          Nice place. Very quiet.

          This was a nice hotel. Nothing fancy but being made entirely from wood makes it a bit different.

          We woke up early today as we wanted to be on the road by 8:30am latest. We actually left just before that. On check out, the receptionist showed us the guest book that the cast and crew of LOTR had signed when they stayed there during filming of the first films and The Hobbit. We had stayed in the same room as Sean Austin aka Samwise Gamgee. We …

          We've had two tiring days in a row now so today was always going to be a lazy one. We woke up around 8:00am and had tea and breakfast in bed. Today was our official washing day. We had planned this before we had even left home so we knew it was coming. Rich went down to reception to get the tokens for the washer and dryer then we both marched to …

          Today we left Rotorua and had to say goodbye to John, our host at Robertson's House. We wished he could have come with us as our personal guide as he knew so much about the area and has been so helpful during our stay. However he had to stay so we said our goodbyes and headed back south again past the place we went to yesterday but only a few miles …

          ... the mountains for a few hours, stopping at the top for a bit where there was a beautiful view. There was a baby lamb running around with no mum, so Tash radioed down to the farm, who said they had the mother there, so Tash caught the lamb and carried it back with her on the horse. Of course, we all had pictures with the lamb on our horses too. We then trekked back down to the stables. It was only a ...

          ... travelling among hardy wind-blown vegetation. The volcanoes loomed on our right side and the mist slowly drifted towards us. It started raining as we passed through Waiouru. Heading east the scenery changed again. There were forest plantations and, surprisingly, pastureland again. We arrived at Ohakune five hours after we had set off from Rotorua. Normally it's a 3 hour trip, but we didn't mind taking our time to enjoy a few stops along the ...
