      ... to stroll the grounds and try out the patankque. We head over to the front desk and ask about getting the set of balls for patankque. The lady gives us this quizzical look...and after a few minutes of trying to explain the game, she retrieves the set explaining she always wondered what they were for.

      ... locations to visit today. Twenty-five kilometres from Rotorua on the road to Taupo we take a detour to walk for a while in the Waimangu volcanic valley. Tourists have been coming to these parts to marvel at volcanic activity for years. The draw card in the mid 1800s being the world renowned Pink and White Terraces.

We followed up our visit with a trip to the nearby "Bee hive" where we were unleashed into a world of honey.
