On August 13th, we drove from Hamilton to Waitomo, then on to Auckland.

First we went to Ruakuri Cave. Underground tour took about two hours, and I did it in a wheelchair propelled by the indefatigable [info]danjite. It was a peculiar thing, wonderful but also odd. Technically the cave was wheelchair accessible, but in practice that meant that the wheels were sometimes scraping limestone on both sides.

Then we visited the Glowworm Caves, which is a boat trip underground. Also cool and strange but difficult to photograph.

We did our best.

Then we had an open dinner in Auckland that night. Which was also a lot of fun.

Next, the wrap up of our trip.

And as usual, more at the Flickr set.

I did a very similar trip to NZ over the xmas/new year break this year. It's really nifty to see someone else's perspectives on the same areas I visited and enjoyed so recently. It looks like you had a fabulous trip. I suspect one would have to really work hard (or have uncommonly bad luck) to NOT have a fabulous trip when visiting places like this! So much cool stuff to visit, see and do!
