      ... and meet Bim - a traveller from the netherlands in a van who takes us all the way to Wanaka. This is our best hitch yet as we have a good laugh together.
      We get to Wanaka and check in to the YHA, which is a great hostel overlooking the lake and mountains. Wanaka is so beautiful, and the drive down was also stunning.
      It's the New Zealand vs Australia cricket final so we go to meet Bim and his friend in the pub to watch the match. It's a ...

      ... through the trees, and we were halfway up by the time we stopped for lunch at treeline. Here we slowed down further to enjoy the beautiful day and spectacular scenery unfolding around us. The terrain also became slightly more steep and challenging, with a few sections of steep, rocky cliffs that needed to be scrambled up. Luckily the snow was gone and the grass, which can be slippery, was dry. Certainly a steep hike, but not nearly ...

      ... as the south face of Mt. Awful looming above us. Once down the other side (a longer, less steep trail than our ascent route) we stopped for lunch before reaching the flats of Siberia Stream. From here it was a hot 45 minutes to Siberia Hut. It was at this hut that we found the best washing spot ever! Just a minute from the hut is a waterfall, and the water gathers in a deepish pool at its base, and as it’s not glacial fed the water is perfect for swimming in. ...

      ... waterfalls every where of all sizes. Crossing a small bridge there is one very powerful fall which is sending heavy spray onto the road. It was a great sight, but sorry no photo - it was head down and ride over as quick as we can. At the 45 km mark we reach the ominous sounding Pleasant Flat.

      Drove to Haast from Mt Cook and saw 'the Gates of Haast' along the way. A huge landslide happened years and years ago which brought down ginormous rocks and created a waterfall. Some of the rocks were bigger than cars! Hopped back into the car and checked into a hostel at Haast (a nice one!). We put our walking shoes on and went to Haast beach, which was covered in almost white sand. The waves were crashing so loud and the beach was covered in tree branches and logs! ...
