Our first destination was Wanaka, famous for it's beautiful lake front scenery. A 43-km lake blessed with picturesque alpine panorama. It has been ranked in the top 10 of the world's most romantic getaway destinations (Published by Life Books, Dream Destinations: 100 of the World's Best Vacations).
I've been there once long time ago during autumn and it was stunningly charming. We were however, not very impressed this time round. The lake looked pretty ordinary and dull. Summer is obviously not the right time to visit Wanaka I suppose. The lake is only at it's best in autumn. To make matter worst, the time constraint we had is not at all helping in photo taking. We hope to make another visit this autumn if time permitted.
Saw these hay drums on the way......
We had a wee stop at Alexandra
We were out till dusk (9.30pm) and could only have a subway takeaway for dinner. The lady was real nice to let us in. We were their last customers of the day! (^_~)V
Another attraction of Wanaka, Puzzle World which offers many fun illusion designs that will certainly amaze you. We didn't go in this time as been there done that previously.
