Touring New Zealand's North Island by Campervan

It rained buckets overnight, and in the morning the camper was sitting in quite a little pond. Cathy wanted to take a run with one of the jetboat operators, but the only trip would have required us to commit to another night at Taupo so we just went to the Aratiatia Dam to watch the famous water release and then to beautiful Huka Falls (the country’s highest-volume waterfall - seen in this photo) before pointing the van in the direction of Waitomo and its Glowworm Caves.
