On to Taupo

A travel blog entry by hally_ollie


Today we got up and packed our bags again into the car for the short trip to Taupo. Along the way we stopped at some hot mud pools for a look these ones were larger than the ones that we saw in Rotorua the mud was shooting into the air. Then we continued driving down the highway and detoured via the Huka Falls. These were really spectacular and …

Fish supper

A travel blog entry by philg

Then we went through a phase of losing several fish where they had only been lightly hooked. Then we caught a few's great fun and very easy fishing.

Exhausted after walking so quickly to make the bus, we got a pizza and an early night, feeling good that we had conquered mount Doom. Tomorrow we plan to do something relaxed, maybe the free spas! ...

Cruising the North island

A travel blog entry by kausper


... the afternoon and after a hot shower, we explored some of the thermal & volcanic activity the region is famous for. Only a 20 minute walk, but pretty cool to see boiling mud pools and steaming ponds.

There's probably more we could have done on the North island, but we wanted to make sure there would be enough time the (supposedly even more beautiful) South island, so started our way to the ferry in Wellington to cross the Cook ...
