New Zealand - Rotorua

A travel blog entry by tereza-gonzalo


... honeymoon in NZ which seems to be quite a fashionable thing to do this year because later we met at least 3 other couples coming to NZ for the same purpose. As we were chatting and at the same time cuddling with one of the fluffiest cats I had ever touched (btw. its name was Pickles) we didnīt notice that our group had already left. We started to walk quickly back to The Shire where we found our guide waiting for us. We almost missed our bus back to the car park. That could ...

Whilst we had time to kill we popped back down the road to the Lava glass blowing centre where we spent a little more money ...

Haka's and Hangi's

... br> This evenings entertainment was the Maori experience that me, Georgia and Kelly went to, the others stayed at camp and cooked. However we had to take Molly which had only 2 front seats so I had to lay down in the back of the van on the campbed whilst on route to Te Puia, great fun when the police drove past and Georgia just yelled 'Get down!'.
We got to have a bit of a walk first to see all the geothermal mud pools and geysers that went off every 10 minutes or so. Right ...
