North to Mount Doom

A travel blog entry by toddlerontour


... headed to the geothermal pools for a morning dip. There were two large green pools 38 and 40 degrees temperature, a couple of make-you-feel-like-a-lobster jacuzzis and one chlorinated and apparently unheated pool (which we steered well clear of). It wasn't as Chloe friendly as an ordinary swimming pool particularly as we, being the neurotic medics that we are, were taking the "don't submerge your head as you might get amoebic meningitis" rule very ...

Land of Lord of the Rings

... She also told us how her sister chocked on a potato peel...

Fortunately a passing German couple helped me and the man gave me a bit of a massage (all the best stories involve a strange German man massaging you.) This meant, however, that I had to take a long break to get over my cramp and then I was a pathetic hobbling wreck for the rest of the walk. My slower pace meant I was far too late for my bus ...

A Walk in the (National) Park

A travel blog entry by cheaperthancall


... this had hundreds of steep steps, each time you thought you had finished it you turned a corner and saw more going into the distance. After about 1 hour of stairs though you were at the base of Mount Doom and just beside a crater (creatively called the south crater), the result of a previous eruption. It just looked like wasteland, all bare for big distances. The next crater (Red - again creative!) was even more impressive, this I saw from ...
