Graffiato: Taupō’s Hidden Treasures

Taupō Street Art Festival brings together some of the world’s best street artists to the town at New Zealand’s largest lake. The town’s laneways are full of vibrant hidden treasures that only wait to be discovered. So, I grabbed a coffee and went on a little treasure hunt!

Rangitoto Island – Auckland’s Youngest Volcano

50 volcanoes. That is how many volcanoes shape the Auckland area. So, basically, every hill, lake, and basin of the city was shaped or is an actual volcano. And they aren’t dead – just fast asleep (I hope). Rangitoto is the youngest of this big explosive family – and I got to climb its summit. 

There and back again!

There is nothing like looking, if you want to find something. You certainly usually find something, if you look, but it is not always quite the something you were after.
