    Exactly what you want in a motel room, it was clean and tidy with a decent kitchen and a heater which actually warmed the room. We also scored a room with a small gsarden out the back..this was lovely and we wish it had stopped raining so we could use it!

    ... off until the clouds cleared. We only had a limited time-slot as we were being picked up by the Stray bus, so we all prayed for the clouds to clear. Apparently sky diving through clouds can really hurt! Just as it seemed that we would not be able to jump, the conditions were right and we were all crammed into a small plane and air bound! I did some meditative breathing on the way up as the ground disappeared. We were given oxygen at a certain altitude, but when we hit 15,000 ...

    ... Park, now I'm not quite sure what I expected when Matty said he was taking me to the free hot springs in the river but when he told me to grab my bikini I did think he was a little mad. We walked to the pools and literally just off the side of the freezing river are 3 or 4 pools at different levels full of hot water. We ended up in the bottom pool but the higher you go the hotter they get. It was a little strange to be sat in a river with a little waterfall which on ...

    ... laugh all the way around, enjoying the wilderness and another lovely day (we were so lucky with the weather as it can be very grey and wet out here).

    A long drive followed and we didn't reach our next stop, Wellington until gone 9pm. We had stocked up and so settled in to a nicer budget hotel with pot noodles and wine for a much needed rest. The drives are great, and the scenery stunning, but it was nice to park the car for a little while and see things on foot again.

    ... celebrated by going to yet another hot spring just outside of Turangi. We paid for a private room for 20 minutes in the hottest water yet and then went swimming in a large heated pool. And of course we met lots more friendly locals including some who had been to Turkey and just happened to be talking about swimming above Roman Ruins in a hot pool. We just did that at Pamukkale and struck up a conversation. And when ...

    ... staying and we didn't have a car. After speaking to the information centre we were informed that our options were a $500 water taxi or a $200 land taxi... neither of which sounded attractive. With a little wink the guide also suggested (off the record) that sticking out our thumbs might be the best way to go. We woke up bright and early and put on some clean hiking clothes and our most "we're unlikely to murder you if ...
