    ... park. We got to explore the waterfalls in the volcanic region - and of course we took many photos there. A lot of filming for the Lord of the Rings was done at the national park - which made it of course even cooler! The park was so pretty, and it was such a warm day so I ended up wearing my sunglasses and taking my jumper off. Jonny even walked it in flip flops! (But I'm sure he regretted that seeing as it was quite rocky and stoney). The park is dominated ...

    ... 4 was engulfed in not a faint but a potent sulphur stench. What was seen before was nothing compared to the geothermal activity in the city. Every direction you looked there seemed to be steam rising, a very active, very steamy geothermal park was smack in the middle of the city, sewer grates had steam flowing from them! We stopped for a bite of lunch and then returned to our hotel to plan some excursions in the area. At ...

There were parts where I was going so slow I thought I might start going backwards! After that we had another small flat walk where you reach the summit of Mount Doom, which you can choose to climb if you wish, which I didn't!

    ... geothermal springs were far too hot to properly
    enjoy, although it was nice to bath our feet in the hot running water for a
    short while after hiking all the way there – it would have been rude not to!

    An early night back at the camper, some food and a chilled

    had been given someone else’s sky dive photos!)
