Robin John’s Travel Diary

Friday, 09 Sep 2011

Location: Rotorua, New Zealand

MapIt's a long drive from Auckland to Wellington, so I broke my journey at Rotorua, a well-known geothermal area. I stayed for the night at Rotorua YHA and close to the YHA is a park full of steaming pools and bubbling mud pools. The air is permeated with the characteristic smell of rotten eggs - sulphur dioxide - from the pools.
