Over the weekend my darling Hubby and I did the Tongariro Crossing.
It was amazing, breathtaking (in more ways then one), hard work and STUNNING!
We had the most perfect day for it.
I had never done it before and always wanted to.
Hubby has done it once before but it was snowing and well he could hardly see his hand in front of his face for half of it!
If you don’t know Tongariro is the smallest of the three volcano’s in the middle of the North Island of NZ.
The biggest is Ruapehu, where you will find the ski fields in winter.
The middle on (but the steepest) Is Ngauruhoe, you can climb this too off the Tongariro track but you would have to be a special kind of crazy to attempt that!
Here are some pictures from our trip!
We did this on Sunday and completed it in 6hours and 45minutes.
On the Saturday we did a lovely little 15min walk down to Tawhai Falls:
Then on our trip home on Monday I made my Hubby stop at EVERY second hand shop we saw between National Park and Wellington!
Now hubby knows how crazy I can get looking for patterns, fabrics and other pretty bargains!
Here are some of my super good scores AND hubby even found cool old tools so not so bad after all!
Then I got home to find lots and lots of packages all just for me!
And that is all my exciting news for the moment!
