Today we woke up reasonably late - about 8am and got ready to leave for 10am. There was a farmers market on a Sunday so we decided to see what it was like! As we had all the food we needed we didn't really buy anything. However we did buy a grilled cheese roll with garlic butter for £1. It's a strange concept - you roll up a slice of bread with cheese inside and grill it! Tasty though! We decided to head on after getting some cash and petrol. We headed up to Tekapo via ...
