Day 158 – 160 | Taupo & Wai-o-Tapu

The last few days we’ve been staying at a hotel with crappy internet, thus the slight delay in blog-posting. I have been showing my mum around Taupo. Showing her GNS, Huka Falls and we even went to Napier. As I took loads of pictures last time in Napier, I did not bother this time, however, it was a really nice atmosphere this time around. The Art Deco winter festival was on and a lot of people were dressed to the occasion. We tried to do some shopping in Napier as well, but as I’ve learnt by now, New Zealand is not a country known for its fashion and we did not find anything that was our ‘thing’. It was a good day with lovely weather. Today Bas, my mom and I went to Wai-o-Tapu, a geothermal beauty. Some of these pools, including Champagne Pool, are elaboratly researched by GNS, because even though the temperatures rise high, life thrives.
