Rotorua. Thermal heating. Seriously people, I have no idea how much my power bill is (it's probably gone up) but when all the grief went out about the recession, I was paying $33 a fortnight and leaving windows open in winter because the house was warm enough.

Other reasons to love Rotorua include:

  • Summer - we have Blue Lake, Tarawera, and Okareka to swim in. All stunning and we are an hour away from the ocean.
  • Winter - snow just down the road.
  • Forests - Redwoods.

Rotorua is one bonny town!
