Wanaka see more of New Zealand? (hee hee!)
L said on a number of occasions that he wanted to pick up a hitch hiker. But only if he/she looked like a backpacker who needed a ride. No crazy people allowed. Well, he finally got the opportunity. Saw a young guy with a bcakpack and ski boots on the street with his thumb out. Yep, he fit the description. Was going as far as we were to Wanaka which was only 50K away. So I hopped in the back, had the opportunity to take a short nap while L was happy to talk to someone other than me. Turns out he was staying at a campsite in town, so we decided that was as good a place as any to stay.
Another lovely, sleepy town on a lake with not too much to do - so we just chilled for 2 days. Not much to show for it but happy to save a bit of cash and be laszy for a while.
