Wanaka and Queenstown

On February 13, we drove from Wanaka to Queenstown. Unfortunately we didn't get to spend a lot of time in Wanaka. We walked by the lake for a little bit but decided to head to Queenstown - especially since the back tire on the rental car seemed to be acting up.

So yes, more car trouble for us. I don't think we'll be renting cars anymore. We had to change out the two back tires. Apparently when you rent from Bargain Rental Cars, tires are our responsibility but the Queenstown Tyre Services technician said he couldn't fix bald tires. So, Bargain Rental Cars will reimburse us, thankfully!
