Black Water Rafting

The most important part about being a video blogger is capturing footage. Footage of the activities being performed, the trip, the transportation, whatever it is we are currently doing at the time. So, what does a video blogger do when they cannot film? Well,  that is exactly what happened on our trip through the Waitomo Caves. Fortunately that is where text and this blog comes in handy.

Now this was my second time through the Waitomo Caves, so this time I chose to do Black Water Rafting over the Haggas Honkin’ Holes of last time. The major difference between the two being that this trip was a black water rafting trip consisting of floating on inner tubes through glow worm caves in the dark; where as the other was abseiling/repelling down waterfalls throughout the caves. Both were amazing trips, however, I personally preferred the Haggas Honkin’ Holes trip, but that’s probably because of my love for climbing.

My favorite part of the Black Water Rafting trip was when our entire group linked up all our individual tubes into one long line, laid back in the dark and admired the glow worms on the ceiling.

Yay for awesome fun adventures!

Next day we visited the Agrodome to see a world renown sheep show! The one thing I learned from this show was the incredible variety of sheep in the world. Crazy! Well, till tomorrow!
