It was quite bizarre as the water was around 40 degrees by the outlet and then if you went out into the river it was about 12... But as we're season Swedish sauna users we went back and forth to promote blood circulation.
Today we went up at 5.00 to take the bus at 5.30 to the Tongariro National park to do the alpine crossing and climb up Mount Ngauruhoe or as most of ...
