Hare Mai, and welcome back once again. I'm glad you're here so I can share my thoughts and experiences with you.

Just before I was supposed to go to Waitomo I got sick and had to stay in Rotorua to get well. It took a couple of days, but that's what happens.

On the 8'th of december I went on the Kiwi bus to go to Waitomo, we had a good trip with a stop at the Mangapohue Natural Bridge and at a real Redwood forest, but was delayed by a nasty truck accident. It took a while to get the driver out, and he was allright more or less.

In Waitomo the hostel was a bit overbooked so they put us all in very nice chalets, sort of cabins. Nice upgrade!

Next day I was booked on my life's wildest adventure, The Ultimate Lost World with Waitomo Adventures Ltd. What a trip!!! It was my Christmas present from my fantastic mom & dad.

It would take days to tell you all the cool stuff I did, so here's the short version.

100 Meters abseil (rapelling) down a huge canyon, it took about 25 min to get down!

Climbing, swimming, and crawling through caverns and up real waterfalls, squizeing through narrow slits and walking through cathedral-size vaults.

I certainly broke some boundaries that day. What an amazing experience, it was the best and most extreme day of my life - ever!

See you soon!
