Karangahake Scenic Reserve and Luging – Rotorua, New Zealand (Day 6)

A long day on the bus today. We stopped at the Karangahake Scenic Reserve and had a nice hike through an old gold mining area which included tunnels and swing bridges. Should have brought a flashlight.

When we got to the hostel we noticed that we had been blessed with a swimming pool that was actually a massive hot tub. After doing some unpacking we played some water basketball.

Around 3 pm we went luging. Definitely get in some luging if you have the opportunity.

After getting back to town, we searched for some cheap grub and ended up settling for the bar next to the hostel, Lava Bar. For a hostel bar, the selection and quality was pretty good. Wasn’t feeling it at dinner, but 7 dollar pitchers got the night going. The All Blacks played Australia and Chris won an All Blacks jersey.

New Zealand barely won and the party went way into the morning.
