As South as it gets, for now

A day where we travel below the 46th parallel.

Today announced itself as another great day. The view from our Fiordland Lodge onto the Te Anau lake was stunning again.

We would have loved to stay a couple more days on this great place. Both Vicky and I love pancakes for breakfast, and the ones served here were just great. We met a couple of Dutch people who gave us some good hints and advice for our journey of today, on where to stop – and where not.
Our route would take us today under the 46th parallel, way more south than Vicky and I ever had been before, and probably will be in the next couple of months… The Catlins is a reserve in the south of New Zealand, where we had a great time.

We made it – later than expected – to Dunedin. Eva, our host, welcomed us in the Fletcher Lodge, not too far from the center, where we fell asleep in seconds. Probably we counted enough sheep during the day…
