New Zealand: Day 23: Hamilton - Bridal Veil Falls - Port WaikatoThe weather was still rainy and that is not very motivating, especially when you travel on a motorbike. Still, I had to move on from Kaimai Mamaku Forrest Park, where I spent the night, through some small cities below the clouds, to Hamilton, where I stopped by the Hamilton Gardens.

|Much more of these can be found in New Zealand than I expected|
|Will it rain, or not, go left, go right,... Many stupid questions in my head, still, I rode on|

I continued towards west to Bridal Veil Falls, a plunge waterfall located along the Pakoka River in the Waikato area. The waterfall is 55 metres high, and has over time caused the formation of a large pool at the base of the waterfall.
Track towards the falls was very nice

|Some roads just become gravel roads, but it's worth it|
|The best visibility was probably like this today|
|After all the bumps on the gravel road my mirror just broke and some nasty red fluid came out. Ebay, here we come.|
