Viewing Wanaka, New Zealand As The More Relaxed Traveler

As with every other place I visited in New Zealand, I didn’t do a lot of research before going to Wanaka. I didn’t even know it is a small town sitting on the edge of Lake Wanaka. Nor did I understand it is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream. I knew it is on the South...
