NZ's Great Walk: The Tongariro Alpine Crossing

One day on Facebook...

A.S: I think I'm going to just skip doing the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. Hiking on stony tracks is not something for my feet. 

Immediately, friends responded...

Friend A: You must be kidding me. That's the best tramp I've ever done in NZ. You just have to do it. I'm sure you won't regret it.

A.S: Really?? Aren't there much nicer ones in the South Island, especially those with glaciers and snowy peaks.

Friend A: Yes, there are but to me, Tongariro is still topping my list.

Friend B: Seriously, do it, A.S!! Come on, it's the greatest walk in NZ. It's just breathtaking! It's not difficult, don't worry!

A.S: Yeah, I'd love to but it's too stony, I don't think I have the best footwear for it.  My leg hurts and I'm having blisters too on my toes. The weather's not too good. It's been rainy. Don't you think that it's a waste to hike up there and see nothing?

But in the end, she was glad that she made it! Yay, yay, yay!!! Sure enough, according to the weather forecast from I-site, Monday was a good day for the hike and yes, she found herself returning to bright sunny weather after the  4 days spent in Napier.
