Hi everyone!

Here is another short blog:) New Zeland is just too beautiful to spend my time behind the screen of my computer:)

Tuesday was our last free afternoon in Auckland, and we decided we were going to spend it by relaxing. And we did:)

We went to this really cool second hand shop, that also sold a lot of new clothes and books. Really cool:) 

After this, we took the ferry to Devonpoint, a island near Auckland. The island is known for it's cute shops and the beatiful view from the volcano.

That evening, we had dinner at the sky tower. It was a really large tower, and the top spins around with 1 revelation per hour, so you can see the entire city from above.
it was just beautiful.

The visit to Wairakei Geothermal Power station was really nice as well. :)
Look at these lovely clouds:)

I really need to blog more often, because I forget about things so easily.

I will tell you all a long and boring story about yesterday though.

Yesterday morning we had to wake up at 6:45 am (!) to go to Shweeb. Shweeb is a company that hase made a cycling monorail, which is pretty cool. It was based in a sort of adventure park, so we got to do all kinds of cool things. After that, we went to Rotorua and we decided we could to with some relaxation, so we went to this beautiful spa. It was one of the 10 best spa's of the world and I can really tell why. The water was lovely, really hot, which forced you to relax, and the pools had this amazing view of the lake, with steam coming off of it:) After that we had dinner at the Maori Village. We had a traditional Maori meal, that was cooked for two hours beneath the ground. The Maori sang their traditional songs and it was really lovely. The village was so beaufitul and I am really happy I was able to be a part of that.

It's saturday today, so we don't have any company visits. This afternoon we are going to some beautiful field and walk around there, and after that we are going out for dinner. Tomorrow we will do a crossing (hike) of 8 hours, so that will be pretty tough.

See yall soon!

And just some more pictures:)
