An Introduction to Taupo

It has been an amazing few days. I have started my position as Hotel Worker with the Millennium Hotel. They call me Hotel Worker because I will be doing tons of different roles to help out during the summer months.

I have been having a great time here. It is a small place, but only a short distance to other spots like Rotorua, Napier, Auckland, and Wellington. Anyway, the streets are lined with coffee shops and cafes. There is a strong Maori culture as many of the street names are something of significance to the cultures. And, this is a BIG triathlon town, with the New Zealand Ironman Triathlon coming this March, and the half-Ironman in just a few weeks.

I hope you enjoy the introduction to Taupo!
