Isabelle wonderful person that she is moved her booked trip to a geysir and a thermal park back a day. That way I could join her.
So after I reached Roturua and booked into the hostel we met up and went along Lake Rotorua past a living Maori village to Kuriau Park which is full of sulfur holes and geothermal activity.
The evening was spent at the local faire with a stopover at the night market. The latter one consisting mainly of eateries.
After a pint at a bar it was time to get back to sleep.
