2024 New Zealand Trip – Part 10

Mt. Cook – Lake Pukaki – Lake Tekapo – Waihi Gorge – Christchurch

May 19

  • Drive to My. Cook. Weather was very foggy and rainy so unfortunately very few scenic spots.
  • Could not see Mt. Cook at all. Walked around visitor centre and had lunch in the van.
  • Drove back down and stayed in a freedom site on Pukaki which was really nice.
  • Went for a short walk. Met some cats. Had dinner, read and then off to bed.

May 20

  • Drive to Lake Tekapo. Stopped for some sushi. Sky cleared a bit so we had some scenery.,
  • Drove on to Geraldine and got some firewood, cheese, jerky, and fudge!
  • Drove through Woodbury to Waihi Gorge DOC campground. Great small campground right on a river. We were the only ones in the park.

May 21

  • Time to go home. Drive to Christchurch and return to 124 Holly St. The start is now the end.
  • Returned the van and headed back to my Airbnb.

What a great trip! I had such a fun time travelling around with Connor. Lots of fantastic stops, walks, meals, and talks. Memories for a lifetime.
