      Thursday 20th February

      2pm - Currently we are driving south along the East coast of South Island through consistently beautiful countryside.

      We hove to at Kiakora for morning cofee. It is a small place with a big name. Only 4,000 inhabitants and not much to see, except lots of nature.

      Just north of Kiakora …

      Up Avalanche Peak

      The weather is beautiful this morning. Hoping it stays so for just a few more hours, I rush to get ready and head up Avalanche Peak. Around 9:30 I leave the visitors center and turn up the small path near the sign. The path is fairly obvious while in the trees. Every so often there's an orange triangle nailed to a tree to assure you don't walk off …

      This morning I grab a banana and necessary muffin and jump on the mini-bus to Arthur's pass.

The coastal lands quickly change into a mountainous region looking something between the Rockies and the Appalachians. We pull into Arthur's pass …

      Zo vandaag eerst in de ochtend weer eens wat gewerkt en in de middag wat tijd voor een wandelingetje. Er is een wandeling die in het dorp begint en langs allerlei hoogtepunten gaat dus besluit ik om die route te volgen. Eerste hoogtepunt is Devils Punchbowl falls en dit is echt een hoogtepunt. Na een half uur over ik weet niet hoeveel trappen …

      Zo vandaag is gevraagd aan Bob wat een mooie wandeltocht zou zijn en hij raadde Avalanche Peak aan. Ik had er al over gelezen dat het behoorlijk steil was( 1 km omhoog en maar 2,5 km horizontaal), maar ik had wel zin in een uitdagende tocht dus er maar aan begonnen. Het begin was om de hoek bij het hostel dus dat was makkelijk en daar hield het …
