early morning light at Kinloch

In the midst of a trip to New Zealand, we've been so constantly on the move that I haven't had a chance to post. Ten hotels in ten nights is not a trip I'd recommend for leisure travelers, but it's an excellent if intense way to learn more about one of my favorite destinations in the world.

I captured the above image this morning at Kinloch Manor while walking back to my villa after breakfast. It would be an ideal accommodation for families or couples traveling together — two bedrooms, a large living room, and a kitchen. The villa was truly overkill for me as I was the only occupant in the room, but I truly appreciated having a washer and dryer! Being able to begin the second half of my educational tour with a clean set of laundry is pure luxury.

Tomorrow morning we check out of Wharekauhau and fly to Christchurch ... and on Sunday to Queenstown, home of New Zealand's most fabulous alpine scenery.
