Nice spot on lake

A travel blog entry by rspear


Now in Taupo. This is NZ largest freshwater lake and town is nicely situated right at the shoreline. Was very rainy and dreary last night, but rented a DVD and stayed inside. Apartment is very nice, and has in-floor heating from thermal undergound bore. This is also used to heat the small hotel pool, which is kept at 35C!

... was the most fun I've had on this trip. Not as terrifyingly stupid as a 134m bungee or a huge ledge swing, but thrilling enough to be exciting and a good 2 1/2 hours on the Tongariro River in some of the most gorgeous scenery I've seen on this trip.

Speaking of Tongariro, I did the Tongariro crossing which is what Lizzy was alluding to above. It's a 19km walk that's been voted New Zealand's best day walk and I can see why. It's a part of the world that was ...

Canadian Girl in a Kiwi World

A travel blog entry by tayrae

... without shoes. I thought it was weird and dirty at first, but I’m coming around! Shoes are overrated, anyway.

The people here speak English but the accent takes a bit of getting used to! They also have some interesting slang, phrases, and names for things. Many of these I had already heard before through encounters with kiwis in Canada or abroad. Others totally threw me for a loop! Some easy ones, for example, are referring to sidewalks as footpaths, to ...
