Today was completely dedicated to the topic ‘Geothermal’.
First we explored the Whakarewarewa Geothermal Valley.
A easy walk through a breathtaking landscape with various hot pools and craters.
The color range of the craters, landscape etc was amazing.
Afterwards we headed to the Thermal Wonderland ‘Wai-O-Tapu’ to explore some more unique and spectacular geothermal elements…
Also here we walked through the area and saw some more astonishing color ranges.
From green, yellow, orange, blue, grey, … all colors were present.
Also always present was the sulphur odor… 🙈
But after a while you get used to it 😁 … and it is truly worth it to see this great places 👍🏼
As the final, we also had a short swim in a hot/cold stream near the ‘Wai-O-Tapu’ … which was a great experience … also the light sulphur smell of the skin was … unique 🙈 luckily it did not last for long 😁
It was a fantastic day 😁 therefore thanks also to Sofia which accompanied me on this day trip 😁
