    ... 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 ...

    Rain has stopped and can see the lake again. Had a spa bath last night really relaxing. Slept quite well but bed a bit soft and the attachment for the electric blanket !,,,,, dug in now and then. No doubt you need it in the winter. Most houses are wooden maybe with brick skin but no double glazing or central heating. Glad to be here in their summer. Had to get 2 new front tyres on the rental ...

    Our Campsite was the town park car park so no stunning views in the morning. But we got a free alarm clock as they starting laying concrete at 7am!

    We really enjoyed our time on North Island. We both said that this time in New Zealand we got ...

    ... dunes!! After that we drove along 90 mile beach and then dipped our toes in the Tasman sea! Two oceans in one day- pretty cool!! We were promised the best fish and chips in the world after this but unfortunately they didn't live up to expectations- the British definitely do it better! The next day in the bay we went on the Dolphin seeker cruise. This was a 4 hour cruise to many of the different islands which are in the Bay. We saw pods of bottle nose and common ...

    Today we all caught a bus to Taupo and walked to Taupo Bungy which is the worlds highest water touch bungy!
    We passed the volcano that had erupted only a few weeks earlier, that had made us unsure of our trip as airports were shut for quite some time, but we made it!
    Lake Taupo is so beautiful, and the river is crystal clear, its so lush and green over here and I cannot believe the clarity of the water.

    We all payed for our tandem bungy and lined ...
