My latest trip to New Zealand was a week away with the family. We mainly stayed in Auckland with some relatives, and made a trip down to Rotorua.
I used this opportunity to eat as many green lipped NZ mussels as I could - so delicious, especially with garlic bread to mop up all that creamy sauce!
I also ate my body weight in delicious ice cream and indulging in all the kiwi brands that we don't seem to have in oz.
Including Kapiti - this is the Pohutukawa honey flavour. Delish!
Rotorua brekky at Capers Epicurean - fluffy pancakes with banana, pecan and maple syrup
After breakfast, it was off to Wai-O-Tapu thermal wonderland:
Waiting for Lady Knox geyser to erupt
Lady Knox is stimulated to erupt at 10:15am daily
It's a bit surreal walking around Wai-O-Tapu (and basically various places around Rotorua) and finding random bits of landscape steaming and bubbling away!
My favourite would definitely be the champagne pool and the devil's bath, such vibrant colours.
Next time I visit NZ, it will most likely (hopefully!) be to tick off the Milford Trek off my bucket list!
