Put on your Yamaka, it’s time for Wanaka!

Put on your Yamaka, it's time for Wanaka!

Thursday, December 5, 2013

After a very eventful week, Emily and I were looking forward to a retreat in Wanaka. The town mimics a quiet version of Queenstown, which made for a very relaxing few days. Our stay at Wanaka Backpaka was fantastic, and even though we had to fight a hill with our increasingly growing backpacks to reach our oasis, I am convinced that the view from our common room is the best in town. Do you not agree, Waldo? It was the exact inspiration I needed to update my writings. If you are looking for a peaceful getaway, I would definitely suggest staying here.

The weather during our entire stay was flawless without a cloud in the sky. I actually got a touch crispy after hiking to the top of Mount Iron, the highest summit in the immediate Wanaka area. Between unwinding by the lake, preparing more dinner โ€œspecials,โ€ and indulging in the regionโ€™s finest beverages, Wanaka was a great place to recharge our batteries before venturing up the West Coast this upcoming week.
