Flag of New Zealand  , North Island,
Tuesday, February 1, 2011

Finally, the landscape we all know from Lord of the Rings showed itself to me when I took on one of the toughest hikes I have ever done: The Tongariro Crossing. It's also supposed to be one of New Zealand's best one-day hikes. And yes, it does take a whole day to do it (I think we took 7.5 hours). I was very proud to finish this walk and without blisters, so yes dad the shoes are great and have finally been used!
I will let the pictures do the rest of the talking.
