End of Autumn on the high plateau

Quick stat: Day 12 and 675 km

The high plateau of the central South Island is awesome! Since Fairlie, we visited lake Tekapo and had an enjoyable time in a Spa nearby. Then we had a great day to lake Pukaki, and went up to the base of Aoraki/Mount Cook where we could enjoy some real cold and snow!

We enjoyed every moments, even by rain or snow it was beautiful. When the weather gets really rainy, it reminds us a lot of Iceland :-) and no worries, our tent’s resistence has been thoroughly tested by now! It stands the tests of thunder storm, high wind, heavy showers and a river streaming underneath, without letting us get wet!

    Dis, Jean-Christophe, entre le typhon en Birmanie, le volcan au Chili, j’ai déjà ma dose, pas besoin d’en rajouter, va ! :-)
