Since accepting the position, day one seemed to take forever to arrive! All that excitement and anticipation. Moving to Queenstown was not only a career decision, but a lifestyle choice - and who wouldn't want to be in one of the most beautiful and adventurous towns in New Zealand!?!?
And we sure did kick it off with some adventure!
The boat ride gave us a great introduction to the area and the history behind it. From the naming of the Shotover River to the Legend of the Lake. We also enjoyed some disk-golf at the (quite steep hill course) Queenstown Gardens and an introduction to geo-caching. It was a great way to get to know the team and begin building those ever important relationships.
We even became famous!
