I had looked at the maps and had a vision. I had this vision of a snow clad mountain reflected in the water. It would be a photographer's dream. I also realised that said mountain was a long way away, but that didn't matter, it would be magnificient anyway.
I waited for days. In fact, it was the fifth day of our week before we got a worthwhile glimpse.
Despite its distance, the mountain was still impressive, if not reflective, and acted like a magnet to me. I had to go ski it, just to say I'd been there because, in reality, I was as sick as a dog with some virus that had waylaid me on day two and from which I was still recovering.
That's one thing I'll always remember about my trip to Taupo.
