... step off. Not jump, just step. Erm, ok then. It was awesome fun, if a slightly odd experience. So much fun was it that we did it again straight away, backwards. That felt easier to do but the sensation was more intense; imagine falling backwards onto your bed or sofa only to find that the soft upholstery had been replaced with a fall into the abyss. 60m later our fall would be turned into a pendulum swing that would have even Tarzan looking for a clean loincloth. We exaggerate ...

New Zealand - the North

... with very friendly and helpful people, excellent roads, a
proud and respected Maouri culture and inspirational scenery; we can

... one!!! Well, Lake Tekapo was a beauty. A lake of crystal clear glacier water surrounded by rolling hills. With hikes all around, a camp spot nearly on the water and a BBQ spot to die for overlooking the lake. It was pure beauty and taking my breath away. While prepping and cooking dinner the hills turned orange by the setting sun, the clouds distinctively hung amongst the hills and then the moon looking at itself in the lake as to show of his beauty.
