I loved Taupo, really lovely place surrounded by amazing scenery. Loads of stuff to do like throw yourself out of a plane, throw yourself off a cliff or various things in between.
Sky diving was absolutely amazing, never experienced anything like that before and to do it with some very cool friends, that I had met in Oz, made it even more amazing. :0)
The sensation of flying as you freefall from 12,000 feet for 45 seconds was unbelievable, although the initial feeling of jumping out of a perfectly good plane is not that pleasant. - I so want to do it again ;0)
Talking of things not so pleasant, I also had that feeling while throwing myself off a ledge while hurtling towards a river 45 meters below while being attached by a bungee cord!! - Great fun but it takes a while to pluck up the courage to actually jump off :0|
