I can't actually remember the real name for this mountain - I will look it up later
Well sorry for the delay folks, I spent the rainy days in Taupo catching up on the online diary thing then I have been really busy either touring or doing activities. Not much to report from Taupo - it was just a rainy wet town and for a wee while I was worried I might be stranded there! I did go to the cinema and watch Shrek 2 - it was cool and Over the next few days the little group I have been mucking around with from the Kiwi bus have been repeating some of the lines and taking the mick out of people of the bus who are now nicknamed donkey!! (they won't shut up!!) I have also been called donkey at times esp. when I have been drinking the old 'Mountain Dew' a soft drink which is loaded with caffine!! Yipeeee.................... Upon leaving Taupo was when I started to realise why it is a popular destination for tourists. While I was there all my activities were cancelled because of the weather but the day I left it started to clear up - and there were magnificent views across the lake to Mt Doom!!! (Lord of the Rings reference there).
Thats me home now from my whirl-wind tour of Dubai, NZ, OZ and Singapore. Where to next - and I am being serious!!! Perhaps I should spend October holidays catching up with friends and getting to see more of my own country.
Anyhow, check back here to hear all the gory details.
