The final part of my week long birthday trip to New Zealand ended at a stay in the Blossom Cottage at Rotorua.
Wow, what a wonderful place to stay. The views around the area were fantastic and as we pulled up to the cottage we saw all kinds of wildlife around us from Cows to Donkeys and more. Greeting us upon arrival were some freshly baked brownies which were absolutely fantastic. The cottage itself is very quaint, and as an Englishman, reminded me a lot of my home country. The bed, well I have to say was possibly one of the most comfy beds I've ever had the pleasure to sleep in, I really must find out what brand of sheets they were, I have never felt anything so soft and smooth.
In the morning I popped out to grab some eggs for our breakfast, a new experience for me as dozens of chickens surrounded my legs in search of food. I felt a bit bad but the eggs tasted delicious so that soon passed.
In the evening of my birthday, we sat in the hot tub sipping on champagne and gazing up at the beautiful milky way above us. A fantastic way to see in a new year of age.
Visiting the Polynesian Spa, staying in this cottage, the beautiful sites of the countryside. I can't remember a time feeling so content and relaxed in all my 31 years.
