    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!

    ... 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 ...

    ... I put him down for the 15,000 ft skydive and not the 12,000ft. There is no point doing 12,000 when you can do 15,000. Colm would thank me after he had done the skydive, so I would just have to put up with his panicky poo mode until then! In fairness to me, he knew it was going to happen in New Zealand at some point, that point was just going to be in the next day or two in Taupo. Oh well as he said, he couldn't back down now.

    On the way, we took a ...

    Anyway, Huka Falls, it was beautiful. Lake Taupo feeds into the Waikato River, which then runs through the Falls. There are 8 hydroelectric power dams on the river which create 25% of New Zealand's power! The first part of the walk was through town, where I passed the Taupo Bungee jumping spot and watched a couple people jump. Then went on to the little park area where the path goes past a hot spring and then on down ...

    ... of you who saw my photos from the Big Banana in Coffs Harbour, I had THAT kind of scale in my head. A humungous L&P bottle! Totally worth a two hour detour for if you ask me.

    We arrived in Paeroa around lunch time after an entire morning in a baking hot car. Neither of us were in the finest fettle and I just wanted to get out the car, stretch my legs and have a nice sit down lunch. Where else, thought I would be better than the L&P Café itself? Mattijs however, ...

    With no clue when the bus was leaving, Tuesday started with utter confusion but Ma finally turned up at 9.30am and everyone piled on the bus. It was a sad morning as we lost two of our North American friends; Caymon and Ian. I will be left with fond (and hilarious) moments of both. Caymon, amongst other things, for his day 1 beach stacking trying to retrieve a rugby ball and for Ian's pre-sky dive paranoia about getting sleep and room hopping round the ...
