Northland Road Trip Day 1

Before we started off, we decided we’d take timelapse pics of our entire journey.  We used our iPads, in a window mount at the front of the van.  It took a picture every 3 seconds and we processed these pics into a video with 5 photos per second. It means that you can relive our trip in a fraction of the time that it took to drive!  

We stopped the video each time we stopped (sometimes I forgot!) and they’re broken down into days – and then by locations.  Here’s the set for day 1.

Tararua Forest Park

Today we went to the Taraua Forest Park, it’s a short drive to Shannon – where the forest park begins and it was a long 2 hour(ish) drive up to the second dam, via very windy roads.  But it was totally worth it.

Dam number 2 is the best place on the planet that I have ever had lunch.  We had a compeltely awesome afternoon and only left because the evening was closing in.  We walked both dams and went for a bush walk after lunch.  

We walked up the river and back down in the bush.  It was really slippy.  I fell over twice, once on the rocks and once in the bush.  Hurt myself more on the rocks, caught my ankle on a really pointy rock.

I have no idea how we’re going to come even close to bettering this experience, but we’re going to have a damn good go!!
