The beautiful Redwoods!!




These are the lovely people I went to Rotorua with! Tristan, Stephen, Keri, Pen and Me! :) 
The Redwoods were GORGEOUS!! I don't know if I have said this before but New Zealand is beautiful! Here are some pictures and video of the amazingly clear, blue and still water! It was so peaceful I loved it. Again...photos don't do justice. :)

BEAUTIFUL!!!! :) 


Tamaki Village!!






This was a Maori village that we went to! I seriously LOVE the Moari culture. This was on of the coolest things I have ever been too. Here is how they welcomed us to their village. The "chiefs" had to accept their peace offering in order for us to enter the village.

We got to learn a bunch of different moari games and saw how they weaved. Then they put on a show for all of us while they prepared out hungi which is the food they eat. It is a meal cooked underground. SOOO GOOD!! Best food! I can't even do justice what this experience was like, but it was a great way to end the trip!

Zorbing!

So I got really lazy towards the end of  being in New Zealand and have had a few technical difficulties but I wanted to highlight some things even though I am home now! One thing we did was did a day roadie to Rotorua. These next few posts will be about that trip :)


Zorbing!! haha Funniest thing I have ever done! Pretty much just got thrown into this giant ball with water in it then got pushed down the hill. Here is the video!
