We drove to Taupo. This is described in the guidebooks as – well, I can’t quote it as I’ve lost my guidebook, but I’m sure it was something along the lines of the fact that Taupo is stunningly beautiful with views of some Mountains or similar. Now I’m not sure what happened on the day we went, but that is not how I would describe it. It’s possible the weather had something to do with it and blocked any views of mountains. Don’t get me wrong – it was nice, and we saw a black swan which was cool, but we didn’t think it was stunning. We had planned to spend the night there, but we decided to move on instead….
And we were glad we did, as going north we stumbled upon Huka Falls. This was amazing. It is a waterfall / rapids and the power of the water was, well, amazing! I wouldn’t like to fall in there! The colour of the water was also surprising as it was an azure blue and just looked so clean. We spent some time just gazing at it 🙂
