    The day started with a trip to the laundromat as the hotel dryer was blowing cold we we were surrounded by pants!! So I sat in there watching MTV while Hazel went for a run along Lake Rotorua. We returned to the hotel for a jacuzzi (tis a hard life) before loading up the car and heading off. First stop was the Waimangu Volcanic Valley, a short 35 …

    ... rock-climbing. At times you had to pull yourself up on ropes provided so you didn't slip off the cliff. The higher we climbed, the windier and colder it was. I honestly thought I was a goner. Every step you took, rocks beneath your foot would fall causing you to slip. It took me a reasonable amount of time to reach the top of the difficult ascent. I kept thinking of my Gramps' saying, 'Can do, will do'. The views from the top were amazing - we could see the ...

    ... Unfortunately Scott's ride wasn't as great as mine. He felt sick the entire way and didn't feel good on landing either. Poor thing! I felt awful because he didn't enjoy it like I did! We got our video and photos before being taken back into town to our accomodation. What a massive day! We were feeling extremely tired from lack of sleep and Scott still didn't feel good after his skydive so we decided to get an easy late lunch/ early dinner as we hadn't eaten ...
