    Dunedin, New Zealand

    December 6, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    We left the hippie campsite and headed for Dunedin where we started to have a look around. It had a lot of tall buildings. We went to a veggie cafe to eat and then went to look at the famous railway station. It was quite remarkable for a station. Then, after that, we went to see the Cadbury chocolate factory (from the outside!). It was really cool. After a long day we went to another campsite next to a lovely beach.Read more

    Wild beaches

    December 6, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ ☁️ 9 °C

    On Thursday we stayed at a campsite for the night. You wouldn't call it a proper campsite. I think you would call it more of a hippie campsite. It was right next to a beach with choppy waters and flying sand. On the second day, after spending a night there, we went back to the beach and made a den out of sticks . It was also a really nice day, which made us very happy!Read more

    Campsite for the night

    December 5, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ ☁️ 12 °C

    After staying in Queenstown, we continued our journey and travelled to a campsite near Dunedin. It was right next to a beach. In the evening, Jonah and Dad went down to the beach and came back telling us that they had made something on the beach. It was an alien with seaweed as hair! The next morning we went to the beach again and made a den. It was so cool!Read more

    Butcher's Dam

    December 5, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ ☁️ 11 °C

    We stopped here for a picnic on the way to our next campsite. Then mum and dad suggested to go up Flat Top Hill, next to Butcher's Dam. It was quite nice really, but also quite hard getting to the top.

    Tiki trail walk

    December 4, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    At Queenstown our campsite was right next to a mountain. We climbed it - but there was a deal we had with our parents. The deal was that if we got to the top and back down again, without whingeing, we would get 25 NZ dollars, the cost of a return ticket on the gondola! We got to the top, which made my heart beat at 100 miles per hour. Going down made my knees wobble, but it was so much fun.Read more

    Parasailing and tree-climbing

    December 4, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    In Queenstown we had lots of choices of activities. We chose to do parasailing and it was so cool. We went onto a boat where we got our harnesses on. Then they attached us to the parachute and the boat went really quick. We were lifted up into the air. We saw loads of views and the parachute kept bobbing up and down. Then we landed and got to the playground. There was a big tree which had fallen over and we decided to climb it. It was so much fun.Read more

    Queenstown

    December 3, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    We travelled in our van to Queenstown. We stayed in a campsite where there were loads of people. It was quite strict because there was a lock on the toilet door, to which you had to enter a password. There are mountains in Queenstown called the Remarkables. It is quite remarkable!

    Lake Tekapo, Church of the Good Shepherd

    December 2, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    We travelled to Lake Tekapo where there was the most beautiful scene to have a picnic. There was a clear lake next to where we were eating and an island in the middle of it. After having food we started our journey to the campsite. On the way there, we passed a church called the Church of the Good Shepherd. The views out of the window were amazing.Read more

    Overnight camping with views of Mt Cook

    December 2, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    After looking at Lake Tekapo we went to a campsite next to a lake with lots of mountains surrounding it, one of which is called Mount Cook. We only stayed there for one night. It was really nice.

  • Day35

    "Schnecke" and Waihi Gorge

    December 1, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ ☁️ 15 °C

    Schnecke is snail in German. We called the van we rented this because it is quite slow. On our first night we went to a place called Waihi Gorge . It had lots of space and we had most of the campsite to ourselves. There was also a river flowing through the campsite.
