      ... for the first time, we find ourselves spending the night half way up a volcano. The views are amazing, both looking up to the top of Mount Ruapehu, and out across to the other volcanoes and half of New Zealand beyond.

      Whilst having dinner, enjoying the peace and tranquility of being half way up a volcano, a wedding party randomly turns up. Three pick up trucks with the bride, groom and their guests in the back drive up and they get out ...

      When we were at Waikite Thermal Pools Campground we got speaking to some west coast Kiwis who recommended the drive around Lake Taupo and the Volcanic Mountains. They spoke about how beautiful it was seeing the mountains with snow on their peaks. The weather forecast appeared favourable so we decided to do the figure of eight loop and weren't disappointed.

You can hike up all the way to the Mangaturuturu Clacier and make the Corner Edge Trek which I did not make since it is not advisable to go by yourself and there was nobody around which was willing to ...

      ... more on breathing! Usually, I just talk to Ruari, and that's grand, but today I had the opportunity to talk to Suzee and it made the day even more enjoyable. We made great time and finished the walk in 5 hours 44 minutes, not the recommended 7-8 hours, and I think we were able to plough through so quickly because we were having such great fun. Others in our group found the walk a little boring, but that was only because they were walking alone ...

      ... its free wifi to check emails as the hotel where we were staying only gave each of us 30 minutes of free wifi to be used within the first 24 hours of our three night stay there. Needless to say we were not impressed by that. Then back to the hotel. We stopped shortly before we got there to take a short walk to see a waterfall, the Tawhai Falls. They are on a pretty little river deep in a small wooded valley. Very different from the land around it which is a windswept plateau ...
