More tourist stuff.

Drove to Taupo. Sky diving too expensive and weather not great so opted out this time. Quite disappointing but will manage it one day. Lake is emmence and you can still see Volcanoes.

Then drove onto Rotourora for geysers and egg stench. Stopped at Orakei Korako and saw mud pools, silica terraces and hot spring cave. Also went to Waitapu Thermal Wonderland to see the Lady Knox geyser that spurts about 12 meters high and the champagne pool with bright orange silica formations.

Drove further north to the Bay of Plenty where we cooked up a massive meat feast on a bar-b-que by the sea and then up the coast to Mount Maunganui to watch surfers. Too cold for us though.
