    ... in their little cinema room. We were woken up by the rain hammering our campervan in the morning, another rainy day it seemed. The rain ended our chances of doing a skydive in Taupo. We wanted to do it here because apparently the views are amazing of the lake and the surrounding mountains but we've decided we'll do it over the Great Barrier Reef instead. I suppose that won't be a bad place to do it either! Rain Jackets on, we decided we'd brave the rain and walk around ...

    ... We stopped off to grab some fish to bbq after that and the guy at the fish counter was super helpful. Once he found out that we were on holiday he made a point of walking us through a variety of local fish and once we had settled on a fish he grabbed us some filets from tomorrow's stock. He didn't want us to go home and say that Kiwi fish was rubbish.

    In the end the fish was good, wine questionable, and it's certain that I'll still be hurting tomorrow.

    ... in the middle of no where with hot water. A perfect place to relax for the night and returned the next day to experience it in day light too.

    We also visited Huka falls in Taupo and drove around some of the lake, the largest lake in New Zealand. Taupo town had a lovely feel to it and on one of the nights we treated ourselves to an amazing Indian feast, something we had both strangely been craving.
