  • 在Far North的海灘其實都有一股寂靜的美,這種自然景觀也許和紐西蘭其他的海灣比起來並沒有很大的差異,但是,人少的地方,總是讓人有一種輕鬆的遺世獨立的感覺,自然而然比其他都是觀光客的地點棒了許多。 
  • From the (rather ugly) town of Taupo along the "5 miles Bay", on a path very well landscaped, lakeside. Ruapehu and Tongariro mountains in focus through greenery, dotted with houses of architect most beautiful than the other. A well relaxing walk.

  • The views coming into Taupo were just beautiful. The lake was smooth and peaceful looking. Miles and miles of it.
