          Now Best Western Sails, it has large rooms with large balconies. It's close to the lake, and the rooms on the upper floor have a lake view.

          ... The walk took around 2 and a half hours to get there and back including stopping for a bite to eat and a drink. We are becoming real bargain hunters when it comes to cooking. We can't afford chocolate bars so we have the cheapest plain biscuits money can buy and chocolate spread to give us our sweet fix. Tea is becoming a range of rice and pasta variations. Matty is already struggling with the diet of rice, rice and more rice but a traveller has to give up on ...

We then cooked ourselves dinner and bumped into a fellow Stratfordian. It was nice to have someone who was from home and chatted about people we knew and about our different adventures through our time abroad. We then all headed to bed as Scarlett, Tory and Suze had an early rise for the Tongariro crossing the next day. ...

This morning, we pulled over to take a closer look. The tumbling blue water was heading downstream towards Huka Falls, where things get even more hectic. The falls are perhaps a mile from our campsite and now have an attached visitor centre and car park that can accommodate hundreds. No wonder; the spectacle ...

          ... but a bit cooler than the places I’ve been so far. Today it only got up to 70, it felt like Michigan! I’m staying with a family of four, including two little kids, 4th and 5th grade, which is a blast! After a full 24 hours with them now, they’ve finally started asking ME questions about myself, verses asking their mom, Fenella, questions about me in front of me, hilarious. Today, the girl, Lilja (pronounced Lillia), used some New ...

          ... lots of steaming water, bubbling mud pools and hot springs. We weren't treated to a geyser blowing but the so called "Hidden Valley" was excellent value (the snack in the cafe was pretty good also).

          From there we went back towards Taupo and viewed the Huka Falls, which were quite spectacular - not on the same scale as Niagra or Victoria but a good view, and very popular. There are lots ...
