After a very sad goodbye, I left the group in Queenstown and headed for Lake Tekapo. I have to be honest I slept most of the journey! I woke up at Lake Pukaki and I thought I was still dreaming, it is honestly one of the brightest and bluest lakes I’ve ever seen.
After checking-in at the Lake Front Lodge, I headed straight for the Tekapo Springs for some relaxing me time. It has lots of different outdoor pools depending on the heat you like, as well as a child’s playground area, steamroom and sauna.
11pm and five layers later, I was ready for my stargazing adventure with Earth and Sky Tours. With a 95% clear sky we had an amazing view of the stars and sky, it was an incredible experience and possibly one of the highlights of my entire New Zealand trip!
