Squealin' in New Zealand

A travel blog entry by jrocci on Jul 19, 2014

... where I had an excursion lined up. The caves are famous for the bioluminence created by "glow worms" in the pitch-black caves. I had looked at a few options, including repelling and taking a boat, but for some reason I was most attracted to floating down the frigid water in a tube. Perhaps it was because I missed tubing in Vang Vieng, Laos, but I had the time of my life despite the fact that I couldn't feel my hands before even getting in the water. Kiwis do not ...

As we descended, there was even more volcanic activity in different seams in the mountain around us, which made it really fun to be hiking through this simmering volcanic wonderland. We have been up on Mt. Kilauea before (the active volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii), but even there you don't get to walk right in the midst of ...

The Tongariro Alpine Crossing of Win!

... the world famous Tongaririo Alpine Track. It was 19.4km to our pick up point at Ketetahi. We’d been given an estimate of six to eight hours to complete the route.

After looking at one another in a way that said ‘I can’t believe we’re actually here…!’ Debbie and I hauled our rucksacks on, took obligatory touristy pictures and hit the track, alongside the million other people who had decided to take on the walk that day.
