Last night I had to blow my nose around 30 times!! 😦 This night I only did it twice. Woohooooo, I am soon well!! 😀
Today we jumped out of bed and went to The Polynesian SPA. After breakfast, of course. OMG, what a lovely place. We chose the 5 pool alternative, de luxe, where towels and lockers were included. There were 4 pools, all with different temperature, 36, 38, 40 and 42 degrees C. The water in these pools are all from a specific spring, Rachel spring, I think it was. Very smooth water, the skin felt very soft after spending some time in those pools. And from all these pools you overlook the Rotorua lake, so very beautiful. The fifth pool was the Priest pool and it had water from another spring. That water should be good for rheumatism. There was also a cold pool and of course I had to jump into that one as well (it was actually not that cold, at least not to me, the cold pool at Kristiansborgsbadet in Västerås is colder, and that is 8 degrees, if I remember right). In the Preachers pool we met a girl from US. She was a nurse and 27 years old and she was on a 4 weeks trip in NZ and AU, just like us. We talked a lot, a really nice chat.
The morning was sunny and we had a great time in The Polynesian SPA. If you ever visit Rotorua, be sure to take some time and visit the SPA. It is well worth the time and the money.
At around 11.15 we went to pick up Jossan from the hospital. We came, as always, in the middle of a meal. This time it was lunch and they served meatloaf with mashed potatoes. Jörgen had a bite and went ecstatic. 😀 Jossan did not each much, just an apple. The stomach is not quit ready for a lot of food yet, I guess.
She changed her clothing from the hospital, purple kind of dress and back into her normal outfit. Strange, when you do a change like this you immediately go from sick to normal. The clothes do a lot, I guess. Rotorua hospital, I must say it has been a really great experience. They are so service minded, they have time for the patients, and you can ALWAYS get hold of a nurse. Yes, I liked it a lot. I felt like Jossan was in really, really good hands there.
Next thing was buying some screws and a screwdriver to fix the drawer that fell out in the van. It worked really well and the drawer is as good as new now! ☺ Then off to Countdown to get pancakes. Jossan has been having cravings for pancakes for some days now and luckily we found readymade glutenfree pancakes in the store, so we celebrated her leaving the hospital with a meal of pancakes, jam and whipped cream. Mmmmmm, yummie.
So, now we are back at the Rotorua Top 10 Holiday Park. This is our fourth night here, at the same camping.
Our plan was to go to Hobbiton Movie set tomorrow, but I think we will have to skip that. It will be too hard for Jossan, to move around that much. She walks of course but she takes it very slow since even though she is on painkillers, every fast or unplanned movement still hurts.
