Lonely Planet's Best in Travel 2012 - Top 10 Regions List - the latest accolade our little slice of paradise has received! The area ranked 8th in the list based on its year round activities and spectacular scenery. The Southern Lakes was the only place in New Zealand to feature in the new book - but then that isn't a suprise to many of us is it!
And it's snowing!! Crazy at this time of year but yes, this morning we woke up to a good dump on the mountains and as I write this it is trying to snow down in town. Yes it looks pretty but I was just getting used to the warm weather and sunshine - hope the vege garden survives the cold snap!
All going well - Jup is set to finish his run of NZ today. Amazing effort Jup and congratulations on all the money you have raised for the stroke foundation.
Well we had all better rug up and light the fires again - looks like it may be a little chilly for the next few days. As long as it improves for next week - I am off to a wedding so fingers crossed.
Kylie, Mandy, Wayne and the Te Wanaka Team.
