... another 4 calls, we booked a room in Black Currant Backpackers, a former motel. It was a big room full of mostly younger travelers heading to or from the Alpine Crossing just south of Turangi.

Courtney and murphy went together first as Court is terrified of heights, then Yvette and I. We did the water touch, and got dunked up to our waists, it was awesome! We didn't expect to be dunked under as far as we did, but as soon as we got into the boat we wanted to do it again! Even now, as I write this two years to the date ...
