A visit to New Zealand cannot be completed without a visit to Rotorua, It is like no other place. The absolute power of the earth hits you right in the face. In Rotorua you see boiling mud, water, peer into volcanoes, and relax in a hot pool. We went to Wai-O-Tapu (Sacred Waters) where we saw some of the marvels of this thermal wonderland. Everywhere you go in Rotorua, you see steam coming out of somewhere.
