We spend our last driving day getting from Wanaka to Te Anau. It will be nice to be able to ditch the car, especially as we have nearly run out of songs in my iPod’s 1980’s playlist with which to play “Name That Tune”. Dave is having to work too hard to skip over tracks that we’ve already guessed.
Te Anau is yet another beautiful community on the side of a sparkling lake rimmed with hills. Yeah, whatever. This afternoon is devoted to blogging and strolling around at leisure. We need to get to bed early, as we’re being picked up very early tomorrow morning to go kayaking in Milford Sound.
There are only a few days left before we fly home. We’re still having lots of fun, but more and more, I’m catching myself having vivid fantasies about my Tivo. And sleeping in my own bed. And driving on the right side of the road again. So it won’t be too painful to head home. (Especially as I’ll still have three weeks of sabbatical time left! Woo hoo!)
