Wednesday 3rd December
Today we travelled to Waitomo on the Magic Bus Tour. On our way to Waitomo we stopped off at the Angolian Rabbit Shearing place. That was a bit wierd to say the least!!! Jen thought they were going to skin them alive.... Tee Hee!
In Waitomo we had to squeeze ourselves into the most ridiculously small wetsuits, which was tiring in itself then had to trek across a field to reach the caves where the glow worms were...
After our glow worm encounter we headed to Rotorua the heart of new zealand! the coach decides to break down in the middle of the raod and we had to flag down another bus... We ended up jumping on a bus full of Koreans, which was quite amusing :-)
We finally arrived in Rotorua and had 5 minutes to get ready for the Maori Cultural Experience... Lots of yummy food.
The next day we explored the Wai-o-tapu thermal wonderland. There we saw some of the most amazing sights we had ever seen.... steaming hot thermal pools and bubbling mud pools. The stench though was horrendous, like rotten eggs! we also wathed the daly erruption of the Lady Knox Geyser!
