    We left Queenstown and headed to Dunedin, a fairly quiet drive with not many stops apart from a big hydro electric dam at Clyde. Nigel was surprised that there were not more pylons coming out of it as it supplies 10% of NZ power, I reminded Him that that is only about 600,000 people.

    ... we needed to head east to Arthur's Pass. This wonderful and scenic drive through the Southern Alps led us on a typically windy road where we could gawp at the towering mountains, dwarfing the seemingly impossibly flat valleys for hours on end. Once we reached our campsite for the evening, the scenery was not quite that of Mt Cook (although the weather was) but it was certainly a remarkable place to be staying for the night.
