As a volunteer with Medical Volunteers International, an organisation working across three areas in Greece to help bring medical care to the refugees there, I have first hand experience of the problems faced by refugees.
As I step out over the waterfall, I am very aware of the height which I would fall from if something was to go wrong. But I know it won’t go wrong as I am canyoning at Glentui, close to Christchurch, New Zealand’s South Island with Big Rock Adventures which should be at the top of any list when internet searching ‘Adventure Christchurch’ or ‘Canyoning Christchurch’.
As I lie back floating in the hot springs I am taking in the night sky. I am so relaxed that I feel like I am floating through the Milky Way. No I haven’t taken any type of drug, I am actually at Lake Tekapo stargazing. I had the most amazing night underneath the stars whilst on New Zealand’s South Island thanks to Tekapo Star Gazing.
What more can you need than soaking in Tekapo Hot Springs after a very cold overnight hike to Mt. Cook National Park, New Zealand’s South Island. Tekapo Hot Springs certainly took the chill and the ache out of my body and left me feeling so much more alive. So this is why I really recommend a visit to Tekapo Hot Springs which is found at the base of Mt. John at Lake Tekapo, New Zealand.
I can only imagine the speed I am going as I whiz through the forest descending 30 storeys. I feel like a bird flying through the trees which is quite fitting as I am taking the Kea Tour with Ziptrek Ecotours in Queenstown, New Zealand. What a great welcome to the adventure capital of the world I received from them as I took their 6 line tour, one of which is the steepest zip lines in the world! Yup, that is a 300 m (984 ft) zip line where you reach speeds of up to 70 kph.
I love hiring bikes when I get to a new place, it’s a great way to get around and get off the beaten track. I searched for bike rental in Wanaka and thanks to Wanaka Bike Tours, I got to really experience this without having to cycle the same route there and back, plus I got to try out some mountain biking trails on a great bike.
