A lovely break in Central Otago

After our walk in the Abel Tasman National park we made our way South following the West Coast of the South Island. We visited the „must do“ sights such as the pancake rocks or the Fox glacier (since it wasn’t the first glacier we had ever seen in our life a bit less impressing than for the standard tourist). We also stopped in a little town called Hokitika and went to the movies – this was fun as it was a vintage cinema and it gave us a bit of a break from being tourists and more the feeling of being a traveller. Leaving the sandflies behind we arrived in Central Otago on a farm outside of a tiny village called Lauder. We visited friends and spent two very nice days, seeing how farm life is like in this part of the world and visited the local attractions (e.g. biking on the Central Otago Rail Trail). We had a break from sleeping in our tent and got a nice little hut near a small river as exchange. Thanks again Louise, Keith, Francis, Campbell and Willow for your hospitality. It was great seeing you (again)!
