    On top of the world in Taupo

    I found the top of the world in Taupo.
    Jumping out of a plane at 15,000ft, with the curvature of Earth in sight, was the most incredible adrenaline rush of my life.
    I hurtled towards the ground at 200km per hour, with -20C air rushing through my fingers.
    For those 65 seconds of freefall above the magnificent Lake Taupo I felt like I was flying.
    And when I parachuted back down to solid ground, with a massive, cheesy grin on my face, I felt ...

    ... cross country through rich farming zone about 150 km to Taupo. Filled up car at $2.39 per litre. Eeeek. That's why there are no toll roads. We are not pre-booking accomm but there are 20 motels around the lake front. Lake Taupo is huge as far as the horizon. If lots of vacancy signs showing, go upmarket to Reef Resort just out of town where we are offered a discount stand by rate cheaper than the booking sites. Dinner at Thai restaurant ...

    ... hobbits and orks. The thermal activity around Taupo rivals Rotorua, but instead of sulfur-dioxide it's carbon-monoxide shooting out of the steam clouds. It doesn't smell as bad, but it is a bit more deadly. That's right, we live life on the edge!  We walked down the river and saw the beautiful Hukka Falls, and around the steam valley of "Craters of the Moon." Before we left ...

    ... as if any more were needed. Neither of us have ever been anywhere like it. I can only liken it to something from a sci-fi movie. Even the intense sulphur gases couldn't spoil this place. As we descended still further we came across a sign reminding us we were in an active volcanic zone. Not far from the sign huge plumes of white steam rose from the side of the mountain. This site had erupted a mere two years earlier so we heeded the advice and quick marched along the ...

    I am still dumbfounded by how amazing this place and all the Kiwis are. After a nice 12 hour sleep, check in was a virtual breeze. Excitement is growing. The buzz was louder today. 42 or 52 countries represented, 1750 athletes set to start and almost all of them made it to tonight's banquet.
    I met a gentleman named Paul (not competing but jealous) who was from London. Last ...
