Share |Returning to NZ this time from the Philippines I had a stomach upset. This is common for me. I often get sick going from a hot to cold climate. No nausea or fever this time, so I thought it was because of food poisoning or an old nut bar in the bottom of my luggage. As it turns out, it was just travel. Should have been obvious to me..
Anyway, getting the bus back to Wanganui I caught these photos of Mt Ruepehu which I thought I'd share with you. There are 3 impressive volcanoes on the North Island. I'm almost an expert on these because I climbed them as a geology student at Macquarie University. This I think is Ruepehu, the other big ones are Tongariro (nearby), Mt Egmont (near New Plymouth) and Mt Tawawera. Mt Tawawera is like the kiddies favourite because you can run or 'ski' down to the crater floor. A lot of fun given that you cannot see where you're going because of the fog.
