New Zealand // Live music at 2 Mile Bay


A few weeks ago we took a little walk round to 2 Mile Bay to watch their Sunday Live Session. 
It was such a lovely evening just hanging out with friends, listening to good music, eating great pizza and sitting out on the decks watching the sun set. 
I really love living by the Lake.
I had forgotten how much I love being around and in water.
I never get the chance to go swimming at home, and to be swimming pretty much every day just makes my soul happy.

New Zealand // Tawhai Falls: Gollums Pool

Okay. Im completely giving up on doing this day by day because a) I suck at daily blogging, b) we don't always do 'interesting' things everyday, c) I'm getting too mixed up with my days, d) Aint no one got time for that shit! So here we go with just doing posts by event, hopefully I can keep on top of it a bit more!

We took a little road trip the other day to Tawhai Falls in the Tongariro National Park. Its about 1 hour drive out of Taupo. The drive was beautiful, the trees here are huge and driving through the mountains and cliffs near the lake are awesome (and terrifying!) to drive on. When we got to waterfall some one said it was the place where they filmed the scene in Two Towers where Gollum catches the fish and sings his little rhyme. It was awesome! We have officially visited our first LoTR filming location. Unfortunately we had just got new tattoos and they were still healing, so we couldn't swim, but some of the other guys did and it looked amazing! The water was freezing but I would of given anything to go in and swim under the waterfall. We will definitely be back to have a swim and hopefully it will be a little bit warmer because the sun decided to go in as we got there and it was a little chilly sat on the rocks! It was such an awesome day, probably one of the best days so far, just for random fun adventures.

New Zealand // Day 14

Day 14 was pretty awesome because it was Hollies birthday! I made her and some friends blueberry pancakes for breakfast, which were awesome! In the day we did another river float (yes we do a lot of them, they're just so much fun!) It was so hot an sunny it was amazing. The river was really low too so the water was even more clear. There was a hole in my boat but we managed to get round without it completely deflating. It was such an awesome day, and we topped it off with a lovely meal at The Lakehouse and then out for drinks in the evening. A pretty awesome day in my books.
