Kiwis und Glühwürmchen

Unser erster Halt war heute beim Kiwi-Haus in Otorohanga. Sehen konnten wir zwei lebende Kiwis (im künstlichen Dunkel). Fotografieren konnte man sie aber nicht. Danach ging es weiter noch Waitomo zu den Waitomo Caves. Eine beeindruckende Höhlenwelt aus Stalagmiten und -titen...

Durch Hoehlen

Und zum Abschluss des Nordtrips machten wir "Blackwater Rafting", unterirdisch. Gluecklicherweise waren wir nur zu zweit in unserer Gruppe. Zwei Guides begleiteten uns und konnten uns 5 Stunden wesentlich mehr zeigen als Normal moeglich waere. Gluehwuermchen schafften es leider nicht die kalten...

Rap, Raft'n, Rock

Waitomo

Dec. 16th, 2009 WAITOMO CAVES (40km, 216km total) – Somehow Shad and I have managed to lose each other. Our ride today wasn't long, but the hills outside of Pirongia were massive. He took the lead and kept it. A few of the hills were just too much for me and once I was forced to walk. We hit...

Days 7-9

So Friday and Saturday we went black water rafting...it was so fun, but the water was freezing. We woke up Friday morning and headed down to sky city bus stop, where a charter bus took us to Waitomo and dropped us off in front of our hostel. We went to the black water rafting company and they...

North Island Day 5: Black Water Rafting

The first thing I thought this morning when I woke up in the back of my car was, "Fuck! I'm never drinking and making bets ever again!" My second thought was, "Fuck it's gonna be cold in the water in them caves today!" We dragged ourselves out of bed and arrived at the Legendary Black Water...

North Island Day 4: The Bet

The trouble with free campsites is that sometimes they attract people who want to stay up all night and make noise which is fine unless me and my mates aren't the ones making the noise. Last night it was a group of Kiwi kids who, at one point at about 1am, drove a car through the busy site...

Going Underground

June 9 We diverted off the path to Jens house to go to Wiatomo Caves. Here James went black water rafting, this involved James putting on a wetsuit and picking out the right size inner tube to fit around his bum. The group then went off into a little hole in the ground. The group followed an...

Glow Worms Galore

Another whirlwind of a journey and we found ourselves in Waitomo - a part of the country famous for its cave sites and glow-worms grottos. When we arrived here, it reminded us a lot of Milford Sounds, in the sense that there really is nothing here apart from the land around you and unless you...
