    ... a 19km walk up mount Doom. It's supposed to have the most incredible views, and meant to be an amazing experience. But unfortunately, the weather was so bad the day before so it was cancelled. I was actually so disappointed that I was even in such a mood for the next couple of hours haha but I can't moan because we still had an amazing day anyway, and you don't get to do everything in life ... So I got over it :) we can hardly complain ... We have still seen ...

    ... windy road led to our lodge (which was the only building in River Valley) and it was very rustic and quite cosy. We were introduced to one of the workers at the hostel who informed us we would have some sort of adventure in River Valley (even if it was just drinking at the bar) and pointed out our 32 bed dorm which he referred to as the 'orgy room'. Luckily we secured a 4 bed mattress ...

    ... back to the unit as it was too hot to be walking round now so we are going to sort out travel plans for next 3 days and enjoy the spa bath. We are off to Rotorua tomorrow taking in Haka Falls. But I had planned to do a 'slight' detour ( about 50 miles) and go to Hobbiton first to see Bilbo, Frodo and the gang. Then we can have a full day in Rotorua on Wednesday and hopefully on Thursday sample the delights of the Polynesian hot pools. That I'm sure will be very nice ...

    ... and we still had the entire walk back to Taupo.

    It was quite a walk and all in all it was around 15km when we arrived on the food street with a large appetite.

    Taupo, being a bit of a touristy town, there was a lot of choice and one of the owners (of grill@42) stood in front of his place and chatted up people to come in. He was just the right amount of pushy and left us to go and check the other places but was confident enough that we were going to return as ...
