Im still on the north island in the picturesque city of taupo. Arrived yesterday. Yesterday we watched lady knox geyser erupt at exactly 1015 the time it erupts everyday. Taupo close to geothermal plateau. We hiked a park 3km, full of steaming craters and lakes, steaming creeks, surrounded by forest. The lakes were green yellow and orange. Had to stick to pathways otherwise be incinerated.
went for a swim in lake taupo which is a lake the size of singapore. Huge! Surrounded by volcanic mtns. Also in view is mount doom (lotr). Cool eh!
Last night bunch of us went to irish pub. A new irish friend lives in sydney and we will meet up when i get there. Glad for that.
Going to walk about town today. Had to buy allergy med getting it bad here. Turning filinegro as hole in the ozone means uv rays especially strong. My face is slightly red. Slappin on the sun screen. I seem to be always hungry! Might come home with a few extra poundage but hoping all this hiking will get me lookin fit ;-)
Hope everyone is well. Wish you were here.
Mom don't worry about me im totally safe here unless i fall into a geothermal mud pool or something.
Marcus you were right about the farms! All i see in between cities is farmland. Sheeps and cows, corn fields. Crop circles and aliens.
M night shalamalamala, miss you guys so bloody much. Any new songs unlocked?? Haha. I am surrounded by europeans mainly from uk. learning their lingo. Will have more words to add to our english accent repertoire. Knackered for example means tired. How was chrisals birthday?
