Volcanoes and Diamonds

A travel blog entry by edandkate


... another mountain ridge. Here we got a view of the blue lake and the other side of the valley. It was again pretty windy up there and Kate was keen to get out of the wind. Ed was acting a bit strange and mumbling and Kate said to him "if you are muttering I can't hear you" as she had her hood up to protect against the weather. Ed then stopped to tie his shoelaces and started playing around with the video camera. Little did Kate know (marching on ahead) ...

Taupo & its Lake

A travel blog entry by phil100652


... much more scenic again as we've moved further north into the centre of North Island but we're glad we didn't pre-plan to spend more time lower down the North Island.
