Sky diving in Taupo

February 27, 2009

We arrived in Taupo thursday evening and friday during the day we met up with Ola and his class mates to drive to the airport to do the sky diving. I wasn’t nervous at all until we had to watch a movie about the sky dive. After that I was starting to swet and shake. Worst part was when the 10 of us had to get on the plane that would take us 12.000 feet up in the air. During the 20 minnutes we were in the airplane I was starting to really panic. But it wasn’t much to do when you’re secured fasten to another person.  I was the third person to jump out from the plane and when I saw the 2 before me jump out and quickly dissapere in heaven, I was really scared. My instructor was really calm and happy and explained over and over again that everything was going to be fun. Fun, ehh? So I jumped out, and in a half second the plane was gone and we were falling through the air. The actual fall took about 40 seconds and then we we’re flying around for a while till we finally landed.






Active volcanos and Thermal lakes

It was smoke everywhere in Waipu where we went to have a look at the active volcanos and bubbling, smoking lakes. It was amazing to see…






Bungy Jump

I can’t believe I did this, but I did. It’s insane. I have been falling through the air today. I was scared but it all went so fast I didn’t have time to panic.


Wild Life Park

February 25, 2009

We went to the Wild Life Park to have a look at the lion feeding. They were really hungry and you could tell who was the boss among them. We had a look around the rest of the park while were there.










I’m flyyying

February 25, 2009

By lying over a wind tunnel we could actually float in the air. It wasn’t as easy as it looked and you really had to concentrate on your balance. But it was fun, fun, fun to be weightless for a while.


Driving mini-cars

We took us up to the top of the hill and then went down with mini-cars. Really, really fun : )




Polynesian Spa in Rotorua

February 25, 2009

After driving Ola back to Auckland, we had a few hours sleep in the city before hitting the road again. Todays destination was Rotorua. This town really smells like shit because of the big, white sulfur lake in the middle of the city. First thing we did after checking in was heading to the Polynesian Spa, which is supposed to be one of the top ten Spa’s in the world. We got a private pool with hot thermal water direct from the stinky lake. So we kind of smelled like toilet after taking this bath. But the skin was softer than soft.


Day-trip to Bay of Islands

February 25, 2009

Me, Johan and Ola drove to Bay of Islands early in the morning the second day in NZ. It took us about 3 hours but it was really worth it. On the way there we saw beautiful green hills and nature.



Super fast ” Mac Attack” speed-boat tour where we viewed 120 islands




Sky Tower

February 22, 2009

From the top of the sky-tower, we had a really good view of the northern island. NZ is really beautiful. When we got tired from looking at the view we went down to the 54th floor and had drinks and cheese!


Meeting up with Ola

February 22, 2009

After having a quick look around town, which was very small by the way, we meet up with my old flat-mate Ola and spent the rest of the afternoon in the sun : )
