New Zealand: Rotorua & Wellington

 Caper's Cafe

If you stay at the YHA Rotorua, you'll get not only a clean and pleasantly family-friendly environment  in which to rest your weary head and feet, but also a drinks voucher at the local pub and a coffee voucher at a popular Rotorua joint, Capers Cafe.

Gourmet Offerings

Here it was my Mum and I had our aromatic cuppas as we sat by the window and watched the world, or the town, go by. We weren't hungry at the time, but if you should find yourself in the neighborhood I highly recommend you give this place a shot, if my shots above isn't enough, the mad lunchtime crowd will gladly attest to the quality of food they offer here.

Dinner Burrito

 The other perk about staying at the YHA, a sandwich press! I made my first burrito there, had it before, not sure Mum had before then. She liked it. Gave it 2 thumbs up. ;)

Welly Feed

Our last port of call in the South Island was Wellington, and wherever our paths take us (in NZ, at least) steak follows. Here you have thick cut, succulent and juicy medium rare steaks with 2 salads: pasta and Greek, and 2 soups: cream of mushroom and a clear veg broth. Have Mum, will travel and be fed well.
