We are loving Wanaka!  First - the drive in the surrounding area is gorgeous.  I've done a little driving but Eric is definitely mostly behind the wheel.  Here are some gorgeous photos I've taken while happily navigating. 

Sometimes we have to share the road with these cuties.

We enjoyed two days of hiking while in Wanaka, beneath beautiful blue skies.  The first hike was up Rock Mountain. 

The next morning we enjoyed our coffee and books next to the river front in Wanaka.  They are so well set up for camper vans, and it was pretty sweet to be able to pull out our chairs, make our coffee, and settle in for some time in the sun with our books.  In the afternoon we headed up Iron Mountain for a quick walk to see over the city. 

Evening was spent drinking wine waiting for our laundry to dry.  Camper van living in NZ is pretty sweet!
