Meet you in the park by the swings

A travel blog entry by philandmups


... of us so we got to recreate that traditional British holiday of camping with the kids. The only difference this time is the kids also got to drink lots of wine and it didn't rain all the time like it does camping in Wales, or the Lake District, or Dartmoor, or....... The Lake Taupo area is famed for two things; the Tongariro Crossing - generally classed as the best one day walk in New Zealand - and trout fishing. Being the adventurous types that we are, ...

Mount Doom Didn't Want to Come Out and Play....

A travel blog entry by lornathomas

... hostel, managed to get a few bells on the kiddie wall and most of the way up on some of the others before getting a bit freaked out! After a shower the weather had perked up a bit and we got some awsome views of mount doom, which I was grateful for!

Just as we started walking we noticed about 3 bus loads of people parking up about to start too so we thought we'd ...

"The sound of Te Awamutu had a truly sacred ring"

A travel blog entry by twoinatent


... summit of 1967m. The pass between the two was in a crater that felt like walking on the surface of the moon (see our profile picture). Before we ascended Mt.Tongario we looked back in the direction of where we had come and could see Mt.Taranaki in the distance. Walking towards the summit of Mt.Tongario involved crossing stretches of track that was volcanic sand, with sheer drops at one side, making it difficult (almost impossible) walking. We soon got used to slipping ...
