Helen and I are in Rotorua tonight. We are about half way through our trip and feeling pretty tired. We spent Christmas Day at the Eskdale Mountain Bike Park outside of Napier. The last two days we were at Wairakei Forest Park, near Taupo. Tomorrow we head to Whakawarewa Forest park, also known as the "Mountain bikers Disney Land". We plan to spend the next two days exploring before working our way back home. On the way we plan to ride the "42nd traverse" which is one of the classic mountain bike rides in New Zealand.
We plan to be home for New Years eve, as Wellington is meant to have a pretty impressive fireworks display and party.
