There and Back Again

A Canadian backpacking through New Zealand

Kinloch, New Zealand

 Since the beginning of February I’ve been working at Kinloch Lodge on the northwestern end of lake Wakatipu which lies around the bend from Queenstown and opposite the town of Glenorchy. After your 4 hours of woofing you’re left to your own devices in the various mountain chains in the area. By being employed by the lodge I’m allowed access to the bikes and kayaks after work free of charge so early morning paddles are in order. And finally to top it off, the Milky Way opens up a above on clear nights which is complimented well by a cup of New Zealand’s infamous instant coffee.
