|Champagne Pools, Wai-O-Tapu Rotorua, July 2009|
This is one of my favourite shots of the champagne pools. I ended up at Wai-O-Tapu twice in the same week during my first visit to Rotorua while backpacking solo through the North Island! The first time, I went on a guided tour with some girls from my hostel, the second time some Irish friends I’d made in Paihia were heading out to “Green Lakes” in their campervan and asked if I wanted to tag along. The weather was different both days so the photos turned out completely different, making both trips worth it.
