    ... t even surprised by the fact she hasn't listened to any of the information the driver says. We checked into the lodge and as the weather was so bad we decided to try and book some things for Bangkok. We spent most of the afternoon doing this, so when the rain stopped we felt like we had to get outside and have a look at what Lake Tekapo has to offer. Rach, Joe and I walked into the town and Tor went for a run by 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 ...

Raincoats were removed and the pullovers tied around the waist. A considerable amount of time and money had been spent on upgrading the path with boardwalks and new swing bridges. The journey was worth the effort, due the beauty of Mount Cook and its other peaks. We followed after lunch with ...

    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 ...

    Day 19: To Lake Tekapo..with excellent stops

    ... final stop before reaching Lake Tekapo, and that wes at Lake Pukaki. Here there is stunning view of Mt Cook on the other side of the lake, as well as the various glaciers that surrounding it. A popular stopping point, but justifiably so. At Lake Tekapo we got settled in to our accomodation; a bit like a mini-mountain lodge with a good view of the lake and mountains. We had a short rest (and cup of tea) to wait for ...
