Leaving our homestay in Tekapo, we continued our expedition towards the south along the Southern Alps. Driving along Lake Pukaki, the lake that leads to Mount Cook and Tasman Glacier. It was exciting to see the highest peak in the Southern Alps and visit the largest glacier in a day.
I figured everyone has to conquer or overcome something once in a while; Since I was in New Zealand, I participated in a Black Water Rafting tour which is a Waitomo Cave adventure featuring activities like climbing and abseiling through the cave. I overcome my fear and challenged myself. That feels quite an accomplishment.
The classic “Fly, Cruise, Fly” from Queenstown to experience the spectacular Milford Sound.
Milford Sound is the most beautiful tourist destinations in New Zealand and it offers the best staggering coastal scenery that I have seen, and we experience it with the classic “Fly Cruise Fly” scenic tour to see the best of the Sound in a day!
Christchurch is known as the “Garden City” due to its warm weather, abundance sunshine, flower beds and an expansive Botanic Garden. the city center of Christchurch was devastated of being the epicenter of an earthquake in 2011, and it might take a long time for the restoration work to be done. Hopefully it will recover very soon!
