"I'm really trying to make it more than what it is
Cause everybody dies but not everybody lives.
Wish I could have this moment for life
Cause in this moment I just feel so alive"

Photo of the day JULY 3

Onsen Hot Pools, Queenstown
We had a fun night out Saturday and then had to get up early Sunday morning to catch our bus back to Dunedin. We got up on time and thought we were responsible by asking someone where the bus stop was and we even got there 20 minutes early... but as the story goes, we found out we were waiting at the wrong bus stop and by the time we realized this, it had been already half an hour since the bus was supposed to arrive. So there we were, two young American girls stuck in Queenstown with no plans at all... I think both of us were on the verge of tears haha but instead we pulled ourselves together, went to the information center, bought a new bus ticket (for monday now because all the sunday buses were full), and booked another night at a different hostel in town. We decided to make the best of our extra day and the lady helping us at the info center I think could tell we were stressed out by the situation and suggested we go to the hot pools. So after we checked in at our new place, we went up the Onsen Hot Pools and it was amazing! Basically this place is located in the mountains overlooking the Shotover River and you get this room that has this nice wooden hot pool/tub in it. Then there is a retractable wall, like a garage door, that you can raise up and you sit in the hot tub while looking out to a serene view. It was so relaxing and peaceful! Definitely a good way to turn a bad day into a good one! (The picture above is Sarah relaxing in our hot pool!)
