Day 17

A travel blog entry by becky_whitmore on Sep 06, 2014

The Tongariro Crossing was cancelled again today due to bad weather so we went on a hike of our own. We had to walk quite a distance to even get to the site of Mount Tauhara, about an hour or so, and then it was an hour and a half of steep climbing but we finally made it and the views were amazing. We chilled out, had lunch and chatted about the …

The weather is pretty rubbish today so we all decided to have a lazy day :-) Got up late, went to the library to upload my camera photos on to Facebook, had lunch, then we watched Bridesmaids and The Hangover 2 in the TV room; whilst the boys were getting the films to work me and Tash were discussing our favourite programmes and I remembered my …

Today we got to Taupo, the action centre of the north island! We passed Mount Ngauruhoe on the way which was used in the Lord of the Rings film as Mount Doom. Really wanted to do my skydive today but it's pretty cloudy so I decided to wait. We really wanted to do the Tongariro Crossing tomorrow but the weather is too bad and they have cancelled it …

I haven't written about New Zealand at all, mainly because I've been having the best time ever so haven't had any time to, so here goes: I arrived in Auckland to a massive temperature shock, I'd gone from nearly 40•C to around 5! In the airport a massive security man came up to me and started grilling me about where I was staying, if I knew …

The only fact of the day I remember is that Lake Taupo can fit the whole of Singapore in it. The rest is a blur. Before I had chance to blink my name was put down to do the skydive. Next thing I knew I was debating whether to do the 12000ft or 16000ft as if my life depended on it. Bottom line is falling out if a plane is falling out of a plane. …

    This hostel was alright. The room was fine but the beds were really rickety and noisy every time you moved in them. The kitchen is big but has no appliances. It has hobs but no ovens. It does however have a really nice sun deck off from the kitchen with nice views of the lake.

    The worst thing about this hostel is the noise. It is over the road from a really cheesy, crap nightclub playing horrible music. The windows let all the noise through, the hostel seriously needs to invest in some sound proofing! If you have any taste in music or any desire to sleep before 5am, think twice about staying here.
