I have a job at Taste cafe in the town center. The cafe patio is across the street from the lake. The view is a huge perk!
I'm so lucky to have found a job so quickly! Digging the paycheck.
I stayed my first few nights in Taupo at the campgrounds here. I really liked this one spot on the side of the Huka falls river.

And it was free, so appealing to my cheap side.
|Visitors at my campsite. Guess I'm a messy eater. They were feasting on my crumbs.|
I also found a place to live! Not bad for only being in town 5 days, eh?
My new place is awesome. The rooms are huge. It's a great, big, open house. I've met 3 outta 4 of my flatmates and they're all very nice.
It's so nice to have my things unpacked and have wifi, hot showers and a washing machine.
I'm SO EXCITED TO HAVE A KITCHEN!
But wait...there's more....
I didn't think ANYTHING could be better then having a kitchen to cook in...but this definitely trumps that.

|And a few minutes later....Beaut sunset on Lake Taupo|
The views from the backyard and the 2 decks overlook Lake Taupo and Mt Ruapeho, when it's clear.
I believe I'll be drinking many early morning coffees from this deck.
