Here we go, day one of our ten day road trip of the South Island.
Lauren and I met at the Unistay apartments where we lived during our internships. She worked at Results Nutrition Center, while I interned at Lily and Louis, but you know that already. Anyways, the two of us, as you may have seen before, have rented cars and taken day trips over every weekend on the North Island. Now that our internship has ended, we decided to take to the South Island before returning home to our respective locations.
Our first stop: Wanaka. We drove 5.5 hours from Christchurch to Wanaka, checked into our quant AirBnB, and took a little adventure through the woods and to the lake for a few hours. The entire time, following different unknown paths until we looped back already and returned to the car. We came across beautiful lakes and trees, and always had the incredible snow-capped mountain ranges as the background.
Wanaka was absolutely beautiful. Its a shame, we were only able to stay for a little over one day.
Follow our journeys to the mountains, glaciers, lakes, and cities until we return to Christchurch. This is our final stretch; our chance to see the 100% pure New Zealand beauty thats out there.
