Twizzle!

So when Mr M and I were in NZ the first time around we went to Mount Cook. It was our first destination on our south island road trip and we headed there for New Year 2012. On the way to Mount Cook there is a wee town called Twizel, which we thought said Twizzle. This was embarrassingly corrected by someone at the hostel we stayed at!

Anyway, some of our friends had hired a batch for Labour weekend in Twizel and we jumped at the chance to snap up the room going spare. We had a very Kiwi weekend away including salmon fishing, pot luck dinners, mountain biking and road tripping! Apart from Saturday being a bit of a wash out the weekend was great. We headed back to Christchurch on Monday (through the hoards of traffic…not!) enjoying the amazing scenery. Seriously some of the best we’ve ever seen!
