      ... we literally dunked our bodies in, did a quick little paddle then began our hike back. We could enjoy the view a little more on the way back as we weren't rushed. The falls, hills and river were so beautiful and well worry the hike! After returning to our room, showering and changing we headed out for some food and drinks. We had a drink at the bar attached to our accomodation called Element Bar. We asked the bar staff here for ...

      ... and an ideal base for the Tongariro Crossing.

      We arrived at the lake house on Thursday evening and set about warning up with the help of a couple of electric heaters, a bundle of blankets and a curry and got an early night, in preparation for what we had been promised would be a challenging walk. I should probably fill you in on the weather over here. It is spring time here in New Zealand, which is fairly similar to spring time in England - gloriously crisp sunny ...

      ... stunning landscapes. Upon our return we jumped on a coach that saves you the walk up through the valley. This was a bonus as for the first time since our arrival in NZ the rain swept in. We jumped in the car and headed south to Taupo. It was Hazel that saw the police car. Apparently I'd driven past it going the other way but hadn't noticed. I was too busy looking at the scenery. Apparently he practically did a handbrake turn and it was then that I noticed ...

      ... didn't get a root hold here until after 1917 when Frying Pan Lake finished blasting into the sky and finally settled down. It's this lake where we stop and take photos and marvel in the spectral plumes blanched white by the setting sun. The water from the lake hurries down the valley and we go with its flow, but from the safety of firm ground until we call time and return to the car park in a courtesy coach. There's ...

      The journey to New Zealand was somewhat of an ordeal. With plenty of time to spare we arrived at the bus stop. But at 5:20am our bus decided to drive straight past us; we were not the happiest of campers. With the next bus not until 6:00am, we begrudgingly hopped into a taxi. And of course we got a right prick! I did not think I would be having an argument with a Russian man, who sounded exactly like Gru from Despicable Me, at 5:30am but I ...
