I only stayed at Lake Tekapo for a short while but the images seem to imprint in my mind permanently.
Other than the beautiful mountain and lake, plus the blue sky on a hot summer day, what had made this place more significant was the "lepinus" flowers that sprang up from the ground everywhere. The first thing that came across my mind seeing this beautiful plant was: "If only I could this flower home..."
More photos of Lake Tekapo coming your way after this in Part 2. I have to share this beautiful sight with everybody.
