North Island 2007

In the cold 3rd week of June 2007 we undertook our second short trip to North Island. During those six very busy days we found ourselves exploring the caves, watching the erupting geyser, visiting the bird park and thermal area, the buried village and Auckland Zoo and Underwater World, watching Mt.Taranaki bathing in sunset rays, and listening to the Dalai Lama, whose visit to New Zealand actually made us to undertake this trip. Winter proved to be very good time for travelling up there - everything is still and quiet, there are vacansies everywhere, and the colors are beautiful with lot of yellow and red leaves still on trees.

Июнь 2007. В этот морозный зимний месяц мы совершили наше второе короткое путешествие на Северный остров, которое получилось насыщенным событиями. За 6 дней мы побывали в пещерах, в термальных зонах, видели гейзеры и вулканы, посетили зоопарк и аквариум в Окланде, а также два дня ходили на выступления и публичные учения Далай-Ламы, чей визит в Новую Зеландию и сподвигнул нас на зимнее путешествие. Зима оказалоась хорошим сезоном для поездки на север - везде мало народу, везде есть места, все туроператоры рады тебе как родному, а все еще осенние краски, особенно яркие в морозном воздухе, неузнаваемо меняют обычно зеленые пейзажи.
