I went to Aoraki, which is also what european settlers call Mount Cook. In terms of the historical and cultural significance to the Maori, I found it quite fascinating. However, as a natural phenomenon, I was a bit underwhelmed. Unfortunately, I have just come from Antarctica, so my expectations are ridiculously high. I think I'm also just a bit overwhelmed with new experiences, and I'm about ready to get home. I hate to say it, but I think I might have to soldier through Sydney. Hawaii will be awesome, though.
