Another snowy southern sojourn
While I take a break from study and indulge in one of my favourite tv shows I thought I could manage a bit of multi-tasking.
This time it’s our Wanaka trip from 2009.
We flew to Christchurch and drove south. Lake Tekapo is a great wee stop-off for lake views and the wee stone church.
We stopped overnight at Lake Ohau (hiding behind the cloud).
The road south took us over the Lindis Pass…
…and via the Crown Range Road between Queenstown and Wanaka, which is not complete without a stop off at the iconic Cardrona Hotel.
We based ourselves in Wanaka and made the most of the gorgeousness.
This was my third year of snowboarding (noting that a season for me consists of about four days) and this was shall we say not an unfamiliar pose… occasionally a little more spectacular 🙂
A night in Queenstown rounded out the trip before flying home.
