountains where there were thousands of sheep and cattle. There is no point to describe what we saw in words at the sound so I’ll just let the pictures do the talking. For some reason I also can’t remember what we did for the evening but nothing sticks out to me as being spectacular. This was a long day that led to an early night.
