We met up with Sophie’s friend Nicola for the Tongariro crossing. This is one of New Zealand’s “Great Walks” and the setting for Mount Doom; it was breathtaking. We were very lucky to get a quiet day with blazing sunshine! The National Park is volcanically active and occasionally gets closed so we were pleased to have the green light.
