Day 59 & 60 – Taupo, New Zealand

Taupo introduced us to Pack n Save where you can save $1 in spring onions but bags are 10 cents. Oh dear. After mincing around the town and sampling the local meat pies George decided to try his hand at the hole in one challenge with the possibility of winning $10,000 with a 110 yard drive. As I suck at golf I decided to opt out. Although he didn’t win he made a decent mincers effort and hit the platform a couple of times. The night was finished with the standard meal, Oranjeboooooom and a bit of Thai research.

The following day was a little more productive. Hiring bikes with terrible gears from the hostel we took a bike track to Huka Falls, stopping off at some hot pools on the way, finishing the night in classic vintage tradition.
