Maori cultural villageDecember 13, 2019 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C
Started the day with a trip to Wai-O-Tapu. An active area with sulphur smells, hot and multi coloured lakes.
They have a fake geizer which they pour soap into and it erupts. After an hour and a half of walking around we had seen the sights to headed towards Rotarua and the I site information center. They said the best thing to do would to see a Maori cultural visit.
I still had not managed to get a new camera after mine got damaged, so found some big camera shops and picked one up. Whoop. Gave the old one to Hannah, as I'm nice like that 😁
We checked out the free campsites and none had any spaces, so had to check into a proper campsite. At least in could get all 12 gadgets on charge and cram in some admin.
With the Maori pickup at 6.20 we tried to do some quick laundry. Frustratingly the driers were totally ineffective so we had to leave all our clothes in there, whilst we set off on the bus to the Maori Tamaki village.
Village was cool with an intro to the culture and the Haka. Quite interactive followed by a big feast. With the number of people there, they must be making a killing! Got back to the campsite to run the drier a few more times before bed.Read more
