Travel theme: Signs

12 Aug

The “Tongariro Crossing” is one of the more famous and hardest day walks in NZ.
It’s the most commonly walked part of a largest Trek named the “Tongariro Northern Circuit”, which takes about 3-4 days.

I did the whole circuit and it was breathtaking (literally, it’s quite steep at some points). After 3 days, and the beautiful lakes, all of a sudden, the scenery changed and was a bit boring for me, so when I saw this sign at the parking lot (which meant that it was over) –  I was a tad relieved.

Oh DOC signs… I miss you so much.

    Some of the names of places in NZ are awesome. The walk sounds lovely.

    Sounds like a wonderful hike, but I got a good giggle out of your parking lot sign indicating you’d made it to the end, nice one 🙂

    And now it is very exciting that it has erupted.
