Day 4 – The fragrant town of Rotorua
So I think I’m finally getting the hang of driving on the left side of the road. After spending three days in the Auckland area, Ryan and I drove south to explore the fragrant town of Rotorua (a.k.a. Sulphur City) which is built on a volcanic field. Today we took a walking tour of the city, spent some time in Rotorua’s beautiful Government Gardens, and explored Kuirau Park’s thermal activity (boiling mud pools, steamy gas, and fumaroles). Some say that the smelly sulphurous air is good for you (note: it smells like rotten eggs). We soaked our feet in the Kuirau Park’s hot springs and afterwards they felt so soft. The hot springs at Rororua are magical!
