Vulkanfarben und ein See

Erkennt ihr, welches der blaue und welches der grüne See ist? Beide liegen direkt nebeneinander in der Nähe unseres (Schwefelgeruchfreien) Campingplatzes der letzten Nacht. Nach diesem kurzen Ausflug zum Aussichtspunkt sind wir noch Wai-o-Tapu gefahren, wo man durch die thermischen...

New Zealand fishing guides

This last season didn't seem to have as many days in it as they once did—almost as though we have been short changed. Surely it can't be because I'm getting a mite older! The 2011 fishing season just whistled by and we are now fair in the middle of the warmest winter ever and only 2 months to go...

The Volcanic Plateau

We set out from Auckland Monday morning and headed south in our rental car. Driving on the left side of the road was a bit harrowing at first, but after a couple high-stress hours of confusion and a close call or two, I got the handle of it. As we headed south the New Zealand countryside...

Another typical NZ summer's day

Surprise Surprise, woke up to grey skies but not too much rain, was still pretty cold though. Went “ing” for a bit then packed up and headed to Lake Taupo. Well after driving 50kms in the wrong direction (I of course was blamed as navigator), before finally turning around and going the right...

Skydiving - Lake Taupo

Dritter Tag: Nach endlich genuegend Schlaf im YHA Hostel buchten wir unseren Fallschirmsprung. Ich erinnere mich an ein komisches Gefuehl im Bauch als die Ja-Entscheidung fiel und das Kartenlesegeraet meine Kreditkarte mit ca. 250 Dollar belastete (trotzdem sehr guenstig). Bald wurden wir dann...

Cold fear at 15,000 feet.

No sooner had we dried off from the white water rafting, and we were on the way to Taupo. Apparantly Taupo is one of the sky diving capital of the world, due to the good weather etc. Tim had been mentioning sky diving before we even left London, but I had been trying to block this out of my...

Waking Up...

There aren't many better ways to wake yourself up than jumping 47 metres head first into the gorgeous Waikato River with only a piece of elastic tied round your ankles to slow you down. The Taupo bungy (you know, the one Andi bottled out of coz she's chicken) is New Zealand's highest water touch...

North Island Day 9: The Road To Taupo

As you travel down from Rotorua to Taupo you'll notice a sign for Wai-O-Tapu Thermal Wonderland which is home to, as well as a huge park full of geothermal activity, the Lady Knox Geyser which apparently erupts ay 10.15am every day so we duly rocked up like the good little tourists we were to...

Golf and parachutes

Taupo is a nice town, kind of like the Queenstown of the north island. Huge lake in the middle, and not quite as mountainous as Queenstown, but still pretty rugged terrain around. KP came here a few weeks ago and managed to get himself to the edge of a bungee platform but no further. However, he...

Ugh... we must be on Santa's naughty list!

Well... we've recently stumbled upon one of the things that we as travelers are warned about regularly... theft. Not to fret, we are going to manage just fine and after a few grunts and groans about what we lost, we both feel lucky that it wasn't worse... it could of been WAY worse. After a...
