Amazing place when you've not experienced a double room with a telly since 27th December. Great king-size beds, basic TV channels but they have a lounge with Sky. Got to watch the Man Utd game in the morning. Huge kitchen, everything you need, nice balcony to eat over looking the lake. Countdown and Pack N Save round the corner. Strange though, this place was dead when we stopped there. Only 5 or 6 other guest, great for us, we had free run of the place, not so good if you want a party.

... a rest was necessary. In addition, he intelligently deduced that if he started swimming from where he ended, he would wind up on the other side, but at the base of high cliffs with no way to get out of the river. So…he walked upriver on the steep bank on the other side, until he was slightly upriver from us, then dove in and headed back. He did a great job and made it across, and only about 100 yards downriver from us, so was able to walk back to meet ...
... adventure activities I've done in my life. (After 5 hours of physical effort in cold water, the hot soup and bagel afterwards were also very welcome).
We made our way to Turangi, our base to do the Transalpine Crossing in Tongariro national park. Alledgedly one of the best one day tramps (=hikes) in NZ. We started in decent weather conditions and got to see some impressive landscapes. It was also here that some of the Mordor and Mt ...
