Today we departed Auckland on a 3hr journey south west, headed for Waitomo Caves. We think we took the long route but it was a beautiful drive nonetheless, with the landscape becoming more and more "Lord of the Rings'ish" as we go. We even passed our first volcano.

... mind you can't actually see the river and you have no judgment of distance other than looking along the cave walls to try and judge! Pretty scary!

Here there were thousands of glow worms and we had a short science lesson to discover that they are actually 'Canabalistic, shagging, illuminated-**** maggots' but I ...
