2nd visit to NZ (check Rotorua; NZ when I was 6 months pregnant too)

Idea is to bring mom around

This guy is from Sydney too, lots of good humor :)

Etienne likes this museum coz they have kid center in every section of the exhibition with fake stimulation for children education.

This tram up the hill is scary mum ~~

Wellington Botanical Garden is way up the top of the town

The way down is not too bad


Failed to get Etienne attention on the helicopter

Off we go to Palliser Bay

It's a 6 hours return drive to nothingness

But the views are breathtaking

Dark sands

Lunch stop. Please note there are absolutely nothing here except for a van that sells burger in a small village 40mins to our destination so do come prepare if you are taking this road.

Our target in view

Can you see them?

What about now? This is a nursery

Can you see it now?

They could blend in well too when they dried themselves on the rocks. Don't get too close especially towards the nursery, the seals will start to bark frivolously & might attack.

Don't want to be bitten by them.

We have a wonderful video of the nursery. Unfortunately can't load it here to share.

I stop breathing for a while coz the seals do smells quite strong.

Palliser Bay - Home of the seals

Chris feels like on vacation
