Apparently They’re Twins.

 So we go to Hanmer Springs right?   New Zealand’s premier alpine and spa destination set amongst alpine vistas. ( I stole that from their website. Let’s just say it’s the most relaxing place in the South Island).  And what does Sophie want to do?

Run. Through icy rivers and up muddy hillsides. In the freezing freezing cold.

James and I left her to it and took our books to a warm cafe with squishy sofas and an open fire and superb ginger hot chocolates.

Thankfully there is one thing that we all like about Hanmer Springs. It’s just that Sophie has to splash and dive and hydroslide.  James and I prefer the benefits of the natural mineral waters and clean, clear alpine air. ( I stole that from their website too.) On a cold winter’s day, the hot spring is one of our favourite places to be.
