Well we made it to Lake Taupo yesterday evening and were to late to book the Tourangi Crossing for today. Instead, we went to a lot of the natural thermal areas etc around Lake Taupo.
We went to the information center in the morning to see what Taupo had to offer. We tried signing up for the crossing tomorrow but it was conditional on what the weather will be and they won’t book anything until 2pm in the afternoon. So we decided to see what else it offered.
We did the, what a tremedous amount of water flowing through that little channel. Pretty impressive how that one river consititues 25% of all New Zealands energy.
