This morning was our first time in ages to sleep in. Scar and I took full advantage in Room 212, whereas Tor and Rach woke up earlier for runs and Facetimes. We met up in the communal kitchen/lounge area at midday - Tor & Rach had already hit the shops to buy hats to combat the low temps and the snow. Tor was in the midst of preparing for her bungy.

- On the bus down to Queenstown we stopped at a couple different places, but one of the more memorable parts was going by lake wanaka.
- The water was amazingly clear and calm, with perfect reflections of the mountains.
- We were planning on visiting for a day, but didn't make it
