Satisfactory but not amazing

A decent enough hostel, but certainly not the best; generally cold most of the time and just not all that homely. It's one of those hostel which receives 90% of its custom during the winter for the ski season, and that's what it kinda feels like - a place to dump your stuff before heading out elsewhere. Provides everything you need, but lacks that little extra which makes a great hostel.

Well trodden, but well worth it

... of vegetation and a very grey and bleak landscape. It was offset nicely however by the blue skies over head.

After our first hour of uplift we reached South Crater (5400 Ft) and had headed into cloud. This created a thoroughly surreal experience. Having hiked up to a height higher than any in the UK we suddenly found our selves in a massive open space which was as flat as a pancake. We marched along faster on the flat terrain each of ...

... and marinated broccoli and carrots. It was delicious! All mouths were fed, clean plates, all were happy! Later in the evening we hopped into the hot tub and enjoyed the jet sprays. It was so relaxing sitting in the tub under the stars. On getting out of the tub it was pretty cold so had to make a dash back to the room to warm up again. As the evening drew to a close it was time to ...

... we were unlikely to see them. We went for another drive, setting off down a different local road to look at the scenery. As we were in the National Park there were few farms and even fewer towns in the area. We travelled northward, with the road running alongside the railway line to a town called Taumarunui. It turned out to be larger than many of those we have stopped at in the past. We had coffee and tea in a cafe and then went across the road to the public library. ...

... four seasons. We had the rain showers of spring, the heat of summer, the frost of autumn, and the snow of winter. We climbed two active volcanoes, was in the presence of a third, crossed a desert, saw two waterfalls, witnessed exotic colored lakes and craters, and so much more. Indescribable is the only word I can think of. The scenery, the landscape, the temperature, all changing constantly providing the mind with a sensory overload of natural beauty that only these tiny Pacific islands could ...

... need to make sure they are sick in the buckets provided and not in the toilet or in the sea. Once I had fully dressed I needed a wee and squeezed myself into the tiny cubical and undressed and considered that if you tried to be sick in there you could get stuck quite easily. When the time arrived I was a little cautious in my approach in getting in the water. On the back of the boat was a platform at water level which you sat on with your legs in the water and slide ...
