        ... oak in 1935. There was a picture window behind the alter that gives a distractingly divine view of lake and mountain majesty, in which we were in awe over! At the southern end of the lake, this little town has unobstructed views across turquoise water to a backdrop of rolling hills and snowcapped mountains. We were happy to be here! We checked in at Lakefront lodge for our two nights stay! It looked cosy, but my only complaint was that the bathroom was not close by! To get ...

Anyway, we headed to Lake Tekapo and using a wiki app we found our first free camp for the night complete with “toilet”! A beautiful spot on the next lake over from Lake Tekapo – Lake Pukaki?? Watching the sunset whilst eating pot noodles – ...

And that's just the south island. This is a bucket list country and so far it's one of our favorites.

        ... down from Lake Takepo we took a gravel road up the eastern side of Lake Pukaki. After a few kilometers we found a small open area right on the lake with an amazing view of Mount Cook.

Jen settled in quickly, forgoing reading any books and just sitting in her chair looking out at the best view of the highest ...
