The two volcanoes we pass through are Mt Tongariro and Mt Ngauruhoe (aka Mt Doom), one …

While staying in Taupo the weather was still too much on the gloomy side for us to enjoy the city itself. Luckily, however, there were several destinations within reach that intrigued us, so we made Taupo our home base for a few days and went driving.

Our first day-trip was to the Hawke's Bay region and specifically to see Te Mata Peak. …

A wander through Waimangu...

Our previous time in New Zealand we stopped at a thermal park and really enjoyed it. Wai-O-Tapu had SO many interesting sights and weird surroundings, which really lend themselves to our style of photography, so returning to it was rather tempting. However, we feared that returning to the exact same park would result in us taking similar pictures …

Somewhat smelly, rather steamy, but very pretty...

We left Rotorua rather early in the morning to get to Wai-O-Tapu Thermal Wonderland on time. Every day at 10.15 the Lady Knox Geyser is (forced to) erupt by a park employee who chucks in a soap-like substance that aggitates the geyser enough for it to do its thing. It is quite an impressive spectacle to witness so close up and the knowledge that it …

    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.
