Ah, Doubtful Sound, sand fly Mecca of New Zealand!
Here, we spent a very rainy evening in a school-camp style hostel in the middle of the rainforest. After we got over the initial misery of the place – We have to put our own sheets on the bed? Why won’t it stop raining? – we settled into a really nice night eating birthday cake and watching What We Do in the Shadows, wearing some very stylish matching PJ sets provided by the staff.
I’ve only really got GoPro photos from this section of the trip, but it’s definitely worth putting them up because the guided kayak we did the next morning was breathtaking.
I’ve definitely never been anywhere like Fiordland National Park before.
The low hanging cloud made the place feel like something out of Avatar.
Totally worth the sand fly bites.
