On our second full day here in New Zealand we went on a tour of White Island this is an active volcano here in New Zealand and what a bloody good tour it was I would highly recommend it to anyone.www.whiteisland.co.nz
The trip wasn't without it's dramas though for me on the way over there I got sea sick and throw up this happened just as we arrived at the island. Tim was worried I would fall over while on the tour as I forgot to pack my joggers and only had my semi-flat sandals but I didn't fall didn't even stumble during the walk, although Tim did stumble a few times and I said as much to him back on the boat for the trip back to the mainland he wasn’t amused..............lol
When we got back to the boat another passenger gave me a couple of sea sickness tables and they helped a lot as I didn't get sea sick on the way back. However I was sitting out the back but it got to cold, wet through the water splashing over the sides Tim was with me and he got up and went inside a minute latter I stood up to join him and the boat was rocked really hard by a big wave and I was thrown off my feet backwards hitting my head pretty hard I also hit my right elbow and bit my tongue hard. There was no blood but I was dazed, the boat's crew were fantastic and very worried about me, I was given an ice pack for my head and wet facecloth for my forehead this happened about 45 minutes before we docked and I was very tired but Tim kept making sure I didn't fall asleep. Yes it was suggested that I go to A & E but I didn't want to buy the time we docked I was feeling better, the skipper pulled me aside and wanted to check I was ok. They of course filled out an incident report.
After the tour we headed to Rotorua were we are staying for 2 nights on arriving we found out we had been upgraded to a two bedroom unit as there is road work right out the front of the 1 bedroom units. This unit is great and it has a large spa bath which I used pretty much as soon as we arrived and it felt great to lay in the hot water. We are staying at Brylin Motel in Rotorua and I would recommend this place as well............
