Whirlwind visit on website

Two brothers from the United States have documented their whirlwind, action-packed visit to Queenstown in videos on a travel website.

Late last year, brothers Marko and Alex Ayling, of San Diego, visited Wakatipu as part of their ''Biggest, Baddest Bucket List'', run by website My Destination.

The brothers won an all expenses-paid, around the world blogging trip.

They visited 26 destinations across the world in 24 weeks, finishing in New Zealand.

Their video guide to Queenstown and a ''behind the scenes'' video blog were uploaded to You Tube last week, detailing their experiences in the resort.

Included were a trip up Skyline, a ride with Southern Discoveries to Mt Nicholas Station, the Shotover Jet, Nevis Bungy, a skydive with NZone, a scenic helicopter ride with Glacier Southern Lakes, sampling wine and a burger and a quick trip to Arrowtown.

The brothers

described New Zealand as their ''second home'' and Queenstown as a ''small, quaint mountain town'' which was ''not just the adrenaline capital of the world'' but the birthplace of activities including bungy jumping and commercial jet-boat rides.
