Thursday, July 25, 2013

Bit of a lay in this morning up at about 9 breakfast, showered, bag packed, went up to the golf course paid for the room (100 bucks) said goodbye to and Pam and Sonny, popped into Otorohanga had my photo taken with a very big Kiwi bird which was very patriotic also said goodbye to Pat, so big hugs and kisses for her. Making my way to Rotorua today, also known as Rotovegas or Rottenvegas, because of its geothermal positioning this area is covered with pungent smells of sulphur and steam coming out of the ground, drains, golf courses, car parks you name it steam comes out of anywhere, after cutting across the country arrived at Rotorua about 1 o'clock went straight to Te Puia which is a geothermal park, which has the famous Pohutu geyser boiling mud pools traditional culture shows, woodcarving and a kiwi bird house (I couldn't see any they must've been sleeping) etc an interesting day out. Bought a few thing there which includes my taiaha (which is a maori weapon made from Tawa wood), had a wander around Rotorua taking in the fresh air lol before leaving for Tauranga airport to return the car for 6,( 22579 km to 22816 237km today in total just under 1000 km travelled)  on my journey homewards passing a 30 ft giant Kiwi fruit (they're not that big back in Britain lol) arriving back where i had left 3 days earlier around 6.30 check car over, no scratches, full of petrol, emptied the car into Nigel's waiting car and posted the keys back in the thrifty kiosk in Tauranga airport then back home to nigel's house where we chilled and had some beers, went to bed late about 2am after putting the world to rights.
