It was allegedly a fifteen minute climb but after the initial joke were Vicky's guy pretended to throw her out the plane (we hadn't left the ground) it felt like seconds before we were sat on knees being strapped in to their harnesses. Then with a flick of the rolling door Vicky was sat on the edge for ...

          ... and we have no plan of what we doing in the places we are going. And apparently that was for me to plan! Well I decided we will go to the Termal Wonderland which is across the road from where we had arrived at (Waiotapa Tavern – they wanted $20 to park up on the site and the book Wilderness had given us said it was free.)

          Thermal Wonderland entrance fee is $32.50 and last entry is at 3.45. We got in around 3pm and the smell ...
