aotearoa

TawhaiFalls is more famously known as Gollum's Pool and can be a few minutes drive below theTongariro National Park Visitor Centre. For Lord of the Rings fans this is a 'must do' place to visit as one of many filiming locations in Aotearoa New Zealand. Getting to the falls is an easy short walk from the sign posted car park. Walking to the river to view the falls includes steps through mountain toatoa and beech forest and the falls themselves rush over the edge of an ancient lava flow. Like any waterfall it is best viewed after rain however, keep in mind it is in the central plateau which can be covered in snow in the winter. Definitely a place to explore if you are visiting the mountains any time of year. . . . . #peopleplacesnz #capturenz #placestovisit #traveladdict #wanderlust #wonderfulplaces #yolosolo #earthpixnz #yolosolotravel #youonlyliveonce #purenz #destinationnz #traveller #aotearoanewzealand #beautifuldestinations #nzmustdo #newzealandfinds #newzealandlife #newzealandvacations #newzealandguide #newzealand #aotearoa #nzwaterfalls #waterfalls #gollumspool #tawhaifalls #lordoftherings #lotr #tongariro #ruapehu @tongariroexpeditions @tongariroriverrafting @visitruapehu

Exhibit 1: When you imagined and expect that your see-saw ride to be romantic especially with the sun on your face and a lil additional slow-mo in your head. Exhibit 2: In reality you're just praying hard you dont get thrown off the see-saw or have any groin injuries. #ARdventuresz #Aotearoa @amirulscholes

I'm no photographer, so these pictures don't do it justice. But, man our country is beautiful #aotearoa #waioekagorge #gisborne #nz #beautifulnz #weekendaway

The very best part about winter ❄️ is the cozy feeling of snuggling up by the fire and reading a book 📖

Another great trip to Auckland to train at @hughesacademynz with my day ones @lilyfaewrestling and @stevenbusch317 🙌🏾 Huge thank you to @standardhero_graham_hughes for busting our asses in the first 30 mins of training, and for taking the time to get into the intricacies of legitimate wrestling technique, and general ring etiquette 🙏🏾 Also a big thanks to @kartikswmay @spencerkyle02 @tabitha_professional_wrestler_ @finbergin and the other trainees for making us feel so welcome. Always a pleasure 🤼‍♂️ #prowrestling #training #exercise #gains #technique #friendship #nzwrestling #aotearoa
