It was 5th of september i remember that we had to get everything ready to go to mt ruapehu. Everybody was excited. It was 10am when we got everything ready to go. The food,snacks and drinks for the trip.
Then we were off to mt ruapehu. My mum drove all the way to huka falls, we stopped off there to see the amazing views and to have snacks. Then we carried on driving towards taupo. When we reached to taupo lake and we parked the van and went off for a walk. It was freezing in taupo. We could see the amazing view of mt ruapehu from lake taupo.
It was a 2 hour drive from taupo to mt ruapehu, and it was getting dark. Then we drove fast along lake taupo and at last we reached at tongariro national park. our lodge wasn’t far away from mt ruapehu it was only a 15 minute drive from our lodge. When we reached our lodge it was 6pm it was cold we started putting the luggage into the house. When we finished we had dinner and went to sleep.
In the morning when we woke up we started eating breakfast and got ready to got to mt ruapehu. We started to get in the van and we went off. When we reached at tongariro national park, We got off the van and started to play in the snow. Then we walked to the cafeteria, we went inside it and it was so warm and nice. we ordered hot chocolates and coffee. Me and my dad we started to ski from the top of the mountain. It was scary but when you know how to do it it’s really fun.
We started driving back to the lodge that we were staying at. We ate lunch and started to pack the luggage and load in the van. It was a 5 hour drive from mt ruapehu to our house. It was a really fun trip.
