    We arrived on Rotorua in the rain (sense a pattern emerging?) and checked in to a lovely campsite on the shores of Lake Rotorua. Quite literally on the shore... We parked about two metres from the water and shared our pitch with a group of rather vocal ducks! By the time we arrived it was fairly late into the day so we went for a drive into the town to find Kate some walking boots (we learnt the hard way that her Asia shoes were not waterproof the previous day!) The ...

    ... time we all stayed together (in other words Mike and Damian went slower and waited for me, although I was going heaps faster then on my first attempt).

    Got the chairlift up to the top again and had a wander through the Jelly Belly shop, of course we had to buy a stack of different flavours to take home with us.

    ... where I had Masala Dosa, Lassi and I bought some Pokodas/Parathas to take away. They packed it well for me as I was going to Christchurch in the afternoon, reaching CCH in the evening and as I wanted to spend my time exploring, ready food would be handy. I definitely recommend Chimney`s for good food at great value.

    We decided when we woke up we needed another night at Rotorua. Yesterday we hadn't seen anything of interest due to the wasted time at the medical centre. As we asked in the morning for another night we had to move rooms which was a hassle but got us a better room at the same price. When we were all ready we left the hostel to see what Rotorua had to offer. We first made our way to Blue Lake. It ...
