Day 7. 27.12.11
After six days on public transport and driving and bus riding for almost over 3500km with late night sleeps and I chat with people in the dorm then trouble sleeping as I dislike the time after sun comes down and everything is dark outside, eventually I was drop dead tired. I told Y that I'd like to wake up late and have my own day and simply do nothing but walking around downtown Queenstown or just sitting by the lake Wakatipu. She agreed and let me off, she choose to do another cruise to the farm where she can actually touch those farm animal without the animal grumpy attitude, LOL.
I checked out in the morning and drop my stuffs in the car then walking around to get some postcards, stamps, having brunch and sit by the lake only to write several postcards. Still not finished writing the postcards, Y finished her cruise and wanting some Patagonia chocolate, so I joined her and write more postcards and did my quick post there. From here we're heading towards twizel. We made a few more stops starting from Arrowtown, some random interesting spots, Omarama (only to buy pie and refuel), then Twizel to check in. From there we're checking out lake Tekapo and trying to capture the sunset. Sky was so pretty as if you burn them red.
It's been two and half months and I'm still scared of dark as it always brings back memories. I rushed back to the motel. Y asked "what's the speed limit here?". "err... 100" I replied. "aren't you kinda driving too fast?" she asked. "yeh, we're chasing the sun, I dun like driving in the dark in strange place, and I've seen no police nor camera on the way here, besides I'm following a local driver ahead of us". Well, I kinda drive this 7 years old tiny car like a sports car at 160kph, it took a while to pick up the speed tho, but it's a manual car, I can just juice it up, "right jucy-blue?" ***
