Wanaka is a pretty place, all lake and mountains and a town smaller than its neighbour Queenstown. I hoped the weather would be good but today has been spectacularly hot. After a sleepy morning exploring the smart shops (very tempted by merino wool base layers and designer beanies) and lunch on the lake front in the sun, we spent a sweltering …

Desperate Housewife

A travel blog entry by erotergum


I decided today I needed to go out and go shopping. I haven't been shopping in a while and my multi-coloured leopard print back pack I got in Auckland had recently fallen to pieces.

... no need to wait for a bus and pay extortionate bus fares. Dais and I could take mini road trips on weekends of during holidays and see more of what the surrounding area has to offer.
