I am having a great time in New Zealand, seeing interesting towns and beautiful varying landscapes. We have been travelling around the South Island doing about 3 hours of driving every second day. It’s been wonderful! This is a photo from today of Mt Cook.
However this trip has not been without it’s challenges. With the exception of the last 24 hours, weather in the south of the South Island has been bitterly cold (for summer) and most days have been around 10-12C with strong winds making it feel like 5-8C! Some days the wind made it nearly impossible to sketch, but of course we tried to brave the elements. As a result we have both been sick with heavy colds and haven’t ended up sketching as much as we had hoped. Nor have I had the time to blog in the evening.
So finally, here is a collection of sketches and photos as we have travelled from Christchurch to Oamaru to Dunedin to Invercargill to Cromwell and Geraldine.
We had 1.5 days to explore this great town full of grand Victorian stone warehouses.
More sketches here.
Lovely evening with old Flickr friend Maria – magdamerlina
