What an incredible way to see in my 30s!! My beautiful wife surprised me with a weekend away <3
First stop in Great Lake Taupo for a night, such a gorgeous little town.
Next stop Rotorua! It was so incredible to see the smoking ground...felt like i was in space! Such an awesome experience being inside the volcanic crater. Loved seeing the contrast of the bright blue hot water pools with the smoke coming out.
On the way home we had to stop in at the Redwood forest to see the giant redwood trees!!
