2007-12-05: Whakatane - Matamata

Thumbnail da map
It is 2009-03-11, more than a year after the trip to NZ, and I finally got my lazy a** up and continued working on this report. Please forgive me the slight delay. :) However, it is very interesting to browse through those "old" photos. I feel a bit like "have we really done all that great stuff?".
Thumbnail that's what I call breakfast
By accident we booked a house instead of a room. We had two TVs, 2 doors to enter and loads of space. We started the day with a huge breakfast and then boarded a ship that got us to "White Island" -- which included encountering some friendly dolphins. (next image) White Island is an island and a volcano, I think even the most active one of NZ.

Thumbnail Back from the trip...
It was fascinating, and the volcanic sights of NZ really made me remember how I like that geological stuff since I was a kid, and I guess so NZ is partially a reason why we are going to visit Etna and Stromboli in a couple of months. If I remember correctly, the preparation for NZ even re-ignited my fascination for caves, and now I am an active member of the local group -- strange connections...
