New Zealand in Pictures - Day 5

More pictures! We started near Hamilton, spend the day in Rotorua, and ended in Napier. Lots of scenic shots this day.

Day 5 - 12/23

Morning coffee.
A very important start.

And now: New Zealand countryside.


The old bath house in Rotorua that now serves as a museum.
Doug is very excited.
Especially about his hard hat.
I'm not so sure about the hard hat. The sign said it was recommended for people over 5'4"  Being just a sliver under the said 5'4" I took mine off and went through without.

And old boiler. It had a TV screen inside showing lava.
From the top of the museum

Leaving the museum
Good lunch, crappy service. We received by far the worst service at this restaurant, and our server was an American, from Texas. No tip for him, but he wasn't expecting one anyway, tipping isn't commonplace there.
Gardens in Rotorua.

And here comes more scenery:

See all those curves? They make Doug sad he's driving a campervan. They also make Angela feel slightly car sick.

The Doug sad face.
Apparently their stop signs are not octagons.  I bet that makes math different (because the metric wouldn't...)
And it has a go instead of slow!

Holiday park site in Napier.
Cooking on the two burner stove, in the only two pots that came in the van.
Sink/drying rack/counter space/shower (the nozzle pulls out of the sink for an outdoor shower).
Some Christmas decoration.  Hard to see in this picture, but I had stockings hung too.  Little tiny ones, from the curtains.
