Queenstown – Day 3 (Part 3)

November 8, 2015

The photo shoot was great, and I had a huge smile on my face the whole time! I still couldn’t really believe what had just happened, and I kept looking at my ring thinking how amazingly beautiful it is, and how impressed I was with Jeremy for pulling it all off.

After we finished the photo shoot, we went back to the hotel to get ready for dinner. Jeremy had booked us a table at Botswana Butchery – a really fancy and highly rated restaurant in central Queenstown. The name itself didn’t excite me, because I thought it was going to be all about meat, but I was very happy to discover that wasn’t the case at all.

The restaurant was beautiful, and we got our own private room. It’s not often you go to dinner and get your own waitress and your own room. It was a pretty fantastic experience. When we told them we had just got engaged, they brought out two complimentary glasses of champagne, and again, because Jeremy doesn’t drink, I had both of them!

The food was so good! The starter we had was one of the best ones I’ve ever had. It was a Wild Fiordland Red Deer Tartare (Hand-cut venison, fresh horseradish, baby capers, cornichon, game chips, free range egg yolk).

For my main, I had fish, and Jeremy ate hare. You know it’s a fancy restaurant if they serve hare! I unfortunately couldn’t finish my meal. I think all the excitement had got to me, and I was also starting to sober up from the champagne we drank up on the mountain and the ones I had with dinner, which made me feel slightly sick unfortunately.

I felt quite tired at that point, so we decided to just head back to the hotel to relax. I think I had a huge smile on my face that whole day after the proposal. Certainly a day that won’t soon be forgotten! And we still had so much more to look forward to as we had two and a half more days in Queenstown.
