We are not aiming to be zero waste, but we are quite happy with the limited amount in our rubbish bag at the end of five days.

We really enjoyed our day trip across Lake Manapouri, over Wilmot Pass and along Doubtful Sound. The commentaries were informative and interesting. The scenery was spectacular. The weather was varied. Thanks to Leanne at the isite for facilitating our transfers to Manapouri. People really struggle to understand that we don’t have a vehicle – just like in Tonga!

The supermarket and free food box have provided a variety of lunches and dinners, including eggs, fish and fresh veggies. Now we are all packed up from supply box 2 and ready to go tomorrow.
