Lakes & mountains

Day - 13 Monday 4th May 2009 We woke to another very cold but bright morning, no fog here in Fairlie, which gave us a rather good view of our surroundings: Once we'd eaten and used the nice hot campsite showers, we set off for Lake Tekapo. A pleasant enough drive with interesting...

South Island Day 16: Slow Roasting Our Tender, English Flesh

True to New Zealand form the weather was shit again but we decided to go to Lake Tekapo anyway for a photo opportunity although we figured there wouldn't be much to do in the rain. We cruised along and as we passed the mountains the cloud suddenly cleared, it just stopped at the mountains and we...

Up the Waitaki Valley - Night 107

Being in a large, comfortable queen bed with no one tossing and turning in the bunk above or below me I actually managed to sleep in until 8am. After breakfast and a short trip down to the beach I packed my bags for the long two mile walk into town. My bus was scheduled for 11:15 and by noon I...

What a surprise view

May 15 After we had parked the van in the dark the night before with no real idea of where we were, we woke to an amazing surprise. To find we were on the side of a hill overlooking a big turquoise lake, surrounded by mountains with the sun rising over the top. We really thought we are going to...
