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

          We had rain on the roof for most of the night at Twizel, but the locals were over the moon, so dry around here. It didn't get much better throughout the day, but boy did it get cold! We had a nice brekkie at the local bakery and a couple of lattes and we were on our way. We arrived at Lake Tepako at around midday and to say I was underwhelmed was an understatement. The lady at the information centre told us the only holiday park in ...

          We drove a few hours south to stunning lake Tekapo, the photos speak for themselves. We free camped this evening (i.e we were not on a park, we were on our own) it was gorgeous. peaceful and exciting. Waking up to a bright crisp morning and taking a beautiful stroll along the waters edge to take in the magical sight of the snow capped mountains and lake was just awesome. The picturesque ...

          The walk and return took about an hour and I felt really energized afterward. I headed down the road to the teeny Mt. Cook Airport for my afternoon adventure, a skiplane flight over the glaciers! The flight was originally supposed to be for another couple and myself, but they didn't show up, so I ended up getting to go on a solo flight! The pilot had me sit in the middle seat and I could easily shift from left ...

          ... quite a cold ride! We got harnessed up - we did it in a sitting position rather than the full superman dive that we had seen others do. Ed was given a go-pro camera to record the trip (as was Tash) and on the count of 3 the release button was pressed and we were off. It was exhilarating, think we reached about 60km/h before hitting the end. The mechanism then cleverly spun us around and we were pulled back up to the start, uncoupled and viewed ...

It is constantly searching the sky for new earth like planets. Then After chocolate brownie and cream and a cup of hot chocolate we viewed a number of stars and constellations through a sixteen inch telescope before viewing others through smaller telescopes outside as it got darker. This area is one of the best in ...
