... the village to learn a few Maori games and skills before we were taken indoors for the concert. We got to watch some traditional and contemporary songs and dances (including the hula), which was just incredible. The Maori people are such beautiful singers.

On 24th we did the Tongario Alpine Crossing, a 22km walk across a volcano! The walk is rated as one of the worlds top 10 day walks.
