ABOVE: to give overseas people an idea where we are, we are right slap-bang in the middle of the North Island! Lake Taupo.

ABOVE: It is beautiful here, but freaking FREEZING!

ABOVE: but... having your very own Thermal Pool to use is a bonus! So nice.

It's been nice here... but now it's time to get in the car and head to Palmerston North.

It's quite a drive even from here... but all going well we should get there by lunchtime.

WEIGH IN: well I weighed myself yesterday before we left... I was UP .100 grams.... so I have to be VERY good while we are away to make sure I have a loss next Friday! AND. I. WILL.
Just got to Palmerston's been a long day!
I feel dreadful! I have misplaced my mobile phone... do believe I have left it at home! I feel like my best freind has died! I don't know any of my friend's phone numbers ... they are all in me bloody phone.
Oh well.. we still have Stew's phone.
The trip went well.. dogs woke us up at 5.30am wanting to go out for a piddle... far out it was cold in Taupo at 5.30 in the morning! I was NOT impressed. Pfffffft.
All is good though.
End of Day... early again... as I have things to do, people to see... nite nite.


  1. It looks absolutely gorgeous there! I want to go....

  2. Beautiful picture!!

  3. You are covering some ground, but it looks very beautiful. Maybe you baked a little weight off in the thermal pool.

  4. I loved Lake Taupo when we visited. Very interesting little row of shops etc too. Lovely!

    Enjoy your trip! We stayed in a nice place in Palmerston North, too, and had dinner at an all-you-can eat seafood place on one of the main roads too. Very nice!


  5. bugger about your phone.hope you're having fun!!

  6. I'm so addicted to my phone. I'd freak if I forgot it!

  7. Don't worry Chris, it's freezing here in Auckland too today! And I'm from Dunedin (lower South Island for international readers - the land of frozen windscreens and frosty footpaths in winter).

  8. Awwww its not that cold here really IF I can walk around barefoot its not that cold... hope the trip to PN went well..... (Samuel soooooo wants a dog like Coco and teddy!!)

  9. That scenery is gorgeous! You are such a lucky duck to have this vacation. :)

  10. Such a wonderful place to be! The views are amazing.

  11. It looks beautiful Chris, but it is a shame that it is so cold.

  12. Hey, if I had a view like that to look out, I wouldn't mind the chill. Here, we have lots of cows. Lots and lots of cows.
