    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 ...

    ... ranged from well seasons outdoorsmen to teenagers outfitted in Keds and a fanny pack. I would like to think we fell somewhere in-between regarding experience level... The partially overcast day did not detract from the beauty of the trek in the slightest. Yes, there were steep ascents where taking your eyes off the path towards the park floor could have compromised your life, but we had plenty of time to stop and take it all in. ...

    ... of you who saw my photos from the Big Banana in Coffs Harbour, I had THAT kind of scale in my head. A humungous L&P bottle! Totally worth a two hour detour for if you ask me.

    We arrived in Paeroa around lunch time after an entire morning in a baking hot car. Neither of us were in the finest fettle and I just wanted to get out the car, stretch my legs and have a nice sit down lunch. Where else, thought I would be better than the L&P Café itself? Mattijs however, ...
