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

    Yesterday, the 28th, we left Queenstown and headed to Lake Tekapo. Due to Lisa having four nights in Queenstown, and us only three, we had a new driver - Nancy. He was nice, but not as good as Lisa. Annoyingly the weather was rubbish on our travels, so we didn't get to see the awesome views of Mount Cook - New Zealand's highest mountain (3754 m).

Today we were blessed with the weather, as we have been since the start of this holiday. Tomorrow's forecast is again for good ...

    My first stop was Mt Cook National Park. I got some beautiful views heading up there, and stopped and swam in some lakes. They were cold but really nice. The mountains are huge and really impressive. I also saw some glaciers. You can really tell that they have shrunk significantly. The Tasman Glacier ...

    ... the Hooker Valley.

    It was simply beautiful, imposing mountains all around, waterfalls, braided rivers, glaciers, wild flowers (we spotted the Mt Cook buttercup)...even Lotte was taken in by the views, spending most of the first half if the walk quietly looking at it all and saying 'grote mountains' a few times.

    The walk took us over three swing ridges and eventually deposited us at the edge of the Hooker glacier lake (complete with ...
