Lake Taupo, New Zealand

Lake Taupo, the largest one in New Zealand (a bit smaller than Lake Tahoe though), is also a volcano, so there are many hot water springs like the one we went to in Spa Park. From there, it’s a short hike along Waikato River, which is also the longest in New Zealand, to the majestic and bright blue Huka Falls. We also watched a couple of people do bungee jumping at the lake, but I didn’t have the courage to do it, especially after they all said they felt they were going to die. To end the day, I took a long walk around the lake and watched the sunset while drinking some wine.
