    Our first week in New Zealand.

    ... visited a few more vineyards. We came across a beach and as soon as we pulled up Matty recognised it as one he'd been to with his mum and dad when they were here. We had a relaxed evening in the house, it was just so nice been in a homely environment. Living out of campers for weeks on end has it's advantages but it does make you miss the four walls and home comforts. We arrived back at Suttys on Monday morning and more or less set off straight away. Our plan was to ...

    ... check in, as I was the first to answer a question she asked. So that was cool! We stayed in a 6 bed room with Cassie, David, Thomas, and Adam. After checking in and putting our stuff down, we had a walk around TAUPO, bought some goon (ew) from the liquor shop, and some cordial and lemonade to make it in to a punch (in hope of eliminating the taste of goon!).

Tongariro National Park is quite frankly one of my favourite places in NZ and is home to not just one but THREE volcanoes, which are scarily active. Oh yes. This is where sh** gets real. Taupo is also located right on the shores of the country's largest and originally named Lake... Taupo. ...

    ... of photo shots. Our drive to Taupo a short one so coffee en route in the Lonely Planet recommended art gallery cafe seemed a good plan. Only problem was it was closed on a Monday! Can't quite get used to the fact even during the summer season places have reduced days opening and then when they do open they close as soon as the food is sold or certainly before the end of their opening hours! No business acumen but perhaps they have the right work life ...

    ... about being completely hidden in the water too and can only be seen by boat, swimming or kayaking. Olive have us some history about Lake Taupo before taking us to the rocks edge, where we got out to swim and cliff jump. The water was freezing but completely clear and blue. Then it was time to start the journey back. It's safe to say that Scott and I will not make great kayakers... But we were glad we did this tour. It was a great and active way ...
