The Shire and The Cave

A travel blog entry by handytravels


... greenery and fresh air. The walking track was very much amongst it too; it almost appeared to have been untrodden for months as the bush seemed determined to engulf the pathways. This meant there was a lot of edging through hedges and shrubs, which meant for a lot of Hannah jumps at the slightest tickles of what may or may not be creepy crawlies. Upon reaching the car park we had a selection of potential routes to choose from but had selected ...

Waitomo - Black Water Rafting Caving Experience

A travel blog entry by lpringle


... set of tunnels which got us all a bit scared about how small the caves were going to be, as well as luckily all passing the breathalyser test!

Glow Worms

A travel blog entry by jasonandgaryn


... both interesting and fun to explore. On the ride back we learned that Lake Taupo, a large lake in the North Island, is actually a super volcano. It is apparently 900 years overdue for an eruption and when it does erupt it will be enormous. Its last eruption was discovered by Italy and China because the volcanic dust reached all the way to those countries from the last eruption 1800 years ago. We are going to hope that it stays dormant for another 900 years or so, just to be ...
