New Zealand in pictures: Central Otago

The second leg of the New Zealand trip took us to Central Otago, which knocked us out with its dramatic beauty. All craggy mountains and Listerine blue lakes, it’s easy to see why the winemakers here are so proud of their patch of land. This is the view of Lake Wakatipu from my hotel room. The longest lake in New Zealand, Wakatipu stretches 84 kilometres and is 400m deep. Its ‘S’ shape is said to resemble a sleeping giant.
