New Zealand 2016: Headin' South - Lake Aniwhenua, The Maori Wall Carvings of Lake Taupo and the Tongariro Alpine Crossing....


Kia Ora!

Greetings again from Aotearoa with my latest blog post. Last time I left you I had returned to Rotorua after spending a period of time staying on the East Cape where in my opinion I found the 'real, raw New Zealand' living in the Maori community of Tokomaru Bay.

But here's a good evening message from the heart of the North Island of New Zealand..at the great Lake Taupo.

New Zealand 2016: In The Footsteps of The Maori of Rotorua and Encountering the Kiwi.....

Kia Ora!

Greetings from steamy Rotorua! and I don't mean steamy because its a sweltering summer down here in the Bay of Plenty but steamy because this part of the North Island is on top of volcanic geo-thermal activity fields so that means smelly, steaming geo thermal pools as per my video diary.....as I disappear into the smoke...



Its been an extremely busy 10 days here in Rotorua as I've been visiting several Maori villages to discover and learn more about the fascinating culture of the native New Zealanders, so I've summed it up here with a lot of cool stuff for you with lots of photos, videos and info from my explorations.......enjoy
