Many Adventures: Rotorua

This post is going to showcase everything that I did in Rotorua in the North Island. It was a beautiful…yet sulfur smelly place to be due to the geothermal activity in the area. 

One of my first views of Rotorua was a beautiful rainbow in the Government Gardens

I met some friendly cow along a beautiful walk around Lake Tarawera.
Then my friend Brittany visited! I am traveling to the South Island with her for the next month. 

Above we are in the Glow Worm Caves but you were not able to see any of the Glow Worms in a picture since they live in dark caves. But click on the link above and you can see some images from the caves.

After a long drive back from the Glow Worm Caves we decided to go to the Polynesian Spa hot pools and relax while huge the moon and millions of stars were out at night. 

The next day we went Zoorbing down the hills! It was so much fun! I wish that we could have went Zoorbing all day long. So what is Zoorbing? It is a Kiwi invention of going down a hill in a giant ball…and yes it is a blast!

Thankfully the water was so warm and there were hot tubs to go in between rides because it was so cold outside. 

This is by far my favorite picture of Brittany and I. We were cracking up and being engulfed by the stinky steamy sulfur mist at Wai-o-tapu Thermal Wonderland. 

There is a beautiful yet sulfur smelly walk around all of the colorful thermal lakes and waters in the park. It was so vibrant with life and harsh melting death.
