While I was working at Furneaux Lodge a man came to stay in one of the suits, together with his wife and it turned out he was a wine maker in Central Otago. He invited me to come and visit him and try some of his wine when I was down there. So me and Annica decided to pay him a visit when we were in Queenstown as it was not very far. The wine he produces is called Bannock Brae Estate and they make fantastic pinot noir.
So we made our way out to the desert of Central Otago, and the gold mining town Bannock. The gentleman welcomed us with a nice, warm cup of coffee and we decided to go for a walk in the area, before coming back to his place in the evenin for dinner.
The landscape was remakable different from what we had seen before and it was actually rather warm. We also checked in to our accommodation as we didn't want to drive after we had drunk wine.
It was a very nice evening and the man gave us a phone number of a car mechanic so we could fix what needed to be fixed on the car as it failed the warrant renewal. He needed to order some things to fix it with so we stayed in Cromwell til he had organised himself and then come back on Monday t have it fixed. So we are now in Wanaka were we have visited Puzzling World which is a museums of illusions and mind tricks with a giant maze which we struggeled to find our way out from, but it was fun.
So right now in Wanaka waiting for the rain to stop so we can go out. Next stop is Alexandra before travelling north and up
over and out
