Next stop was National Park. The weather wasn’t the best but we made the best of what we had. Dad did some more fishing and even though we were advised not to attempt the Tongariro Crossing, mom and I still did. We knew we wouldn’t be able to do it all but our goal was Soda Springs and we did make it there and back :) For those who don’t know, Tongariro Crossing is also the home of Mordor and Mt Doom from Lord of the Rings. The clouds were really really low, they went all the way down to well the road. It was also very windy and by the time we got to Soda Springs the weather had gotten worse and by the time we got back to the car park we were soaked, in spite of “waterproof” clothes and Gore Tex shoes (“guaranteed to keep you dry” yeah right!). It was still worth it though and we still did see a lot.


After we met up with Andrew we went for a hot chocolate and it was soo nice. Where dad was fishing it had been 18 degrees and where mom and I had been it was 9.

Ni hade ju bättre väder än vad vi hade på Tongariro iaf :) Minusgrader, snö och storm.

Hoppas ni har det trevligt.
