The drive from Mt Cook to Lake Tekapo was lovely and short, or it might have been if Alex hadn't wanted to stop off to take photos of the millions of Lupin flowers that lined the side of the roads and fields. Granted they were very pretty and so colourful. Just outside Tekapo we stopped off at an observatory complex. The Tekapo region is famous for …
From a stressful night before and with 2 hours sleep, I was ready to get on that plane to NZ. Much anticipated.
I wish things were just a little more organised and well planned but doing the true Madelly style, I am doing everything on the whim.

's Ochtends m'n rugzak voor de zoveelste keer compleet gereorganiseerd en op de bus naar Greymouth gestapt. Opnieuw een prachtige route.

The woman that owns this place is very friendly and so helpful. We got treated to an upgrade to the big double room. It was huge and included a sofa and TV area. The other rooms also looked good and we noticed them cleaning every morning.
