Did I say I would choose three highlights from my trip to New Zealand? Impossible. If I cheat, and count my two Kaikoura posts as one, then there’s room for one more. So here are some photos from Rotorua, famous for its geothermal activity and accompanying smells.
You’d have to be pretty stupid to ignore these warning signs.
Even on the paths, it’s best to tread lightly, like this pied stilt.
Rotorua Golf Club Arikikapakapa has its own geothermal challenges. I wonder if they’ve thought of training pied stilts to retrieve golf balls from the thermal areas.
I had great fun at both places, so here are links to their websites.
