So we where house sitting for ten days for a lovely couple out in Port Chalmers last week. It was super cozy to live in a house and have a bit more space than usual after being so used to our wee flat. Saying that, it is so nice to be back home although I truly miss the company of the animals we where looking after, nothing beats feeding wee lambs in the morning and getting welcomed home by a big happy dog.
Before shooting home we stopped by Wades aunties place who suggested for us to come with them to their family home in Twizel for the weekend. Checking the weather rapports made it an easy decision. We decided to start my birthday celebrations a bit earlier and took a three day weekend. With absolutely no expectations it ended up being an epic weekend. The drive up took us about three and a half hours and was beautiful.
The first night we where all just catching up, Trace cooked us up a big feed, and we had a lot of laughs. The next morning we got up early to head to Ohau - ski field, to do some of the first skiing of this year. After only skied a few times in Sweden it was an amazing experience to ski in the mountains. The views where insane and completly blew my mind.
We hiked up to the top of the mountain and got an outstanding view. The day turned out absolutely amazing. We where all super tired when we got home, after another decent feed we went to bed early to make sure we had plenty of rest before starting our next adventure in mt Cook national park in the morning.
