Queenstown – Day 3 (Part 2)

October 29, 2015

When we arrived at Heliworks, we were told we’d have another person with us on the flight. I thought that was fine, but was worried she’d take the front seat, haha. That wasn’t a problem though as Jeremy and I walked out first and were able to secure that seat. The flight up was great with beautiful scenery. A little bit shaky when you got up to the mountains, which scared me a little bit, but wasn’t too bad.

We landed in a beautiful spot on Cecil Peak. There was quite a bit of snow around still, even though we’re in the middle of Spring. As embarrassing as it may be, I was walking around taking selfies with my selfie stick. It was so cold. I was only wearing flats, seeing as I didn’t know we were going on the flight, so my shoes filled up with snow. After a while I couldn’t really feel my feet.

Jeremy suggested that I should take a panorama up there, but at that stage my feet were killing me, and my hands were super cold too, so I told him I’d skip the panorama. He kept telling me that I really should take the panorama, and after a while I just told him to do it. Little did I know that there was a purpose of the panorama.

Shortly after I declined taking it, Jeremy got down on one knee and proposed to me. I was in complete shock. I really did not expect it, so I started crying and laughing. I said yes of course! Then I turn around and I see the other person who came with us taking photos of us. For a brief moment I thought it was a bit strange that she was taking photos of our private moment, but then I quickly realised that she was our photographer.

She walked up to me and introduced herself, and everything started to make a bit more sense to me. Jeremy wanted me to take the panorama so that I’d turn around and he’d be on one knee, but I ruined it because I was so cold! The helicopter pilot came up with a glass of champagne each for me and Jeremy. I was so happy and caught in the moment that I downed my champagne pretty quickly. Quickly enough to get a refill and to finish off Jeremy’s as well (seeing as he doesn’t really drink).

We walked around up there for a bit and got our photographer (Jen) to take photos of us. We couldn’t stay too long, mainly because the pilot had to take us back, but also because it was really cold and I didn’t want to lose my feet to frostbite, haha!

Our flight back down was just as good as the flight up there, except this time I was crying, and I was slightly tipsy! When we landed, Jeremy told me that we still had the photographer for another hour or so. I decided to quickly drop by our hotel (which turned out to be the Hilton by the way! Also something I wasn’t aware of) to have a very fast shower and get ready to take some more photos.

To be continued..
