****DAY THIRTY-NINE (Saturday, January 10th) - I HEART WANAKA!!!*****
I had such a mellow day in Wanaka. I did things like - MY LAUNDRY (very needed at this point), went grocery shopping and bought some new facial soap/sunblock/etc. I felt like I was doing some maintenance. I also bought some Berrocca....it's kind of like EmergenC...but I think it has more Vitamin B too or something. Anyway, it's a great hangover cure & I think I had one too many glasses of Sheep Shaggers the night before with Emer and Ronan. :)
The two girls (ladies? women? i never know what to say!) who were staying in the room next to me invited me to go on a hike with them, but I really wanted to just chill and not do much at all.
I spent most of the day just wandering around, checking e-mail, etc. and guess who I ran into?!? Sheila and Larry Brown! I ran into them in the internet cafe and then again outside a pizza restaurant. So, I sat down with them again and had such a nice time chatting with them. And wouldn't you know that they are both Jewish therapists from New York?!? Just so perfect - I loved meeting them! :)
Then, Dolores & Lisa were back at the hostel and invtied me to dinner. We went to Relishes, which was DELICIOUS! I really liked that restaurant. Great service, great food (I had this yummy pasta with pine nuts & mushrooms!), and great wine.
I could tell immediately that I was going to love Wanaka & that I didn't want to leave after just a couple days!
