Last day in New Zealand… Unfortunately a sad day but I can reflect on an amazing time in Aotearoa ‘The Land Of The Long White Cloud’. It hasn’t stolen it’s name because on my way to Christchurch, where I would take my flight the very next morning, I could admire amazing & unique cloud formations in the sky. It was my first & only day alone and I enjoyed every minute of this relaxing roadtrip who brought me to the famous blue ‘Lake Tekapo’.
On the shores of Lake Tekapo I found the Church of the Good Sheperd, built in 1935 as a memorial to the pioneers of the Mackenzie county. Congregations worship regularly in the church, which offers awe inspiring views of the lake and mountains through the altar window. I stayed in Lake Tekapo till sunset… I simply couldn’t leave that amazing place! Once the sun set behind the mountains, leaving the surrounding in a shady atmosphere, I continued my way to Christchurch. My last hours in New Zealand were a fact but a brand new adventure awaited me on the beautiful island of Tasmania.
