So what have I been doing? The Pioneer finished in Queenstown and after the best part of a month doing odd jobs, staying with various people and on various sofas I upgraded to "The Cupboard" Kings Drive, Wanaka. Unfortunately the hunt for the type of design and making work I found up north wasn't making any ground. Caleb who I had met in Morzine and whose cupboard I was living in put me in touch with a local builder, Perry. I've been working with Perry since. Almost exclusively on his own place just out side town. We'll be putting the finishing touches together over the next couple of weeks, and after my initial internal struggle over not really finding what I'd set out for I'm starting to realise how much I've learnt over the last couple of months. Not only that but how lucky I am to have found such an easy going guy to work for.
Perry has been a stand out and we've squeezed in the odd powder day when the snow has been on point. I'm stoked to have been part of their project and to have seen a whole build take place while living in an insanely beautiful part of the world.
It's not all been sunshine and rainbows there's been a couple of hiccups, both physical and mental but all in all, life is good in the southern hemisphere.
Weekends at the end of summer were spent exploring, from hut missions with strangers to catching up with increasingly old friends. Since the snow arrived I've done my best to make the most, weekend warrior style....
So I thought I'd share a few pictures, kinda miscellaneous adventures of the last few months in Wanaka. Over the next couple of weeks I might even go into some more detail on the bigger ones. Chronocologicallishly.
