Lake Tekapo

Road Queenstown - Christchurch

Road Queenstown – Christchurch

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’.

Church Of The Good Sheperd

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.
