[travel|photos] New Zealand travelog recap – Ruakuri Cave and Waitomo Glowworm Caves

On August 13th, we drove from Hamilton to Waitomo, then on to Auckland.

First we went to Ruakuri Cave. Underground tour took about two hours, and I did it in a wheelchair propelled by the indefatigable [info]danjite. It was a peculiar thing, wonderful but also odd. Technically the cave was wheelchair accessible, but in practice that meant that the wheels were sometimes scraping limestone on both sides.

Then we visited the Glowworm Caves, which is a boat trip underground. Also cool and strange but difficult to photograph.

We did our best.

Then we had an open dinner in Auckland that night. Which was also a lot of fun.
