    Rotorua Geyser Lookout B&B

    November 14, 2019 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    Efter en lång dag med lysmaskgrottor, hobbitby, mökpyspark och promenad i redwood-trädkronor var det skönt att komma hem till Dave och katterna och de övriga gästerna på vårt B&B, Dave var mycket pratglad och hjälpsam, och tipsade oss om de två sista aktiviteterna, som ju var kanonbra båda två!Read more

    Det här visade sig bli resans mest aktivitetsfyllda dag. Man kan inte hålla på så i det långa loppet, inte minst eftersom det blir ganska dyrt (i detta fall 2.500 kr för båda). Oftast blev det en eller två aktiviteter om dagen, plus förflyttning och bokning av nästa natts hotell och rundvandring i staden man hamnat i och bloggning och så dags att sova.

    Day 3 - February 23

    February 24, 2016 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    Kia ora,

    Note: I have had trouble uploading photos here, but will hopefully have good wifi access when we get to Wellington in a couple days.

    Yesterday, we drove through a lot of farm country in the morning. I really enjoyed seeing so many green, rolling hills; and I would have loved the opportunity to run up and down a few of them - assuming a wouldn't be arrested for trespassing on someone's property. We made a stop at a town known for the soft drink L&P, and took a group photo in front of a large bottle. Their slogan is "World Famous in New Zealand." I then bought some of it and tried it. It was good, but also my first soda in a couple years, and made me remember how sugary those drinks are.

    Our next stop was in a town where the Hobbiton tour was. I did not go, because there are other Lord of the Rings areas I would rather see. The ones who did attend it, said it was good.

    A few of us got dropped off at the Redwood Forest, and I went on a trail with a girl from Portland, Oregon. We covered a lot of ground. She said these redwoods were not as big as the California ones, but I was impressed with it being my first time among redwoods.

    At night, a few of us got a ride into town and went out to eat. It has been fun meeting people from around the world and learning about their life back home. I was enjoying learning about life in the Netherlands while eating fish and chips last night.
