A hearty breakfast before we go on our drive down to the Hobbiton Movie Set.
Green pastures in the middle of winter! Serenity at its best! Just wow!
Hobbiton Movie Set. The Shire in the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogy movies. Gorgeous!
Hot springs in New Zealand? Yes, please. After visiting over 60 hot springs in the USA 🇺🇸, Iceland 🇮🇸, and Italy 🇮🇹, we can call ourselves hot spring lovers.
Day 43: 🇳🇿Rotorua, New Zealand 🇳🇿 We took a stroll in the town of Rotorua and found some hot springs and mud pots in a public park. No wonder there are palm trees thriving here in the middle of winter. We also found a playground to our kids’ delight.
Day 43: 🇳🇿Okere Falls, New Zealand 🇳🇿
New Zealand is all about nature. We used the day to drive around New Zealand to check out the waterfalls.
Our drive continues. Bay of Plenty. Plenty of seashells!
