Fire Alarms

A travel blog entry by edddadams


... collected the car, enroute stopping at Chows, the restaurant where George Nash had been working for the last 6 months. We wanted to covet some distance and headed 5 hours north to stop over night at Taupo. We had stayed overnight at a Swiss style chalet run by a Malaysian guy who was very hospitable. We were overlooking Lake Taupo. A large crater of a volcano which was formed by an explosion in AD 186. The lake is 239 sq ...

A travel blog entry by capel
