This day we were heading to Rotorua and would be a busy day. First a stop at Hobbiton and after that an overnight stay with the Maori folks in Tamaki Village.
I think Hobbiton was cool, but not super cool. We got a guided tour through the Hobbiton film set and a beer at dragons in. The little hobbit houses were so cute! A bought pretty many expensive souvenirs too.
When we got to Tamaki village we first had to pick out a chef, which had to be a male, so it wasn't me :p. The Maori people are one of the most friendly folks that I have met. We got to play with sticks, throwing the stick to the person to your right, but at the same time catch the stick coming at you. It went well, but in the end we were supposed to throw the stick not to the first person beside you but the second and that was tricky. The sticks went everywhere :) but it was a funny game. We also learnt to do some weaving from a plant using a seashell. The Maori people did performance for us showing their warrior dance - Haka :). Our chef had also to get accepted and we needed to accept their gift before we were accepted. We got dinner cooked Maori style and it was so tasty :). The bed was also awesome and we all slept like babies :)
Kia ora Maori people for a great experience!
