New Zealand

Glacial Lake in Mt. Cook area

I recently had the chance to visit New Zealand with my friend Pam.  Pam is a radiographer who has been coming to Kudjip for a number of months each year.  Pam is from South Africa and we have talked about going to Africa on a safari, but this year we went to NZ instead.  NZ is a beautiful country with lots of sheep and mountains and rivers and beautiful country side.  We saw as much of it as we could in two week's time traveling on both the South and North Islands.  We went to Milford Sound, hiked part of the Routeburn Track, visited Mt. Cook, hiked in Abel Tasman National Park, went whitewater rafting, saw the Kaouri Forest and many birds and sheep in between.
