The bug just hadn't let go, the memories of the 2012 trip to the South Island just wouldn't quit. Another 2 weeks, once again roaming free as a bird without fixed plans, just going by mood and weather forecasts. And the place didn't let us down....NOT ONE BIT!! Found some exceptional accomodation Found our way across the Haka, the Mackenzie's and Meyers Pass Admired the endless turquoise rivers and lakes Enjoyed some great tucker and the generous amount of river-pebbles to add some extra-kick to the riding Crossed the Dansey's Pass ...and had lunch on the warm rocks of the Macreas Rd., then shook our heads at the hidden wonders of the Horse Range on the way to some giant soccer balls someone had forgotten on Moeraki Beach. Creeping out of the fog on the Ramrock Rd. ...while floating above a sea of cottonwool in the valleys. The Old Dunstan Trail across the High Plains, the gobsmacking Thompson Gorge Track, the brutal corrugations of the Treble Cone and Remarkables roads, but the views, maaan...the VIEWS!!
