I know I'm in my own little world, but it's OK.
They know me here...

Rotorua, NZ

These are some of the photographs I took while in Rotorua, New Zealand - geothermal hot spot of the North Island. It's my second visit here in three years - Mother Nature is amazing.
I also visited Te Puia, one of the Maori cultural arts & craft institutes in the city.

  1. I really do need to get my butt over to NZ. Looks like you're having a fab time.

  2. Seeing that mud pool photo threw me back to when I visited - I was about 8yrs old (umm Gr 2??). Found it fascinating to watch it bubble and plonk onto itself.

  3. Hi Cath & Nicky - glad to play virtual tour guide for you both!
