Caves, Cruising and a Prison


On Wednesday we set out for a place called Waitmo to visit some caves, we had two tours through two different caves both tours were completely different and both were great here are some photos of the caves well we were only allowed to take photos in the first cave. We also had lunch at the second cave before the tour a bacon and egg bagel with cheese and barbecue sauce and mayo and it was really nice and I got some hot chips too and they were great too............

After the tours we set off for our next motel this was a 300km trip and we spent two nights at that motel it was ok,had good internet connection but no bath.

Today we went on a cruise around Lake Taupo then back to the motel and I suggested to Tim that we check out the old prison the oldest prison in New Zealand and Tim was all for it and have to say it was also great. Tim like hearing all the ghost stories and me well I just love wondering around old goals................lol

The back to the motel for another night before we have our last tour tomorrow and wine tour then we head to Wellington another long drive as that is 300kms from here and we spend our last two nights there and will do some sight seeing around the town........
