In the morning we were up by 7am! The weather had cleared so we made a dash across the country and got back to Taupo at around 11.30am. We were so glad we didn't go the night before. We had to go back to Taupo to hand our key in!
While in Taupo we also took the liberty of showers and emptying the waste and getting fresh water for the bus. Cool! We also bought a whole cooked chicken!
We kept saying "HELLO CHICKEN!" for the rest of the day! Well. We thought it was funny...
We then got on Highway 1 heading south.
