Twizel was our home for much longer than we’d meant it to be :) But after a couple of epic sections with Ollie and Nico, followed by the unreal experience of Aoraki Mount Cook, there were hundreds and hundreds of shots to go through, upload, and write for. Plus a little resting, and a bit of partying to squeeze in. Somehow, even though this is technically a ‘holiday’, we’re always pretty busy it seems!
The main event was finally meeting The Tasty Trekkers! Yey! They’ve been chasing us across the whole county for months and finally they nabbed us. Lots of booze was drunk and stories exchanged, so much so that we forgot to grab their picture! But not to worry, we’d be racing each other over the next two sections. And there was plenty more partying to come… ;) More on that later.
Our home in Twizel was the letter ‘E’ in M O T E L, and extremely comfy it was! I can totally recommend ‘E’ as a place to relax for a few days. I just hope the cleaner didn’t freak out too much at the amount of empty beer cans and rum bottles we left behind ;) Haha.

Awesome that you stayed at the Mountain Chalets in Twizel, they are legendary in our rowing club, the mighty West End Rowing Club, as it’s where we always stay every year the NZ Rowing Nationals are held in Twizel (usually mid-February).
So don’t worry about empty beer cans and run bottles, imagine what hundreds of drunk rowers can do to a peaceful town like Twizel! I’ve definitely done a few nude runs across that big grass square just outside it!
