Auckland to Wellington ... now to blog

We just completed our trip down the North Island. Today found us photographing New Zealand's erupting volcano, Mount Tongariro.  This, after a delightrful hour or more spent at L’Art'e Cafe, enjoying stunning food, exquisite art, AND, the best coffee I've tasted outside of Italy.

It's been magic ... a truly magic couple of days.  And there's the fact that early summer in New Zealand is not to be sneezed at. I hope my body clock has made the switch though ... otherwise I'm drinking red wine at 6.49am Belgian time. (NZ is 12 hours ahead).

Yesterday we were wandering the paths of Wai-O-Tapu, one of Rotorua's thermal parks, as per the photograph that follows.

Tomorrow ...

Tomorrow I will begin writing up some of the things seen ... sharing photographs taken of that erupting volcano.

Sleep ... must sleep now.
