With Amandine, Sebastien and Markus, we left Auckland in a Campervan to go to the hot water beach, where you can dig a hole in the sand to find hot springs! Then beautiful Cathedral cove on a sunny morning.

In the Waitomo cave, we learned about the glowing worm.

In Rotorua, I visited a Maori village. A guide explained to me how people use the thermal water. I enjoyed a tasty meal cooked in the ground oven. And I saw a tradiotinnal show.

In the national park of Tongariro, we had a nice walk around snowy volcanos.

Just before taking the ferry to the South Island, we visited the Te Papa museum of Wellington.
