Our Vanlife trip through the South Island of New Zealand took us right through from Queenstown to Lake Tekapo.
A failed trip to Aoraki had us bummed out that we would miss out on this but we did get snowed out one night free camping outside of Twizel.

The morning after this is what we woke up to. Just incredible scenery!

Our Top 5 lakes in all of the Canadian Rockies would have to be in order of:

1) Moraine Lake
2) Peyto Lake
3) Lake Louise
4) Emerald Lake
5) Lake O’hara

We’ve just come back from Canada and seeing everyone’s fall pictures is driving us crazy that we just missed it, what a beautiful time of year.

But let’s face it Canada is incredible anytime of year ❤️🇨🇦

However there’s something really special about Peyto, whether it’s the shimmering blue or how nicely it sits nestled in the trees and the mountains.

We think it looks like a wolf, what do you think? Can you see an animal?

Laura and I spent the night camping under the stars in Dinosaur Provinical Park in southern @travelalberta . These hoodoos lie in the Badlands and is the primary fossil site of over 100 species of dinosaurs found in Canada, as well as being one of the biggest collection of dinosaur fossils anywhere on earth.

It was made a UNESCO site in 1979, and is still unique in that no other area of comparable size has produced such abundance of diverse dinosaur records.

Here we camped out under the stars of the Milky Way, hiked the Badlands trail and even took a trip to the royal Tyrrell museum of paleontology.

Staying warm with @zorali

It may not quite be Winter time in New Zealand right now but how can you not share these beautiful photos?

No joke, the morning before this photo was taken there was no snow on the ground at all. Waking up to this winter wonderland was a lovely surprise!

Not to mention South Island received the most snow fall in almost a decade the week we were there , how crazy!

The mountains are so big they don’t fit in the IG frame! Just a couple of newly engaged travellers sitting on the banks of Lake Wakatipu on the way to Glenorchy ...
