Location: Lake Tekapo, New Zealand

MapFrom Dunedin we travelled north to Lake Tekapo. On the way through we stopped at a beach to see the Moeraki boulders. The next stop was at this beautiful lake, of which the name we dont recall. It was an amazing shade of blue lake with Mount Cook in the background, hopefully the photos we took can do it justice. The hostel in Tekapo was in a great location, right by the lake. On our first night the Magic driver organised a BBQ and we all sat outside stuffing our faces enjoying the sunset. Whist in Tekapo we did a two hour horse trek around the lake, it was a great way to see around the lake and some of the views were breathtaking. The horses behaved themselves fairly well but we both ached for a few days after!
