Tongariro National Park

A travel blog entry by lilianbrett


... it was cold and the doubt set in. It would only have been another 15-30 mins till we were over the summit and were so close to the halfway point it was painful. The kids told us it was rough going and the down section was even more dangerous, we were both worried about the wind knocking us off our feet and the track was worryingly close to a sheer drop. The last push would have been the most exposed and with great regret we decided it wasn't ...

2nd attempt

... fuel pump, which seems to be much better now. So.. I set off from puhoi at 2-40pm Wednesday 12 March 2014.

A travel blog entry by tom.terryhannan


... A LONG walk out up these terrible stairs, of course Tom thought it was no big deal and followed me out. I think one of us is in shape and the other definitely is NOT. LOVED the glowworms, you could see them on the roof and in some spots they were close enough you could see the threads they send down to capture insects for food. It cost us $122.00 each to be abused LOL, in hindsight we could of taken a nice boat ride to ...
