New Zealand / 28.04.2015

(Or that time we went on a Hobbit-like adventure and ended up with glowing maggot shit on our heads)

“The Road goes ever on and on

Down from the door where it began.

Now far ahead the Road has gone,

And I must follow, if I can,

Pursuing it with eager feet,

Until it joins some larger way

Where many paths and errands meet.

And whither then? I cannot say”

J.R.R Tolkien

(Or that time we walked in Frodo’s hairy feet)

Frodo is reading. He sits on the grass under a tall tree’s shade on a peaceful meadow, and a deep voice sings in the distance. He knows who the voice belongs to and with a mischievous grin, springs to his hairy feet. He runs down the hills, the singing voice calling him, while birds chirp and butterflies follow his path. He comes to the edge of the hill and stops Gandalf’s carriage. The wizard welcomes him in his arms. Together, pulled by an elegant horse, they enter The Shire
New Zealand, Rafting / 14.04.2015

(Or that time we rafted the highest commercially rafted waterfall in the world.)

You know us. When we heard that you can raft the highest commercially rafted waterfall in the world, they couldn’t keep us away. We even changed our perfectly crafted itinerary so we could do this. So, you can imagine just how excited we were when we arrived at Kaituna Cascades for our adventure day out.

(Or jumping from a 47m tower and peeking into the Devil’s Bath)

Taupo Bungy

The road is deserted. You’ve been on the move for more than 5 hours. You’re hungry, and your legs are starting to complain. Suddenly, you see the outline of a tower over the river,  just like an oasis. You feel the pull as it draws you near. Then, you see the sign: Taupo Bungy- 47m high, and no turning back.
