Go yellow!

(ohne Bilder - s. Eintrag vom 18.11.) Nachdem wir (bzw. Milo) schon um 7 Uhr topfit Waren, haben wir die letzten Sachen gepackt und sind zum Bus. Das erste Mal seit Frankfurt Flughafen, dass wir alles transportieren mussten: jeder einen großen Rucksack, einer den Rollkoffer mit Laptoptasche,...

Inselhopping

Heute durften wir beim Einkaufen die neuseeländischen Stapelkünste bewundern. Danach hieß es auch schon "Auf zur Fähre!" und Warten in der Reihe mit den Campern. Milo nutzt die Zeit, um schonmal den Fahrerstand zu erkunden. Auf der Fähre stehen die Wohnmobile dicht an dicht,...

What a shitty day

After such a gorgeous day yesterday we woke up with rain and lots of it. Hoping it would clear a bit we waited at the campsite sitting in the car but soon gave up and drove to Picton in search of a warm place to sit for a while supping on coffee. Then, after drinking way too much coffee...

Robbies

Als wir uns gerade beeilen mussten, um in Picton noch die Faehre nach Wellington zu kriegen, da stand auf einmal am Strassenrand ein 'Vorsicht - Seehunde' - Schild. Und die dazu gehoerenden Robben lagen dann auch auf der anderen Seite direkt am Ufer neben der Strasse. So ein suesser kleiner,...

a train! not a bus! wow

A 5am start for my 6am shuttle bus to my 7am Tranzcoastal train to Picton this morning. Still, the train makes a wonderful change from the bus - being able to get up and walk around, and even having a spare seat next to me to stretch out on is bliss. Plus, I'm heading back to the Juggler's...

hippies!

Today I took a hike up to Essons (?) valley to Harbour View - about 40mins fairly steep uphill in the heat - but the view of the harbour, and, on the way up, of the valley and the mountains/large hills were fantastic. On the way down the track meandered through cool green bush to the streets of...

Kayaks, jellyfish and stingrays

After a lazy day involving a short hike to Bob's Bay off Picton Harbour, and lots of chilling out and juggling practice around the Juggler's Rest, I had my kayaking trip about the Queen Charlotte Sound on Sunday. It's a beautiful day, sunny and calm, with no wind at all until early afternoon,...

the best hostel in NZ?

An energetic start to today - after being told the wrong pick-up point for my bus, I stood and watched the coach drive past on the opposite side of the road, pulling up at a hostel quite a distance down the street. Cue me running madly after it, heavy rucksack banging on my back, smaller...

A 'short' interlude

Day - 24 Friday 15th May 2009 A dramatic night with heavy rain and the occasional flash of lightning and rumbles of thunder over our beachside campsite at Pohara Beach (www.poharabeach.com) in South Island's lovely Golden Bay. This view over the bay is just a few metres away from where we...

Repetition

Hmm, these blog entries are starting to get a bit repetitive. Travel somewhere, admire scenery via foot/bike/kayak, move on. I guess that's the thing with NZ - beautiful country though it is, there's not a great deal beyond that. And because I've been doing the south island on my own, I haven't...
