It’s been a while since we’ve been able to upload any photos of our trip. In fact, this is the first time since we arrived on the South Island back at the start of November.
But, as promised in a couple of more recent posts, here are Steph’s photographs from our journeys on the south side of the Cook Strait.
These photos cover our trip from Abel Tasman National Park in the north, down to Wanaka, Queenstown and Fiordland in the south.

On Tuesday 29 December we head out on the second of our Great Walks, along the Milford Track. We’ll add photos from that walk and our wander along the Routeburn Track soon(ish).
