Adventure!

I had a wonderful adventure on Thursday.

I have a friend who lives on a small holding.

It is about 30 minutes drive from where I live.

It was much like the song:

Old McDonald had a farm

and on the farm there were some –

For Friday’s It’s Write Easy I used the word

TRAVEL

Here is what I said :

TRAVEL

Wikipedia says:

Travel is the movement of people between relatively distant geographical locations, and can involve travel by foot,bicycleautomobiletrainboatairplane, or other means, with or without luggage, and can be one way or round trip.[1][2]Travel can also include relatively short stays between successive movements.

 

My International student  had to attend some activities during the holidays. The college gave her a list of activities and she had to go to at least 5 of them.

Going to these activities took some travelling from Upper Hutt to Wellington.

The first week between the two long week-ends the weather did not play along for travelling and going outside. The second week  was much better.

We used different ways to travel:

  1. Firstly we traveled by car to Petone to see what the sea was like! Kiki did not know that the sea was so near to us. We also saw the Inter Islander sailing to the harbor.
  2. The second way of travelling was by train.

Thursday morning we first travelled by car to the station where I parked it for the day. We took the train from Upper Hutt to Wellington.

  1. The third way of travelling was on foot. We walked from the station to the City Gallery in the Civic Square. Next was the Museum of Wellington City and sea. This museum was worth visiting but you need a whole morning to explore it.
  2. The forth way of travelling was by cable car. We first had to use our feet again to get to the cable car station. We travelled in the cable car up the hill to the Botanical gardens and down again.
  3. The last was going back home. First walk to the station, travel by train, then by car and home again.

It was worth using different ways of travelling.

We enjoyed travelling from Upper Hutt to Wellington using different ways.

We were ON THE MOVE the whole day!

Lake Taupo is a lake situated in the North Island of New Zealand. With a surface area of 616 square kilometres (238 sq mi), it is the largest lake by surface area in New Zealand, and the second largest freshwater lake by surface area in geopolitical Oceania after Lake Murray (Papua New Guinea).

Lake Taupo has a perimeter of approximately 193 kilometres, a deepest point of 186 metres. It is drained by theWaikato River (New Zealand’s longest river), while its main tributaries are the Waitahanui River, the Tongariro River, and the Tauranga Taupo River. It is a noted trout fishery with stocks of introduced brown trout and rainbow trout.

From above: A photo a week challenge

The Waikato River, New Zealand’s longest river, moves gracefully north from Lake Taupo between banks 100 metres apart. Just before the Huka Falls it enters a shallow ravine of hard volcanic rock. The effect is nature’s large-scale equivalent of a fire hose feeding into a very fine nozzle.

Huka Falls

At Huka Falls you can witness the phenomenon of natural hydro power – more than 220, 000 litres of water per second.

Story telling using images.

I used three images(photos) showing how lucky we are to get a little bit of rain. Rain or water usually creates a soft and shimmering picture

It was a wonderful cool morning.

It drizzled the whole morning ,

not enough for the dry plants but still welcome relieve from the heat.

juxtaposition is “the act of placing things side by side, especially for the purpose of comparison or contrast” — as in this shot.
