This morning we drove out to mount Ngauruhoe… AKA mount doom! It’s about an hour drive along the coast of Lake Taupo, and a must-see if you’re a die hard Lord of the Rings fan and happen to be in the area! The first of which I am not, but seeing as it’s *technically* still Owens birthday, I didn’t mind driving down to check it out. We had lunch en route back at Five Mile Bay and then headed back to the hostel.

In the afternoon we went back to the thermal pools again as it was a pretty cloudy and chilly day so was perfect to warm up there!

We were both feeling too lazy to cook dinner this evening so we headed to Taupo’s world famous McDonalds instead! It was voted worlds coolest McDonalds out of over 35,000 restaurants. Treated myself to a Chicken Big Mac meal as you’ve gotta try something you can’t get in the UK after all!

Managed to get a picture without dropping my phone in 😅
