Somewhere near Dohuk and the 4,000 year old town where the three wise men possibly began their journey to Bethlehem is a Christian monastery set high on a mountain with commanding views of tremendous scenery. Sadly, our driver had no idea where it was and I only managed to get directions by e mailing a friend in Hawaii.
I watch in awe as the rich, luscious, inviting colour fills up my entire view. Then I realise I'm not looking at the sky. I'm looking at water. I've arrived at New Zealand's fourth largest lake, Wanaka. An expanse of water that reaches over 192 square-kilometres, it's quite simply one of the most beautiful sights I've ever seen.
