Toga party

Wegens het slechte weer was de tongurua crossing helaas gecanceled. Er was een cycloon dus er zat niks anders op dan de dag doorbrengen in het hostel met wat films. De nacht doorgebracht in onze toga's!

Taupo it is!

Onderweg naar Taupo een vulkaan bezocht en de krater van dichtbij bekeken, heel anders dan dat ik had verwacht. Pas laat gearriveerd en een kleine hangover dus na een film het bed ingedoken.

Going Back To Taupo

A travel blog entry by jenandjake


My alarm woke us up at 6:30am this morning which wasn't too bad as I was already awake I had been trying to get back to sleep but couldn't for a while. Jake skyped home from my ipad to say Happy 17th Birthday to Soph, they all were laughing at Sophie as she had been crying over the passport picture of herself that Allison had put on to her …

After driving for 4 hours from Wellington we reached Lake Taupo, still an hour away from the town of Taupo itself. The lake is absolutely massive- its the size of Singapore where theres a larger population than NZ!

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.
