The Blue and Green Lake just Outside Rotorua

Well, we spent a few days in the beautiful but very smelly town of Rotorua.  The smell, well that's due to the many, many sulphur springs throughout the town.  Even down to steam coming out of roadside drainpipes! Yep, it's a smelly tourist town.

Our Little Visit To The Piha Cafe

This cute, quirky café is about five minutes from Piha beach on the west coast of New Zealand. It's located on the steep slant of a hill, but it has ample parking even though it was busy.

Our Second Grayline Tour in New Zealand

Overall review of our second full day tour with Greyline Tours. We were picked up from the centre of Auckland; this tour was also one of those multi-stop tours. We had three destinations we were going to visit today on the north island of New Zealand.

The Very Hidden Gem That Is The Food Truck

We went to the City Works Depot, on 90 Wellesley St West. This restaurant is placed in the heart of Auckland’s CBD, its surrounded by lots of parking and is near key transport lines into the city. Defiantly a great location for both city dwellers and travellers coming into the city.

Not Much Gusto At Gusto Italiano In Auckland

Gusto Italiano has a wide variety of authentic Italian food to appease your taste. Located on the Ponsonby Road in Auckland, Gusto Italiano has a lot of competition for your money. Even opposite you have a gelato ice cream place, oh heaven.

The Very Dissapointing Hangi Meal We Ate At Kiwi Kai in Rotorua

So it was our final day in Rotorua, and we headed to Kiwi Kai for a nice Hangi lunch.  Kiwi Kai is situated right next to the main shopping centre, and with parking, just opposite was a really good location.

The Nomad Restaurant in Auckland

The Nomad restaurant is located in Point Chevalier in Auckland, situated in a busy district of local shops. The parking was limited, but I am sure there would be local transport links around.

Some Authentic Latin American Food at Besos Latinos, Auckland

Besos Latinos translates to many kisses. Este lugar es increíble (or, this place is incredible)!! Somewhere you could walk past every day for your whole life and not know it was there.  Tucked away deep within Elliot Stables is this fantastic Caribbean, South American, Mexican restaurant.

The Day At Auckland Zoo in New Zealand

I have been to many Zoos in my time. So coming to Auckland Zoo in New Zealand was something I was looking forward to.

The Very Trendy Burger Fuel Restaurant

BurgerFuel is a company with a chain of restaurants that quite honestly I had not heard of until going to New Zealand. It was the first experience for me even though they have a few across the pond in Australia and a few in other countries too. BurgerFuel is a gourmet burger chain restaurant

A Tour Along The West Coast with Unique Visions Tours

Brett picked us up from our accommodation, and we headed off on our west coast tour of Auckland’s North Island. We were the only ones on the tour but that was no problem for him, he is more than happy to mix things up and tailor the tours an individual need, wants and desires. Below are the places we went and the experiences we had there.

A Night at the Mini Golf NZ

Who does not love a good game of mini golf? We had seen the Mini Gold NZ place a few times while driving through Rotorua.
