A Tour of the South Island

Business Support Temp Staff

This summer, I took a tour of the mid to lower South Island. I’ve lived in quite a few of these places over my lifetime, so it was pretty cool to go back and visit – especially Franz Josef Glacier, which has receded so much! My favourite part of the trip was Wanaka. We had stunning weather and Lake Hawea’s beauty is just surreal. If you haven’t travelled to any of these places, I highly recommend adding it to the ‘2015 to-do-list’!
