Our journey began in Christchurch, through Arthur’s pass to the west coast where we spent an evening exploring a beach empty of people and full of beautifully shaped driftwood. Highlights included lake Wanaka, surrounded with golden grassed mountains, followed by sweet Arrowtown, busy Queenstown (where we indulged in some horse riding in arguably one of the most magnificent spots in the country), sleepy Te Anau (and a beautiful experience in a dark cave with glow worms…I shall never not be in awe of nature), and understandably, Milford Sound. The drive between Te Anau and Milford Sound must be experience by everyone.
That particular trip ended too quickly, but the distance between our home and our sibling Island is but a stone skip’s worth. We shall be crossing the ditch again, hopefully soon :)
