New Zealand - How fast are you going?


New Zealand - How fast are you going?

I was on my way from Mount Cook to Christchurch when I noticed this sign along the road. I found it quite funny to see a sign like this in the middle of nowhere with miles and miles long stretches of road with no vehicles at all.

I can imagine you'd want to drive fast here because of the low amount of vehicles in this part of the country. The roads are asking for it! I've never seen a police officer using his laser gun in New Zealand by the way. Another reason why I made this photo.

New Zealand - Mount Cook Village


New Zealand - Mount Cook Village

Mount Cook Village is located near New Zealand's highest mountain, 12 kilometers south of the summit. The small village is home to just a few facilities. There are a couple of hotels/hostels. Mount Cook Village is mainly used as a base for those who want to climb the mountain. There really isn't a whole to do here but it's the best place to relax. I had a flight around Mount Cook planned but this was canceled due to bad weather.

The previous photo in this set was taken earlier that day and it shows how fast the weather changes in New Zealand. Near Lindis Pass we had a beautiful day with loads of sunshine and later that day it was all foggy, cold and rainy.
