Under the volcano

A travel blog entry by rogergpilgrim


... volcanic activity (but no Maori culture!). There is lots of scientific information (after all, it is the new rock and roll), and when we reach the bottom of the trail, we take a delightful boat trip around the Rotomahana Lake to view Mount Tarawera more closely - we can see one of the craters formed in the eruption very clearly. There is also more lively viewing in a very obliging geyser that, because it goes off every 15 minutes sends a stream ...

Tours galore

... himself, when he'd had a year off, and he took great delight in leaving me with "enjoy going back to work". Had he been Australian, he'd have been more disappointed to realise I still have two months to go; as it was, he was just pleased for me. Another bus, another tour. A better one, though.

Now, that sounds like a suitable mantra for the coming year ...

Hobbits, Sulphur, Geysers and a film set!

... habitat. They are more mammals than birds (they have fur not feathers) and they are about the size of a rooster. The tour concluded with the Geysers. The Prince of Wales geyser starts off first before the larger Pokuhutu geyser starts (2 times an hour). The water is shot out 30m high. Quite an impressive sight. After we walked back to the van we headed west towards the Waitomo Caves.

Day 65

We got ourselves out to the ...
