Road trip to Coromandel and Taupo

2 hours on the train, 26 hours flight, switching from summer to winter and missing the first time my country's football team wins the Europe Cup... Now I begin to understand what we've done is more than just "moving to another country"!
Well, here I am, and our first trip here is a Road Trip to the Coromandel Peninsula together with Bruno (Swiss), Bernd (German) and Brendan (USA). And although it was winter, I spent my first birthday in NZ lying in the sun at Cathedral Cove. Not bad...(except for the sandflies)

Hot Pools in Taupo: Taupo is a centre of volcanic and geothermal activity and hot springs suitable for bathing are everywhere around the city.
