      ... to chat to various people and finding out everybody else's travels, home lives, etc. I am safe in the knowledge that I am not the only one doing a post uni, career delay, travel trip!! We ventured on through, stopping off at a service station, literally in the middle of nowhere. Now I felt like I was in an American wilderness!! We arrived at a River Valley, a lodge so secluded that even the bus couldn't drive down the hill to it! We didn't mess about as ...

My initial reaction was oh god but after a split second it was the best feeling ever! I can't wait to do it again now that I got the taste of it.

      The roadtrip to Taupo was significantly nicer than Welly to Napier, coming in at just 2h30. I stopped off at this beautiful, subtly marked waterfall that the Swiss guy had recommended.
