More food and more hot pools
August 18, 2013 - Taupo, New Zealand
At the risk of turning this travel blog into a food blog, the highlights of Taupo centred around top food. The tongario crossing is a famous volcano walk which is classed as one of the top ten walks in the world. Unfortunately for us, it was deemed too dangerous over the weekend we were in town because of bad weather. Our skydive was cancelled too :( It chucked it down for the two days we spent in Taupo and there was nothing to do except eat, drink and be merry. After a great night out, we...

Lake Taupo
January 13, 2010 - Taupo, New Zealand
Was up again at about 5.45am to get the bus to Lake Taupo, the drive was around 12 hours but the sights were breathtaking. Looking out of the window you feel like you are looking at a postcard there are mountains and lakes everywhere, its just a shame that the rocking motion of the buses as they wind in and around the mountains makes you fall asleep for most of the day! I felt wide awake once arriving in Taupo so went out for a run around the lake. Didn't quite make it the whole way...

Hot Water Beach,Volcanic und die große Wanderung
November 13, 2009 - Taupo, New Zealand
    Ereignisreiche Tage liegen hinter mir und werden jetzt auch vor mir liegen. Aber von vorne: Pablo, ein Deutscher, den ich in Auckland kennengelernt habe, ist nach Coromandel gekommen: Zusammen sind wollten wir die Nordinsel bereisen. Erste Station war der Hot Water Beach. Wie der Name schon sagt, kommt dort bei Ebbe unterirdisch heißes Wasser an die Oberfläche. Man gräbt mit einem Spaten sein Loch und fertig ist der eigene Whirlpool. Klingt leichter als es ist, weil das Loch zu nahe...

New Zealand: North Island (on Stray bus)
October 20, 2009 - Taupo, New Zealand
After I got rid of the car I jumped on a Stray Tour bus around parts of the North Island I hadn't been to yet. We went to Hai Hei the first night on the coromandel pennisula and had a bbq in the rain (v kiwi not been put off by the weather ha) and also went sea kayaking along bit of the coast early in the morning which was good (kayaking along the the Cliffs at the end of Knockalla in the Swilly in Donegal is more impressive in my opinion) We also visited Hot water beach where you...

Lake Taupo-Tongariro Crossing
October 29, 2009 - Taupo, New Zealand
Am Mittwoch war das Wetter nun endlich so gut, dass wir auf unserer Wanderung, den Tongariro hinauf, aufbrechen konnten. Der Tag begann fuer uns schon recht frueh, da wir bereits um 6.20 in der Fruehe abgeholt wurden und mit einem Bus zu unserem Drop-off starting Point in 1150 m Hoehe gebracht wurden. Von hier aus konnte nun die 7-8 stuendige Wanderung beginnen. Schon im Bus wurden wir auf unseren Hoellenmarsch vorbereitet. Zum Einen liehen wir uns feste Wanderschuhe fuer die doch recht...
