National Park 31.10

The time had come. We left Blue duck station just as the sun rose over the green hills at 6am. We were heading to trek the Tongariro Crossing. I had just about every piece of clothing suited for training on me, except for a good pair of hiking boots. Them I intended to rent at […]

Whakahoro aka Blue Duck Station 29-30.10

After breakfast we said goodbye to the Maori family and headed towards Wakahoro, the Blue duck station, which is really off the beaten track with the driveway to the farm being 18km of a tiny gravel road. We did, however, start off with a dip in a hot spring first before viewing the amazing Haka […]

Lake Aniwhenua 28.10

After leaving Rotorua we headed towards Lake Aniwhenua, being invited to the village of Maori people.

We learned about Haka (traditional Maori dance), we wove our own braceletes out […]

Waitomo and Rotorua 27.10

The last three days I have been taking an open water certified diver course here in Fiji. 6 dives (40-50 min) in depth 12-20m. It has been the most amazing experience ever!

Yasawa Islands 11-12.10
