      This morning we walked through Waimangu Volcanic Valley. Absolutely amazing, boiling water bubbling up from the ground, steam erupting from the rocks and turquoise lakes. It was so unique. This was all formed way back in 1886 when a massive eruption of a mountain devastated the area, Further eruptions occurred 1900/1917 which reshaped the valley as it is today.

Went upstairs to have dinner but most things were already closed so we headed through customs as we had to be airside to collect our currency by 12am, which we had preordered online a few days before.

      ... have heard of Drive Thru. Well this one is Fly By.

      Just next to where we parked there is a Jensen Interceptor parked. I go over to have a look and comment to Kathleen that the stupid driver has gone off leaving the windows open and documents on the rear seat.
