        ... to use the flashlight but in fairness to him so did mine! We were soon back on the lake to be mesmerised by the moon and stars. No picture did it justice and we would of happily camped out on the lake all night. It was the perfect night to do the Earth and sky Observation, where you get to go up to Mt John and look through telescopes to see space. Unfortunately, there was only three spaces for the night and seven people from our bus wanted to do it. As we were here for two ...

We actually bought food in and cooked a nice little family meal together (a huge novelty when you eat out all day everyday!), which was very nice and homey - pity we still couldnt get our hands on any booze thanks to idiotic New Zealand easter laws!

        For those interested then Google Lake Tekapo and check out the Images. Well worth 5 minutes of anyone's time. This place is on my list of places to visit again

Apparently on a good day you can see Mount Cook, New Zealand's biggest mountain. Today was he best day for visibility as it was rather cloudy. We had been told many times that in Maori, New Zealand is called Aotearoa meaning land of the long white cloud, as the ...

        We are in Twizel tonight. Twizel is not a new candy creation where a piece of red licorice is put inside a Twix bar. It is a small town, possibly named by Snoop Dog(1), just outside Aoraki/Mt. Cook National park. We have yet to glimpse the high peaks as the clouds had returned when we woke up in Queenstown this morning and have continued to hang low all the way up to Twizel. We have a couple days to spend here on the eastern side of the Southern Alps before we make our way back to ...

        Lake Tekapo

        Lake Tekapo was a little bit disappointing. For me it was only a lake like any lake. Sometimes you read in the Lonely Planet about a highlight and when you go there you realize that it is not as amazing as it is told in the book. But then something becomes a highlight which you dont expect to ...
