Nowhere in New Zealand is far from the beach. If you’re in the South Island, you are also always near the mountains. We started our morning by the shores of St Clair’s in Dunedin. The weather was beautiful: the sun was shining and the day was calm.
We then drove 4.5 hours to the beautiful mountains of Queenstown. Although the freshwater shores of Lake Wakatipu is in stark contrast to St Clair’s, there is no mistaking the serene peacefulness from both places.
