Our 2 day road trip
Location: Roturua & lake Taupo, New ZealandThursday we set off for Rotorua, stopping off at an icecream parlour which sold enormous ices. Booked into our spa room and jumped straight in, getting our monies worth! Next day we were up early, drove to Wai-o-tapu, the thermal wonderland and saw so much that just didn't look real. Looked liked Disney had created it or we were on a film set! Lots of boiling pools of mud and water all due to the volcanic activity here. Ate lunch overlooking Lake Taupo. That evening we went to a Mauri cultural evening which was informative and really enjoyable. Next day we rested at the Polynesian spas, in natural mineral pools of temperatures up to 42 degrees celcius! Felt like a new woman when I got out...years younger!
Enjoying the spa and some bubbly in our spa hotel room! That's the life.
Ice creams available here are very generous! All of this for just over £1!
Picnic by Lake Taupo
Tamaki Maori village, twilight tour to their village, meeting house, haka display and hangi meal.
