    ... day, I took Lucy and Clare with me to Haku Falls, the Craters of the Moon, and then a place called the Honey Hive! The Haku falls are not tall, but have a fantastic amount of water going over them. The Craters of the Moon was pretty good too, and the honey hive was great - I got mead and honey peanut butter. Soooo gooooddd. I brought them back to Taupo, then went on my way to Tauranga... read the next entry for that story!

We did enjoy a walkabout ...

    ... was a bed but we weren't able to check in until 1. Again we were homeless and just bummed around until the clock hit 1. As soon as we got into the room we showered and got into bed. The people in our room were horrible people. Massive, slutty ********s that shame the travelling name. All they did was bum around getting wasted and sleeping with everyone. While I was trying to sleep they were so noisy practically shouting. We spent most of the day drifting in and out ...

    ... you through a barren landscape past several volcanoes. It was absolutely freezing when we awoke at 5am for this walk but the sunrise over the beautiful landscape made it worthwhile. The temperature didn’t take long to warm up, and within a couple of hours we had gone from wearing a jumper, coat and trousers to being in shorts and a t-shirt.
