Travel Blogs from Tauranga

18 days to go

A travel blog entry by richkate


... well and that we all get on! Part of the trip will also involve us going to the boys old orphanage which we are unsure how this will go. We will take it as it comes.
As we are going all that way to Europe we also thought we'd take a good look around as this was not possible 5 years ago when we picked the boys up.

A travel blog entry by elliottjulia


We haven't seen much of Rotorua. It's "the volcanic centre of NZ" and for that reason it stank with sulphate. We wanted to visit the hot spring spa, but it didn't appeal that much after driving past it. Rotorua is also one of the Maori centres. On our first night we went to Maori cultural event.
