Traveling Nancy

Traveling around the world as far as I can go.

Queenstown 11/20

As we left Te Anau this morning there was a rainbow.

Driving on the left side of the road has become much easier.  I drove all the way to Queenstown.  I stopped at the viewpoints.

The drive was beautiful.

We dropped off off our car at the place we are staying.  How nice to see that we will have a great view.img_2761

Queenstown is pretty touristy.  We walked around the town for a while.  I was looking for a shop that carried merino possum hats because my friend, Gerta, had asked me to try to find one to replace the one she lost.  Success!  But, alas, it was also a yarn shop.  So now I own enough merino possum wool to make a shall when I get home.

After eating lunch we found an ice-cream shop and I tried Hokey Pokey Gelato in a cone.  It was better than in Te Anau.  Then  Jan and I walked along the lake for a while. How nice to get away from the crowds in town.

We bought groceries and walked back to the Pinewood where we are staying.  It is very nice here.  Each floor has its own kitchen area for every 4 rooms and a deck.

We did laundry, ate dinner, and got organized for tomorrow.  I was a bit frustrated with my computer because it won’t connect to the internet. I couldn’t reach Apple tech support tonight. I am glad that I have my iPad mini with me but it has been more difficult to get this post done tonight.  Time to sleep.

Traveling has been a passion of Nancy Panitch's life and she loves seeing how people in other cultures live. Her travels have taken her to many places within the United States, Asia, Europe, South America, and Africa. Being around people inspires her and she has much gratitude for the kindred Souls that are joining together with her in body, mind, and heart. She moved from Chicago to Portland, Oregon in 1982. It was one of the best decisions of her life. While in Portland she stays very, VERY busy. She volunteers (Inter-Religious Action Network, Human Rights Council, & ushering for various theaters); attends a Unitarian Universalist church; goes hiking with groups (Cascade Prime Timers & Trails Club of Oregon) and also with individual friends. Book groups, movie group, and bridge groups occupy her time as well. Her quiet activities include yoga, knitting, Sudoku, and reading. She enjoys all of these activities, but making time to see her wonderful 4 grandchildren takes priority over it all. She is happy to share this blog and hopes to encourage others to travel.
