    Heading to Mt Cook and the Southern Alps

    Left Lisa's this morning at 9.30am heading towards Lake Tekapo. The journey was quite uninteresting until we turned off the main road towards Geraldine and Fairlie. The views then started to become much more scenic, with hills and mountains to both sides. As we approached Burke Pass we got a stunning view of snow capped mountains ahead. Fromm looking at the map Moira thinks it was Mt Cook and the range of mountains to it's South. We arrived at ...

    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'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 ...

    After an early breakfast in the motel restaurant we clicked our cases shut and waited in the lobby. Tim arrived on time at 7.45 and we were on our way to pick up three more adventurers, Graham and Jenny from Brisbane; Karen from Chicago; Camilla and Ross from Adelaide. All chatted and got to know each other and a bit of trans Tasman rivalry with Tim. We drove to the depot and met Gary and sister Amanda and his wife Sharon; and Barbara and Lowie (?) from ...

    Travelling Off the Grid

    ... 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. Emma was a little nervous about not having any electricity for her iPad - mainly because she is a ferocious reader and her current book supply is electronic. Jen settled in quickly, forgoing reading any books and just sitting in her chair looking out at the best view of the highest ...
