We have been without regular internet since leaving Wellington on 6 May. Therefore, James and I have been unable to update our blog. This doesn’t mean that we haven’t been off adventuring, though! In spite of a spate of bad weather on the North Island, plus a nasty 24-hour stomach virus I caught in Turangi, our family has enjoyed a big hike in Tongariro National Park, the geothermal wonders of Rotorua, kayaking on Lake Rotoma, and a magical day in Hobbiton.
Check back in a day or two for photos and highlights. I promise we’ll have some new stuff up soon.
Also, we’re winding down our last two weeks in New Zealand, so I’ll be reposting some of our most popular blog entries as well as a few “best of” and reflective posts about our time here in Aotearoa.
