Hey guys, I’m back! We’re now at the beautiful town of Taupo on the vulcanic plateau. Since my last report I’ve wrestled the Pacific (weapon of choice: a surfboard; my chin is still blue), visited Hobbiton (without injuries, luckily), survived the sulphor clouds of Rotorua and enjoyed a lot of hot baths, the last one just a few hours ago in a very warm river at the end of a gravel road. I have also seen lots of fantastic colours and bubbling mud, all around here – wow. It’s been a lot of stuff and I’m running out of space on the data cards for my camera.. I’ll show you some more as soon as possible. (: I hope all of you are well and enjoy your time before Christmas. It’s just not the same down here; shops playing only christmas charols and lots of Santas everywhere.. and people run around in shirts and shorts. So strange.. ^^
edit: Ok, we’re having a problem with the photos here; they shouldn’t be in that order. I’ll fix that as soon as possible! ):
edit2: Found the problem, will take some time fixing that I don’t have right now.
It’s the lands around Matamata.
Champagne pool at Wai-o-tapu (Sacred Waters).
More to come! :) Did anyone have a look at Kit’s pictures btw? Some of them feature us! (:
