Three years ago, I packed everything I owned in my red old shitty Volkswagen Polo and moved to Wanaka from Wellington. Cheers the longest I've spent in one spot in a long time ❤ so much has happened and changed in those three years, and Wanaka is definitely not the same anymore, but I still love it to pieces, and no matter where I travel around the world, I'm always so happy to come home again. My heart soars every time I drive back into town after being away, and I get that first view of the lake and mountains. It never gets old. So grateful for so many amazing friends here, endless adventures and crazy memories, and of course, that beautiful nature. Here's to at least another 3 years in this magical little town at the bottom of the world #leftmyheartinwanaka #homesweethome

🎶 Out of the depths, into the light. No matter how much it hurts, don't stray from the light 🎶🤘🏻

Ever run a marathon in a rubber suit?
Just one of the challenges in Breca Swimrun, NZ's first swimrun race.

Ouch! Celebrating the most insanely beautiful and tough course I've ever done! 42kms of running and 8kms of swimming with this guy through Wanaka, NZ! Fair to say it was a long day..... @brecaswimrun #wanaka

Fresh glacier water - super nice to look at, but man it's cold! #eattravellove #nz #lakehawea

Fast laps through the trails of Wanaka gave me memories of a lifetime. Can't wait to be back! #demolitionparts #bmx #gopro #ilabb #wanaka

Alien crop circle? No, that’s just NASA’s newest balloon launch pad -- Aviators, skydivers and other altitude-seeking enthusiasts flying out of Wanaka Airport, New Zealand, are double taking at a new topographical feature reminiscent of an alien crop circle.

Rest assured, the nearly 2,000-foot (600-meter) diameter circle with a pie-shaped wedge on one side and spokes on the other is no extraterrestrial footprint and it’s definitely no hoax. It’s NASA’s newest launch pad for launching the agency’s most advanced high-altitude, heavy-lift scientific balloon: the super pressure balloon.

The four spokes emanating from the center and toward the west, each nearly 1,000 feet (300 meters) long, align with magnetic compass directions at 240, 260, 290 and 320 degrees. On launch day, balloon flight experts from NASA’s Columbia Scientific Balloon Facility will assess meteorological data and determine if the conditions are suitable to support a launch opportunity.
The new pad is the first major project in developing a long-term super pressure balloon launch site in #Wanaka . Earlier in 2017, NASA signed a 10-year lease with the Queenstown Airport Corporation to conduct balloon operations from a newly acquired piece of land adjacent to the Wanaka Airport.
