Travel Blogs from Taupo

North to Mount Doom

A travel blog entry by toddlerontour


... until about 5 seconds after we got back from our walk, really set in. Paradoxically the weather on the mountains improved no end and out of nowhere appeared Mt Ruapehu with a fresh blanket of snow. Spectacular. Shortly afterwards as we were pulling out of the car park appeared Mt Ngauruhoe, the sight of something so imposing which we hadn't even realised we were that close to was really incredible and made the trip up to Whakapapa feel very worthwhile. ...

Land of Lord of the Rings

A travel blog entry by heidilockwood


... a fat woman took Josie's sandwiches (she said cream cheese wasn't allowed, but it was lunchtime and she was clearly just hungry), and I nearly had to give up my shells!
But we were in Auckland, yay! While Auckland is a lovely city, compared to Sydney it's a bit boring really. It has a rather nice, free art gallery and park, and lots of places to eat, but all in all a little uneventful. On our last day in New Zealand's biggest city, we took a ...

I just really want a Greggs

A travel blog entry by charlyhurford


... but the instructor I had, Dave, was lovely and soon we were at 15,000ft sitting at the open door of the plane with nothing to do but fall...

"High five!!" yelled the instructor, as we successfully navigated a particularly notorious rapid. As we clunked our paddles together I couldn't help thinking about how much I was enjoying being part of a team, something that I don't usually excel at. It was nice.

Uh...yeah...that's enough emotions Lizzy. But honestly I'd have to agree ...

Day 24 Turangi and Taupo

A travel blog entry by stuartandsue


... Showered under the hot spring inlet! No soap! Another pie for lunch from the Turangi Bakery. First class! Took a ride (15 minutes) to Tokaanu spring and mud bubblings. Can't call them mud baths because you were not allowed in but it was that sort of thing. Anyway it was a very interesting walk around the pools. Too late for the hangi! Although the smell of roast lamb still lingered. Tea was BBQd spare ribs of lamb and a Greek ...
