Rotorua weekend package up for grabs


Rotorua weekend package up for grabs

Arista of Rotorua, Mitai Maori Village and Raftabout are combining to give you an unbeatable and unique Rotorua experience in a not-to-be-missed Facebook competiion.

Arista will be giving away two nights’ luxury accommodation in a spacious Family Studio.

The ‘Family Studio’ unit is perfect for groups who like space, but also like the privacy of the sleeping area being away from the living area. This is great for young families where Mum and Dad want to put the children upstairs to bed and then relax in Arista Of Rotorua’s beautifully decorated lounge area.

Arista Of Rotorua is ideally located in Fenton St to take full advantage of the many exhilirating adventures that Rotorua has to offer. The units at Arista Of Rotorua are the largest of their kind in Rotorua and they offer spacious living with a self-contained private spa in each.

Mitai Maori Village offers you an authentic introduction to the Maori culture leaving you amazed and in awe. Witness warriors in traditional attire paddling in an ancient warrior canoe, view glow worms in their natural habitat and marvel at the sacred freshwater spring. View your traditionally cooked hangi meal being lifted from the ground. Be captivated by the displays of weaponry and combat, coupled with the grace and beauty of the poi dance. You’ll learn about our past, carvings and ta moko (tattoo art).

It’s not a great trip to Rotorua without white water rafting. Raftabout are giving a way an exciting ‘Kaituna Rafting trip’ for four people. Raftabout provides an awesome day out with white water rafting. You’ll get a buzz going over the highest commercially rafted waterfall while The Okere River (Kaituna) is one adventure you will never forget!

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.
