samuelship Rotorua, New Zealand - Day #12 - Geothermal / Extreme Sports - Today we spent the morning walking around one of the most spectacular geothermal parks in Rotorua (see picture) Orakei Korako. To see mother nature at its finest is something very special. The park includes pools of water constantly boiling at temperatures reaching 100C. This afternoon we took to the waters and white water rafted down the largest raft-able waterfall in world - Kaituna - 5 meters worth of scary and incredible action. In the evening we took a different approach and visited 'Hells Gate’ another of Rotorua’s impressive geothermal parks that include natural mud and sulpha spa’s which we obviously took advantage of. 1mon

samuelship Rotorua, New Zealand - Day #11 - Te Puia - Today we spent the afternoon/evening at the home to the New Zealand Maori Arts and Crafts Institute, Te Puia. The afternoon started with a tour around the geothermal wonders in the park. These are incredible to look at and see in action followed by tours of the Kiwi hut where they have two living Kiwi birds and then tours of the students workshops (see pictures) where students are taught traditional Mauri skills on three year scholarships. The evening was filled with traditional Mauri dancing and singing and myself getting on stage to learn the ‘HAKA’ followed buy a Mauri feast. Great day! 1mon

This afternoon we jumped into a massive inflatable balls and rolled down hills (zorbing as its widely known) and this evening we Kayaked 8km (return) across a beautiful calm lake to reach some natural hot springs to give the bones a much needed rest. Simply amazing. 2mon
