    Leaving Hamilton behind us, we left promptly as we had an appointment at Hobbiton, (really Matamata). We had booked to go to the location of where The Lord of the Rings and latterly The Hobbit (Parts 1,2 and 3!) had been filmed. It was on the way to Rotorua anyway, where I would be staying for the evening. Guy had been some 8 years before, but then …

    ... Petra, Vici, Karla and two other German girls whose names I can't remember because they only stayed with me for one night.

    ... had a list of all the countries people were from and we all had to sing a song from that country. This one woman who was from Israel was rather odd, she sang all seriously and harmonised and it had Daisy and I in absolute stitches. We were taking the mick a bit (much to everyone's despair) but we were cracking up. All the countries did their songs, we sang Swing Low. By the end we were chanting the wheels on the bus... no one was laughing but us. And we ...

    ... the pictures - it's absolutely stunning. Around every corner you find something truly amazing to look at. Unfortunately you also find very, very steep hills and unsteady ground - these are volcanoes after all! Added to that, there are areas of the track where you're not allowed to linger because said volcanoes may erupt at any moment. I suspect that an element of fear, rather than fitness (in my case at least), led to us finishing the course in ...
