|We woke up to a sign saying "No Rafting Today, High River Levels". I was pretty pissed off because at that point I had clearly wasted about 3 days between Taupo and Wellington that I could have used to get back to Auckland and then get to Wellington.
With no rafting available it left many of us with nothing to do because horse trekking had to be signed up for the night before. I had no interest in horse trekking anyways. It would have been a pointless endeavour that would have cost me money and I still would have only got minimal satisfaction.
We left the lodge at about 1:00 and then headed to Wellington. I checked into my hostel and then bought a bus ticket to Auckland.
