We’re ‘land-cruising’ around New Zealand for a couple of weeks. First stop: Waitomo Caves. When I asked my friend Donna, who had come to NZ 25+ years ago what her ‘not to miss’ sights were, the Waitomo Glow Worm Caves were at the top of her list. So, here I am:
The day included: Abseiling (rappelling), glow worms (actually the glowing poo of larvae), tubing, water slide, Flying Fox (zip-line, in the cave), jumping off waterfalls and finally climbing up three waterfalls back into daylight. What a fun experience! (With only a couple moments of claustrophobia – thinking “how would I get out, if there were an earthquake right now…”)
We spent yesterday driving from west to east across New Zed and now we’re in the Hawke’s Bay region. Doing something a little more ‘civilized’ – wine tasting and gourmet meals! Yes, last night’s meal included sweetbreads and lamb’s tongue. Hmm, glowing poo or lamb’s tongue – wait, which is more civilized??
Having a blast –
