Picture of the Day 13.01.2016
What a stinky day! And I mean literally stinky as in rotten eggs smell because of sulfur because of geothermal activity. Well the good news are you get used to the smell after a while, the bad news: I now probably smell just as terrible without even noticing it. But still visiting the Wai-O-Tapu was definitely a great decision. You feel almost like you are on another planet, everywhere you have geysers and hot-springs and mud-pool and steam and everything incredibly colorful. I took way too many pictures today but after all the big “Champagne Pool” is my absolute highlight with the orange corner around the green water and most importantly the steam. All that steam keeps constantly changing with the wind showing you different sections of the pool or sometimes emerging you completely. A great feeling of it weren’t for the smell. The day may sounds less action packed than the last ones but as I was walking around in the sun all day it was still pretty tiring, maybe I have some time to relax tomorrow.
