      ... but I restrained myself as we had just had coffee and Jaffa chocolate cake inside the cafe! We were also heading straight to another fun thing that Miramar has to offer - the WETA cave, which is the workshop that all film buffs would enjoy. It’s a fun minimuseum of the company that brought The Lord of the Rings, King Kong, The Adventures of Tintin and The Hobbit to life. All sorts of models created and some fabulous life-size trolls outside protecting ...

      Then it was off to Napier.

      ... in Wellington, which I would compare to the New York museum of natural history, full of too many things to see in one day. But we did explore for a few hours and enjoy the place- even if I never left the second floor, which wa all biodiversity and dynamic earth, with an earthquake stimulator and all.

      ... fifteen miles from Rotorua town. It's home to the famous Lady Knox geyser which erupts at exactly 10.15am every day. We arrived early to avoid the crowds and got the best seats in the improvised theatre style arrangement around the geyser. It was spectacular spurting a jet of hot water twenty metres into the sky for a good ten minutes although it was a minor disappointment that the eruption is induced by pouring a mix of unharmful chemicals into ...
