The very nice holiday continues... Highlights of the day:
a) The drive from Waitomo Caves village to Rotorua via Taupo giving us a long, extended view of the tranquil Lake Taupo.
b) The blanketing sulphur smell over the town of Rotorua thanks to the high geothermal activity in the area. I am not a fan of the sulphur smell, but it is quite facinating that such a phenomenon occurs! And it is super weird to see smoke coming off the ground in different parts of the town!
c) The visit to the Te Puia geothermal park where, for the first time in my life, I saw natural pools of boiling mud and three amazing geysers that spurt hot water out like tall fountains every hour or so! Super freaky phenomenon, if you ask me.
d) Seeing the Kiwi bird for the first time. It is so adorably cute! But I must say it had the mannerisms of a rat than that of a penguin!
554 more to go.
