Awesome Weekend In Whakapapa

Hello hello

I know it has been a long time since I posted anything here, but here I am with an update. Internet is kind of expensive here in New Zealand so I spend a lot less time in front of my computer (I guess it’s a good thing to take a little break once in a while).

Anyways my friends Laurent, Wenx, Clemens and Lis were in Whakapapa for 3 days so we had plenty of fun. Basically they arrived Friday night so they got to snowboard Saturday. The weather wasn’t to bad, but Sunday, on my day off, it was just horrible so we didn’t enjoy the mountain as much. We just all went to the hot pools in Torangi. Monday, however, the sun was shining and the mountain was clear. Wenx and Lis were out of the game already. They weren’t snowboard so it was Clemens Laurent and me. Also my co-worker Alex joined in on the fun.

Laurent, Alex and I decided to hike up the mountain to the volcano’s crater which is a very nice little lake. Basically you take the far west T-Bar and hike up for about an hour and a half. Once you get on top you see this beautiful lake and as you can see the view is amazing. It was a bit icy so the ride down wasn’t very nice, but we still enjoyed the challenge.
Thank you Laurent from the camera and the pictures. Enjoy
