25 Feb NZTL 2022 Mount Awesome, Smelly Rotorua and THE CURSE
Drew’s curse continues – the waves have been either flat or extremely small. I keep reminding him, when he gets depressed over it, that this a family vacation and that surf is only a bonus. But nothing I say makes it any easier for him…
We’ve renamed Mount Manganui as MOUNT AWESOME, because it’s the most awesome town we’ve been to. It’s a friendly little surf town nestled around the small mount. Completely picturesque, and with loads of delicious cafes, we could live here easily.
After surfing small spunk waves in Mount Awesome, it was off to Rotorua, the geothermal wonder-land. You can smell Rotorua before you even arrive – that awful rotten egg smell coming from the sulphurous pools of bubbling, boiling mud. All over town, even in backyards, there are pools of boiling water and mud. Quite a site to see!
