    ... rock-climbing. At times you had to pull yourself up on ropes provided so you didn't slip off the cliff. The higher we climbed, the windier and colder it was. I honestly thought I was a goner. Every step you took, rocks beneath your foot would fall causing you to slip. It took me a reasonable amount of time to reach the top of the difficult ascent. I kept thinking of my Gramps' saying, 'Can do, will do'. The views from the top were amazing - we could see the ...

    ... be cold when we arrived. So, armed with the rather fetching attire of swimming shorts and a fleece, we headed to some free natural springs not having any idea what to expect. As we reached the main area, it was loaded with 10 or so grinning 'super cools' (remember?) so we continued a small accent to the spot above them where we found small intimate pool all to ourselves. I did have a slight wicked side that wanted to let a banana through the hot springs so ...

    ... the slides most of the morning while mum read her book and dad did the washing. Sybilla made a friend called Amber and got her details, then it was just about time to go. We went into town walked around a bit before having lunch then went to the park were the girls had lots of fun and I saw a giant chess board that I wanted to play on but it was occupied. We went back to the caravan park after visiting Taupo and slid down slides a bit more before ...

    ... walk and at time the extremely steep hikes up the mountain was so tough but the view once you was up the top was totally worth it. The coming down part was the hardest as it was all soft rock, so you was near enough sliding down part of it. It was a bit scary as you could easily stumble and fall and then you would be seriously screwed, as you could tumble off the volcano.

    Our journey from Wanganui to Taupo took about 3 hours but was very scenic. Lake Taupo Top 10 site is the biggest site we have been to. We were put on pitch 144. It is a well kept site, but we tend to prefer smaller sites. They are in the middle of putting in a new swimming pool. Having set up camp, fed & watered ourselves we walked the 2.5 km into Taupo and booked a boat to go to the Huka Falls tomorrow ...
