LOVE IS IN THE AIR AT ROMER: WILD HEARTS X ROMER GIVEAWAY ENGAGEMENT
Wildhearts and Romer collaborated deliver a fantastic assortment of new experiences for one lucky couple to enjoy. A number of Queenstown local businesses contributed to making this couples Anniversary weekend exceptional but no one guessed what surprise they had for us.
I wanted to organise a trip around our 9 year anniversary, so booked a 6 day trip around that weekend; utilising the provided Sherwood Accomodation for the first half, and an Airbnb for the second half.
Sherwood was charming; very eco-conscious design, with great details on the sources and history of specific room features.
The Good Glamping company and Lavish Grazing Co delivered a beautiful lakeside platter at Sunshine Bay; we had a number of new foods to try; and more than enough cheeses; I think we were able to skip dinner that day; they delivered a fantastic vegetarian selection that we picked away at for hours while enjoying the sun and views.
The next day we did a tandem bungee at AJ Hackett Bungey , visited Arrowtown and caught up with my parents who were coincidentally nearby attending the Gibbston Valley Concert. Having never bungee jumped before; it was thrilling, and over in a flash! I’d be keen to try more similar things; this prize was a fantastic opportunity to try something I wouldn’t have otherwise done. Later that day we tried Disc Golf at the 18 hole Botanical Gardens course; there was room for improvement.
The next day it rained; so we found indoor entertainment in the form of Ten Pin Bowling at Arthur’s Point. For dinner we went to Bazaar; which was a gourmet buffet experience with multiple distinct dishes; a separate desserts bar, Asian wok fried options and dumplings, pizza, cheeses and crackers, all free to attack at your preference. We were thinking of going there for a few breakfasts instead of the dinner, but the dinner was very highly recommended, and I’m glad we chose to do that. A great view of the lake, with a number of very unique cocktails.
Anniversary Day! 20th January. Today we had arranged our Ferrari 911 hire car to drive out to Wanaka. It was a very fun car to drive; compact and responsive, and very classy. TheLavendar Farm proved to be a beautiful place for a proposal; with sprawling purple fields, cute farm animals and a small store and tea shop. Before heading back to Queenstown, we stopped in at Puzzling World for an interesting series of visual oddities before cocktails and tapas at Fine Eichardts Hotel; the staff were very knowledgeable and provided some great cocktail discussion, and we had the fanciest cheese roll we’ve ever had.
On our final day in Queenstown, we had Bagels at Balls and Bangles (odd name!) for breakfast, before fondue at Patagonia, which was enough to split between four; we ate too much chocolate, the selections of fruits and nuts was great.
