    ... s with seemingly loads of geothermal parks and countless hot spring spas scattered about. There was even steam coming up from the storm drains and even in the town centre you would get a good whiff of eggy poo. After stocking up on Pak N Save pick & mix we headed back to Lake Okara and had another night at this cool little camp spot on the lake. The next morning we drove on roughly an hour down to ...

    ... as well as other little bits and pieces. The place itself wasn’t as pretty as Raglan but beautiful in a different way. It had white sand beaches unlike the West coast, which is black. The city is a lot more populated so there’s not as much green foliage; it’s also a lot lot bigger. The Mount is very beautiful and looks very prehistoric.

The fielding is a mixture with John Terrell taking a good catch at the wicket off Ian Petherick while Ian impersonates a high-jumper doing the Fosbury Flop as he goes over the boundary fence after ...

    ... for planks, such as 2x4's and the upper portion is used for pulp/paper. The tree's growth is very rapid due to climate and land composition with harvests occurring every 25 years!

    Our first stop was Te Puia's Maori Arts & Crafts Institute, where we saw the recreation of an ancient Maori village, as well as Maori carvers and weavers. Traditional Maoria beliefs hold the carving of poles to represent ...

    ... the top corner was now resting on the ground. After about 10 minutes we managed to prop the bed up and finally went to sleep.

    The next morning we decided we would head to Taupo as it was on the way back to Rotorua where we had to drop the car back Thursday morning. It was about 130km drive but it takes so long over here because the roads are so windy. Not only that but Kiwis drive like maniacs! The lorry drivers are no exception, hurtling down the mountains at ridiculous ...
