Today's travel photo is of Lake Pukaki, looking north towards a cloud covered Mount Cook on the South Island of New Zealand.

I've been to Melbourne several times. Most of those times were in transit at the airport but I also drove through it on my way across Australia a couple of years ago, however I've never had the time to stop and have a look around, so I've always considered Melbourne to be a city that I… Read More
