We arrived in Auckland this morning. We picked up the campervan and headed off. Who would have thought I'd have the ability to house my office in a camper van as we travelled around the north island!! We were tired after the flight, so pulled over for a quick 2 hour snooze. When we arrived in Rotorua, we went straight to the Skyline (gondola). It was beautiful. We also did the luge (so much fun) from the summit down, then caught the chairlift back up. We had lunch overlooking the lake.
We found a campsite, and didn’t have any problems getting a spot. It has a pool and also 2 hot springs, so we had a relaxing time lolling around in them and talking about our day. We headed out to pick up dinner, but stoped by the footy field next to our caravan park to look at the bubbling mud pools and steam coming from the ground.
