... the horizontal rain. At 3pm I was picked up by friends from Brisbane (Amy, Brandon and Christian) who I was joining to hike the Tongariro Crossing (18km day hike) in Tongariro National Park.

It is also a world heritage site and includes Tongariro, Ngauruhoe and Ruapehu, all three of which are ...

... serenely, enjoying the incredible view, and wonderful sensation of flying.
The instructor asks if you would like to take over flying the parachute. Of course you say "yes" and you take hold of the straps. You pull ******* the right handle and you turn quickly to the right, then turn back to the left.
