- The glowworms at Waitomo. It's easy to become blase about it as a tourist destination, but it's famous for a reason.
- Thermal activity at Orakei Korako. It's between Taupo and Rotorua, but it's far enough from the main road to be off the tourist trail. You get a boat ride across the lake and explore the little valley at your own pace. Spectacular.
- Just being able to hang out with my family. My sisters and I don't see each other often, so this is a very special time for us.
OK, now I have to prepare for Kraftbomb tomorrow. I'll do a post about my frankie giveaway when I've got a copy of the magazine; needless to say, frankie doesn't seem to be big in Otorahonga.
