New Zealand -  as we traveled throughout the North Island, we discovered a strangely beautiful country. Wai-O-Tapu Thermal Wonderland in Rotorua was an other-worldly land of scalding hot, steaming geothermals. We stayed at the most perfectly quaint bed and breakfast that was also a working farm with million dollar views. Nearby, we visited a stable and rode horses along the ridge overlooking the valley and Lake Taupo, taking in the fresh New Zealand air and those views. On to Hobbitton then finally Auckland to complete our tour of the North Island.
