Lots of serious tourism action! Kyla: we have done so much since we last posted. We went to Kelly Tarltons aquarium- very touristy. We are still struggling a bit from the journey, but plowing through. We were at the car rental and I did it! I drove and am here to tell the tail. It was, of course, fine.

There is a beautiful sculpture garden which only opened 2 years ...

We made our way to Rotorua, with the intention of staying a couple of nights. The campsite had naturally hot pools and a natural steam oven/ hole in the ground which slow cooks your food. Within 5 minutes of our site was a hot water beach, where the water seemed to be only knee deep and was as warm as ...
