Holiday Day Seventeen - Wanaka Day OneJuly 08, 2011
Don't know why even though I was on bed early last night, I couldn't really wake up this morning. Too tired I guess. I woke up 15 minutes before we left Queenstown to Wanaka. Have to brush teeth and packed quickly. Luckily it wasn't much to pack because I didn't simply throw my stuff around the room.
We have to stopped halfway because the route we took to Wanaka is by driving up the mountain. The road was iced and we couldn't drive up because we didn't chain the car tyre. Didn't know got such thing =X Our car got stuck and was falling but worse thing is, when we accelerate, the car is moving backwards. It was too slippery. We all went down the car and pushed while the driver accelerates again. While we are turning back, it slipped a little when the driver braked. Oh my, such a scary experience. We could have slipped off the cliff and died.
We took another route which is using the highway. It'll take more time to reach Wanaka but it's much more safer =X
Everyone went for skiing except for me, boyfriend, Elsa and Candy. It was too expensive and Elsa said she skied before but she doesn't like it, while Candy is still feeling unwell because of the car sickness.
Suddenly, everyone else came back and said they are not going skiing because it was too late and they decided to go skiing tomorrow. So we are going Puzzling World now (initially we're going tomorrow)
Then, we went to the Illusion Rooms. I guess I enjoyed it better here because it is warm and I can take more pictures !
It stopped raining so we went out to take pictures outside Puzzling World
After having lots of fun at Puzzling World, we went to New World to get dinner while others went to rent their skiing equipment
I'm having real fun in Wanaka. Love the place I'm staying, the view and scenary here. It's true that Wanaka is the place where you come to enjoy and relax while Queenstown is where you do adventurous activities.
Today is my last night here and we're leaving back to Dunedin tomorrow T_T
