New Zealand Holiday in Review - January 20166:30 AM
Hobbiton Movie Set
Yes, Rotorua stinks like rotten egg in places, but don't judge the whole town on that alone. If you can get through it, you will find some wonderful things. TIP: If you are driving through town, put your car on air recycle rather than drawing from the outside and you should be fine.
Taupo is somewhere we will be back to. It is a thriving town and had access to both summer and winter activities, such as mountain biking and skiing.
If you are even a little bit interested in how alive our earth is under our feet, this is the area you want to visit. To have access to directly stand on an active volcano 50km out to sea, see bubbling mud baths and feel the heat of steam and see the sulphur coming directly from the earth, this is the place for you as you can do it all.
As you can see, I am enthusiastic about getting back there and seeing more of the beautiful countryside that this neighbour has to offer.
If you have any questions about our adventures, please leave them in the comments below and I will be happy to answer what I can from our experiences.
I hope you can join me again for a closer look at some of these places we went to.
