Thoughts and travels of Patrick Lam

Around the Mountain Circuit (Taranaki), January 2 to 5, 2023

A walk around the mountain (Taranaki). Pretty chill except for day 3 which had super high winds and day 2 which had a short amount of muddy steep terrain.

Christmas on the South Island: Gillepsie, Mueller Hut, glacier kayaking, and rock climbing

Christmas 2022 trip. Like everyone in New Zealand and many people from overseas, we flew in to Queenstown. Got away from the huge hordes by going to Wanaka (small hordes) and Mount Cook Village (some visitors). Did many of the things we’d been planning: Gillespie Circuit, glacier kayaking, Mueller Hut. Also went rock climbing in Wanaka. Featuring many pictures of Wanaka grebes.
