Day 29 : Wanaka
I set off early today to Lake Wanaka. I’d already passed through it a few days earlier en route to Queenstown so I was looking forward to a return visit.
When I got there it was fair chucking it down so I nipped to the shops and picked up supplies for the next few days.
In the evening I hit the local cinematorium, ‘Cinema Paradiso‘ to see Godzilla. I’d had high hopes for this as the director was the same chappy who made the brilliant ‘Monsters’ back in 2010.
What a quirky brilliant little cinema this was – full of character! They have a great little trailer about Wanaka before the film starts as well as – just nice little touches that I’ve found all around New Zealand.
It was also the first time I had ever watched a movie from inside a car 😀
‘Godzilla’ was immense. I loved it from start to finish. Didn’t feel too Hollywood at all. Thoroughly recommend it!!
Afterwards I headed back to the backpackers, cooked some pasta and caught some much needed Z’s. I was on the top bunk again which is always a bit exciting – waiting on that 3am THUD ‘Aaah, so I’m on the floor now’ moment 🙂
