Continuing on from my previous blog post I bring you more lovely scenery and food from my North Island road trip.
On our way to Gisborne we passed by the volcano known as White Island. Despite being one of the world’s most accessible active volcanos, it wasn’t doing anything particularly exciting as we passed by.
Upon reaching Gisborne we opted for a Thai meal for dinner at Just Thai.
Here we discovered Mata Feijoa Beer. Feijoa is a very popular fruit in New Zealand and you can find all manner of feijoa flavoured foodstuffs from feijoa vodka to feijoa chocolate.
The beer was light and refreshing with some very subtle hints of feijoa.
Moving onto the food… it was mostly good. Simple and tasty. A few misses but mostly hits. We were happy and that’s the main thing.
