On the way to Taupo we saw some pretty amazing scenery. Who knew that …

Geo-thermal Explorers!

A travel blog entry by danielandmelora


New Zealand is also know as the 'Shaky Isles' due to its position along the Pacific 'Ring of Fire' and the ensuing earthquakes and volcanoes that come as the Pacific plate rubs up against the Indo-Australian plate.

Like what was increasingly becoming most of New Zealand, they featured in one of the Lord of the Ring movies, specifically making up parts of the “path of the dead” in the return of the king.

    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!
