- Since I’ve been asked several times now, this is the coolest thing we did in New Zealand ➡️ I knew as soon as we started planning our road trip that I wanted to see the glow worms near Rotorua, but ideally not in a crowded guided tour sorta way. I remembered seeing an old friend’s Instagram post a while back, describing a state park with a waterfall you could hike to to see the little guys on your own—you just had to get there before the park closed, hike, and wait for dark. I didn’t know if this was a sure (every night) thing or more of a gamble, but we decided to try. We drove the hour to the park, explored a bit, hiked to the waterfall and then hung out, waiting for the sun to set. Shortly after it did, the glow worms started to appear—first just a few, and then eventually tens of thousands, everywhere. (Last pic stolen from the internet, because mine don’t do it justice.) The hike back down was like walking through the night sky, surrounded by tiny, aqua-colored stars. It was magic. It was also proof that sometimes my @instagram addiction can be used for good 😏 BTW: While in the park we found graffiti that said “nice place for a bang” and, according to reddit, this park is also a popular place in which to dump a dead body—so hey, lots of reasons to check it out!

- White Island is a fascinating volcanic island that rises 321m above sea level and lies 48km off the east coast of the Bay of Plenty. 🌋
The Island has built up over the last 150,000 years and continues to grow today as it belches mud and emits steam on a constant basis.
In the early 1900's people tried to utilise this incredibly desolate landscape as a sulphur mine before later abandoning the attempt due to a mining disaster that saw 10 men killed in a landslide thanks to the unstable conditions on the island.
Nowadays the island is only used as a tourist attraction and for scientific research purposes, there area number of boat and helicopter tours that visit the island on a daily basis, most departing from the city of Whakatane. 🚁
