Adventures in Flying by the Seat of my Pants Conquering Aotearoa One Day at a Time

What happens in Roto Vegas stays here

NEW ZEALAND | Tuesday, 22 March 2011 | Views [282]

So I've made a mid-year resolution: I am giving up all tourist attractions and tourist traps. When I went to Waitomo Cave, I felt that that yes, it's beautiful, but very expensive, contrived and the experience is limited. It's all geared towards the gift shop and, that's really somehing I have mo interest in. In passing through Rotorua, I had hoped that the local Maori culture and geothermal activity would somehow feel authentic even if there are tons of tourists and is pricey. Instead, it all feels very phoney and boring and I really can't wait to leave.
