That afternoon we headed in the car for the long drive to Milford Sound (part of Fiorland). We lucked out and got four spots in the only backpacker in town. I was starting to feel pretty crappy after my big day of paragliding so when we got there I was very happy to find out that there was absolutely nothing to do in the town. That night I went to bed early so that we could get up for the 9AM cruise in the morning. Milford Sound is a really beautiful geological area which previously was carved out by glaciers. We got on the boat at 9AM (which had a free breakfast!) It was really misty and with the mountains, mist and waterfalls it was really tremendous. There were a few waterfalls coming off the cliffs (the big attraction of Milford Sound) so we got to experience that.
