So to the end of January 2011. Freaky!
Day 29 was indeed travelling on the Overlander Train through the North Island to National Park Village. We were seated in the observation carriage though the weather was pretty miserable.
Day 30 was a walk up Mt Doom and through Mordor itself! Unfortunately saw no dwarfs, just lots of other walkers. We were very lucky with the weather - it was a glorious day! My legs are so very tired now but glad to have done it.
Day 31 was another tran related new thing - I stood outside on a moving train! It's a proper carriage designed to let people stand outside and look at the views, so thoroughly safe but I've definitely never done that before!
