The 2014 edition of the long running annual Wanaka trip is now underway, this time off to a rather soggy start. Been raining in the region all day and warm. Haven't actually seen the mountains yet. First view from the plane once it got below the cloud flying into Queenstown was of lake Wakatipu. Then the usual sense of anticipation on the bus trip towards Wanaka getting the first glimpse of familiar peaks was also missing.
