The Big NZ Road Trip Photos - Pt 1 - Taupo


Liz has already written about the first section of our road trip.  Now, here is the first installment of photos.

After a nice stay with Jamie and Caroline we were off to Taupo where we stayed in  Reid's free (!) camp site:

One of the nice about a longer trip is the ability to take your time.  We spent a bunch of time watching some birds feed their young and build a nest.

Lunch time


and then of course the wake from these guys wiped out the nest.

Budget spa visit.  Free hot springs - the hot water flows out from the right of the photo and then mixes with the cooler water from the river.
