Okay, so we decided that one round of Zorbing was so much fun, that we needed to go back and DO THAT AGAIN!!!! And that's precicely what we did. First run of the day, they strapped us into the zorb, so that as opposed to sloshing around in the zorb all over the place, they buckle you in, and you roll WITH the ball. VERY STRANGE SENSATION. I don't know how I did it, but I ended up with so much momentum that my ball started bouncing, of course, me along with it, and I hit a fence at the end, LMAO! Second run, we went down the zig-zag track in the hydrorun, and we thought it was hard to manage just going straight down! I watched Chopz try to do the run standing up, and he was doin pretty good (yes, it TOTALLY looks like you're running in a hamster ball!!), and then after the first zig, his feet went out and I watched him sploosh on his ass! LOL! It's hard to navigate, because just when you think it's going pretty good, it changes direction and you end up on your butt again. The last run we did the straight down hydro zorb, and we went in the ball together. THAT, IS BY FAR, THE MOST FUN WAY TO ZORB. Because we were running in it like two drunk giggly gerbils, until my feet gave out, and I ended up sliding on the bottom on my back, which, of course, took Chopz out too, and we ended up in a jumbled heap rollin around this giant inflatable ball of joy. The mouthful of water just makes it even funnier because you can't shut your laugh trap while you're giggling like an idiot. By far, the most fun a person can have. I need me one of these. Apparently they're NZ$12,000. Start saving Hoose. We need one. PRONTO.

Then we went for a stroll along a park that have a lot of little natural geysery-things, bubbling and steaming and boiling and toiling. It's kinda cool for about 3 mintues. Then it just looks like a bunch of steamy holes in the Earth. Sorry mother nature. You gotta do better than that to impress me.

Then we had a spa, with blue cheese, crackers, stuffed olives, chocolate and sparkling wine. This boy knows how to make his lady happy! It was incredibly divine, and then we went for dinner at a resteraunt called Bistro 1284 that was recommended to us by Darryn on FB. Darryn on FB needs a congratulatory hug. Because it was one of the best dining experiences I've had. The atmosphere, the service, the meal, the wine.... it was heaven. Boneless lamb shank wrapped in prosciutto with mint pea mash. OH. MY. GOD. and the desserts??? Shenan got a selection of 3 ice creams and 2 sorbets, all homemade, and I had a whiskey date steamed pudding. HOOOOO.... I'm sorry, I keep talking about the food. But if you had a mouth orgasm of deliciousness like I did, you would be trying to describe it as well! It was incredible!! So if you're ever in Rotorua, PLEASE check out this fabulous place. It is fine dining at it's finest!

Off to the NAKI...... I hope it lives up to the hype!!! ;-) Until next time kids, signing off!! And I'll miss you Zorb. You haven't seen the last of me.
