Taupo - cyclone day = duvet day!

A travel blog entry by lpringle


Today we were meant to do an 8 hour hike to Mount Doom and through the national park but Cyclone Luci hit and the weather was awful so it got cancelled. This lead to us spending half the day lying in bed in our big dorm chatting (we all agreed to get up for tea and Jo offered to go and by milk at 8.30am but didn't pull herself from bed to go to the shop until gone 11). Then we moved to the TV room and watched movies for the rest of the day and cooked out first ...

In the afternoon we went to the beach again but the weather was quite dull so we didn't stay long. We had Chinese for dinner and then finished ...

New Year's Eve- Skydiving!

A travel blog entry by sellers2013-14


... feel weightless (you are in one respect, because there is nothing to touch, but obviously, gravity is working very well, as you rapidly approach the descent speed of 120 mph!). The instructor taps you on the shoulder, which is the indication to spread your arms out and enjoy the free fall! The view is tremendous, and the feeling of speed is very palpable. As you smile for the camera, the wind fills your cheeks and flaps them uncontrollably, in a way ...
