Days 8 and 9: Glaciers to Wanaka

15 julio, 2013

Día 8: Glaciers to Wanaka
La previsión del tiempo iba a peor….Teníamos que ir a Wanaka (cerca de Queenstown) y el puerto de montaña estaba cerrado. Pensamos: ” continuamos hasta el próximo pueblo, Haast,  y si allí sigue cerrado el puerto de montaña, nos quedamos a dormir”, pero afortunadamente el puerto de montaña estaba abierto y pudimos llegar a Wanaka para reunirnos con nuestros amigos!
Mis amigos estaban esperándonos en Cardrona,cerca de Wanaka,  en un hotel con encanto y muy antiguo: Hotel Cardrona. Compartimos risas, historias y un vino caliente con canela y vino: Mulled Wine (NZ) or Vine Chaud (European). Me encantó!!!
Por la noche, en casa mis amigos, los hombres cocinaron cordero al estilo kiwi. Estuvo increíble!!!
Día 9: Wanaka
Estaba nevando cuando nos levantamos!
Pasamos el día con los niños y disfrutando de la nieve haciendo un snowman!!
Paramos para comer y seguimos disfrutando del resto del día tomando café, hablando, copita de vino, cocinando,seguimos hablando y seguimos hablando y riendo….
Han sido dos maravillosos días compartidos con buenos amigos. Pero el viaje tiene que continuar…


Day 8: Glaciers to Wanaka
The forecast was worse… We had to go to Wanaka ( near Queenstown) and the pass to go was closed and we thought to keep going and if the pass continued close we would have to sleep in Haast but finally the pass was open and we arrived to Wanaka with our friends.
My friends were wating for us in Cardrona, near Wanaka, in a historic hotel, Cardrona Hotel, and we shared laughs, stories and a hot wine with cinammon and lemon: Mulled Wine (NZ) or Vine Chaud (European). I loved it!!
At night, at my friends’s house, the men cooked a kiwi style lamb. It was incredible!
Day 9: Wanaka
We woke up and it was snowing!
My friends and us went to see the snow with the kids and they enjoyed a lot and made a snow man!!
We stopped to have lunch and we kept  enjoying the rest of the day drinking a coffe, chating, drinking some wine, cooking, more chating and laughing…
It has been two amazing days shared with good friends. But we have to continue the trip….
