If only you could raft down here..........
Mon 14th Jan:
Off for some more pain this morning, in the form of waxing! It was a bit of a walk so G leant me his scooter, how cool was that! I didn't want to come back but I was back on Stray at 1230. Sad to leave this hostel, met some cool people here.
Bus arrived at 1300 then onto Taupo, teh worlds largest crater lake, via Huka Falls. Taupo is also THE place to skydive and as Nigel very kindly gave it too me as a gift I had no choice (think that was the point!)
So a quick check in at the hostel then onto Taupo Skydive....................
What an amazing buzz, I don't think anything will ever compare to that feeling! Throwing myself out of a perfectly good plane at 15,000 feet with a stranger strapped to my back, why would you do it? I still can't answer that one really, but if you ever get the chance, it's just unreal! (family skydive perhaps?!)
Apologies to anyone I spoke to after the jump, but this was serious adrenalin junkie stuff!!
