A travel blog entry by clearyf


... Quiet night that night. Sit around in lodge house, light a fire and have some beer and drinking games. Mon 5th Wet day but decide to go for a hike around Blue Duck farm. Some of the gang are gone horse riding, some gone goat hunting. A few of us headed up and over the hills. But sure it's raining for most of the way. One of the girls got very weak and almost fainted in us but we got her some food and rest and she got going again. She struggled at some points but ...

When we got back we were ready for a well earned showered and treated ourselves to burger and chips at a lake front bar. ...

Facing our fears - Taupo

A travel blog entry by capel


... t thought to book ahead as we have not had to for anything so far. We were still keen to head to a Geothermal park and the lovely lady recommended Orakei-Korako as you need to take a ferry across the Waikato river to enter the park and at least then we would be able to have a ride on the river.
