New Zealand’s North Island landscape is dynamic. The roads wind around mountain after mountain. The van grumbles to make it up one steep incline and then you’re pressing on the brakes as it starts to race down the next. The passenger grips onto what ever he can, feeling like he might tumble down off the edge of the road to the valley way down below.
There are rivers running through the numerous mountains and valleys. They create beautiful waterfalls as they cascade over the steep cliffs. Luckily for the overworked driver and passenger there are signs along the route to pointing out where to stop, rest and admire the falls.
