    The most ungodly place on earth. How they have been able to stay in operation is beyond me.

    In recent years I have become fascinated by stars, living in London for the past 9 years has meant that I have not been fortunate enough to see stars on a regular basis. Every now and then when visiting my parents in Somerset and the sky is clear then we are treated to quite a show. I like to think it makes me reflect on life and worry less about the little things but most likely I just like being in my own world and imagining huge balls ...

    ... clear window behind the altar. A short drive around the lake took us to the top of Mount John. Compared to some of the other mountains in the middle of the South Island, Mount John is a tiddler. However, it stands alone surrounded by lowlands and water, meaning that it is a formidable vantage point. There are several observatories on the summit because Mount John is a long way from the nearest city. The little town nearby dims its lights at night so as not to interfere with ...

    ... I hadn't figured on it being with eighty other people and the fact to get there necessitated a walk across the outside to enter the main accommodation! No chance of rebooking as everywhere full so we steeled ourselves to middle of the night sorties which first night were starlit but second required the brolly. Far from ideal! Luckily we had cold chicken and salad for supper so didn't have to scrum too long in the bedlam of a kitchen. We did however take the ...

    ... moons of Jupiter through the telescopes. The kids learned 6 weeks worth of science classes in one day in Lake Tekapo- geography, geology, glacial science, astronomy.... The last town of our caravan trip was Wanaka - another town where I could have spent my 6 months sabbatical. The kids loved Puzzleworld in this town. We fell in love with a bakery there that had pain au chocolats that would fit well into France and sticky buns that were so amazing that we bought two to ...

    Christmas at Mt. Cook

    ... out on the third day. This led to an epic (feeling anyway) day of 21km in 30 C heat. We both jumped in the river when we got back to the car.

    After taking a few days to recoup, we headed up to Mt. Cook, where the weather looked to be every bit as good as the previous few had been. Our first destination was Ball Shelter hut, up the Tasman Valley. The hike itself is only 9km, most of which is on an old road, so for the most part ...
