Day 18: January 25, 2014
This morning I was greeted to a large market around the lake in Queenstown. Artisans brought their handicraft and the prices were much more reasonable for many of the same items I saw in stores throughout New Zealand. They also had unique items. It was quite fun looking at the wares and talking with the vendors. Later there was music in a grassy area where people were taking in the sun. A few other brave souls ventured into the lake swimming.
There was a hamburger place that was constantly busy called Ferberger. The burgers were good. They also had a bakery where the wares looked delicious. I had a beef and cheese pie. Meat pies are popular in New Zealand.
Today was my last full day in Queenstown. Tomorrow I begin my three day trek back home.
