    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.

This hotel has a homemade cave like grotto (hottub), and Finnish sauna. They also have an outdoor pool and small gym. Being right on the lake is lovely. You can lie in bed and see the water.

    After the initial fright of falling out of a perfectly good airplane, you realize you are doing somersaults in the air as you tumble freely in the cold air, and begin to accelerate rapidly toward the ground. It is an exhilarating feeling, and very freeing, as you can flip over ...

    ... of bad water. If something is labelled 'Danger' in NZ you know it's bad as they generally don't go in for warning signs at the slightest risk like we do. We left thankful that our gas had run out so we had not consumed much of the bad water at all. On finding a garage with a tap we spent ages in the rain holding a push tap down allowing a small trickle to roll into the van before spotting a normal tap that filled the tank up in no time at all and yes we checked first, it was safe to ...

    ... mud pools that were bubbling away. The boardwalk meandered it's way around all the craters and then a path took us up a hill so we could view this amazing place from above. After this and with my glasses all nicely steam cleaned we headed the short distance to the camp site in Taupo. On the way we stopped at Taupo Bungy so I could see the place where I did a bungy jump 20 years ago. We watched some mad person hurl themselves off ...
