Arrowtown in Winter
The name itself is already inviting - sounds so classic kind of town. It’s a small town in the Otago Region and just few minutes drive away from Queenstown and it’s another NZMUSTDO.
As we were driving in - noticed immediately how the mountain ranges surrounding the town is covered with Autumn-kind of trees and leaves, mix of orangey to yellowish clusters. Not the full bloom Autumn-kind but still beautiful to the eyes. It is definitely the winter season, but Arrowtown is lookin half half. And that is where I realised… Spring or Autumn or Winter... my favourite season must be Autumn! If there's such thing as fave [lols!]. I felt that confirmation from within during that drive to Arrowtown. This should be extremely beautiful during Autumn and I’d be surely delighted to be back then!
Exploring and walking around the town…phew! This is where history meets: nature, interesting local architectures, lovely small shops, cottages, churches, beautiful and warm people all around, deliciously smelling cafes and restaurants. The special aroma of chocolate from one corner pulled me in and interestingly they are selling Lavender Hot Chocolates, even Ginger Hot Choco! How perfect is a sip of that on a winter season! Must Do must do too! [Excited kid in me kicks in again. ;)]
Thank you beautiful Arrowtown, was truly wonderful visiting and poking you!
May I see you again in the Autumn season!
