Next stop on our road trip is Lake Tekapo. Tekapo is about 3hrs drive south-west of Christchurch.
Church of the Good Shepherd
On the shore of Lake Tekapo is this cute little church, well worth braving the cool night air to get a shot with some stars in the background.
Checking out the view of the southern alps over Lake Tekapo
Today we decided to check out a boutique ski hill in Lake Tekapo called Round Hill, this was one of my favourite places, so so beautiful. There was plenty of space for beginners like me to practice and for the more adventurous (not me😂😂) you can head up the worlds longest and steepest rope tow and check out Australasia's biggest vertical drop (783m) 😱
This little hut is at the top of the T-bar, you can chill out up here and have a beer before you tackle the slopes
Von Brown Hut

After a hard day skiing we headed down the mountain and jumped in the hot pools at Tekapo Springs, perfect to soak my poor aching body after falling off my skis a million times 😂😂 There are 3 pools which all different temperatures ranging from 36-40 degrees.

Mt John observatory over looks Lake Tekapo and the Southern Alps, it's an awesome spot to watch the sunset and then do some star gazing.
Lindis Pass, beautiful at anytime of the year
Lauren always walks in front of my camera when I'm trying to shoot! Typical
Flying over Lake Wanaka in these old tiger moths was totally epic
The sheep even formed a 'S' for me
Wanaka is the perfect place to do your first sky dive, the views are so amazing that it takes your mind off the thought of jumping out of a plane 😂😂
That famous Wanaka Tree
Heading up to the Cardrona ski field
This is why you always need to ski with a camera on hand, these views are insane.
A huge thank you to Air New Zealand
