    The clocks went back last night so I got an extra hour in bed which was very much appreciated. However I was incredibly sad to be leaving Queenstown, I absolutely loved it there and think it was one of my favourite places I have ever been to. Once back on the bus it was quite a trek to Lake Tekapo but we made a few stops along the way and the bus driver put on a couple of rom-coms so the time passed fairly quickly. When we got to Lake Tekapo ...

    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 ...

    ... we had a sushi lunch and drove around a bit. It's a town known for some Victorian architecture near the coast. They ham it up a bit with some old pennyfarthing bikes (the ones with the huge front wheel) and a park with some cool statues. Sadly, we missed the popular Steam Punk museum, where an eccentric artist developed a cool museum.

    Then it was on to Lake Tekapo (TEK a PO). It seems nothing is ...

    We're sitting in the van having a cup of tea, on our own by the side of Lake Pukaki, and with views of the mountain ranges surrounding us and Mount Cook and its friends directly out of the back window. The sun is just about to set and promises to be another spectacular show. There is no noise at all except for the lapping of water on the lake shore and very occasional car passing down the road. This morning was very different with us getting ...

    Evan - Hi everyone! We had lots of fun in the camper van, I’ll tell you a bit about it. Emma and Katie slept in a bed on top of the driver’s seat. Emma bonked her head a lot because the ceiling was low. I alternated sleeping with Mommy and Daddy. There are over-head compartments in the camper van, just like a plane. After going to a late night star gazing tour that lasted until midnight we got to sleep in the campervan while daddy drove home to our campground. ...
