A Breathtakingly Blue Lake - Lake Pukaki

A travel blog entry by jenandjake


... getting excited about coming to see us in Hawaii which I can't wait for either...eee! I'm too excited haha. There's 3 girls on the bus who have been asking one of the drivers who he slept with last night and its taken them 2 hours of questioning to work out who it was which was quite tiresome to listen to to be honest.
