The beautiful sights of New Zealand, or Aeoteroa

all seasons in one day

HI all faithful subscribers! Writing from Rotoroa, geothermal area with huge lake, geysers, volcano, and it STINKS! There was an awkward moment in the van on the way here befoire we realsied it was the town that stunk, really sulphurous. Anyways we arrived into Auckland on Thursday and hired a campervan. Were imagining some small thing and its HUGE! Kithcne, big bed/table & chairs, bathroom....its wicked! Anyways headed off to the east coast for the night and woke up to incredible scenery, beautiful green hills and valleys, lots 0of cattle, sheep, ducks, goats, turkeys, evrything imaginable! Really different after dryness of Oz. The coast was gorgeous, we jumped down some sand dunes in the black volcanic sand and played with some rock pools, rocls covered in baby mussels, and found a dead portugese manowar. Today we are in Rotorea where we are going to hells gate, a geothermal area to have a mud path, hang out in some hot pools, and also visit some Maori cultural villages, a third of the maori population live here. Also some hiking round lakes, forests, and volcanoes on the agenda before heading to Lake Taupo next. NZ is really beautiful in the style of Lord of the rings. Love to ALL and write again soon!
