[travel] Driving from Wellington to Rotorua, NZ, day nine

Yesterday we drove from Wellington to Rotorua. Long drive, but my GI was (mostly) cooperating. Among other things, we stopped in Bulls, NZ, where we saw this mural:

We also drove past Tongariro, which played the part of Mt. Doom in the Lord of the Rings movies:

And we visited the mud pools at Waiotapu:

Unfortunately for me, last night was a very difficult pass with my lower GI being painfully and dreadfully uncooperative. I feel pretty crummy today, though things are somewhat settled down. On the plus side, [info]the_child continues to have a great time.

    We missed our turn in Bulls and enjoyed a nice coastal drive to New Plymouth instead.
