The biggest impression I get as we tour the south island is that it’s a place of incredible vistas. From the coasts to the mountains, no matter where you turn there seems to be wonderful views.
It continued to rain for the balance of the day which led to the decision to go with a B&B for the night to dry out. Yes, that officially makes us fair weather campers. I am OK with that.
Normally I would feel this was a lousy occurrence, however it turned out to be a great chain of events. Starting with a helpful lady from roadside assistance, then Alex from Wanaka Towing arrived. It is wonderful when you encounter people who are good. Alex, I believe is one of those people. He showed up in the rain and got our vehicle going, found a used starter for us, arrived at our B&B (which was in the next town) the next afternoon and installed the starter in the driveway. All for less than a roadside call out would have cost us in Canada. Customer service supreme, Thank you Alex.
This was our last stop before heading to our next house sit near Culverden, north of Christchurch. Can’t wait to soak in more of this beautiful country.
