    Armidale

    January 17, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    Weer langzaamaan in het meer bewoonde deel van NSW, doe ik een tour langs een kort (12jr) geleden gesloten goudmijn. De wegen en natuurpark worden nu op kosten van de delvers onderhouden en opgeknapt. Bij een volgende stop zie ik dat in het eerstvolgende stadje het grootste jaarlijkse Elvis festival gehouden wordt, dus de volgende dag het feestgedruis in. Na deze mensenmassa weer leuk de kleine dorpsweggetjes opgezocht, inclusief een bergweg die op een boerenerf lijkt te eindigen, maar verbaasde farmer zet t hek open, en ik kan weer verder.
    Nu beland in Armidale, een van de mooiere victoriaans bebouwde steden. De attractie voor mij is de gorge, met een hike naar beneden, 3 uur dalen, en weer 3 uur omhoog.

    Armidale

    November 10, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Mit unseren Verwandten haben wir eine kleine Sightseeingtour durch Armidale gemacht. Es ist erstaunlich wie groß alles hier ist, mir scheint die ganze Stadt besteht nur aus Häusern mit Garten. Ich hab noch keinen einzigen Wohnungskomplex gesehen.
    Der Garten meiner Verwandten ist perfekt um Tiere zu beobachten! Gerade eben konnte ich 10 Kängurus beobachten und tolle Fotos machen. Auch sieht man hier jede Menge für mich neuer Vögel, wie zB den king parrot.
    Was wirklich praktisch in Australien ist, ist, dass in den Supermärkten die KassiererInnen auch gleichzeitig gratis die gekauften Sachen für dich in Sackerl packen. Echt toller Service!
    Ansonsten entdecke ich in Australien jeden Tag neue besondere Tiere. Heute zB Heuschrecken, die einen unglaublichen Lärm machen wenn sie fliegen. Man erschreckt sich jedes Mal :)

    Von Yamba nach Armidale

    November 9, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 11 °C

    Wieder stand eine lange Autofahrt auf dem Programm. Am Weg von Yamba nach Armidale haben wir 2 Wasserfälle (in Ebor und Wollomombi) und 1 Regenwald (in Dorrigo) besucht.
    Besonders beeindruckend war Dorrigo! Man zahlt nur 2 Dollar Eintritt und sieht einen unglaublich schönen Regenwald. Kommt man dort vorbei sollte man unbedingt dorthin gehen! Die 2 Wasserfälle sind ohne Eintritt und ebenfalls sehenswert.
    Etwas hart ist der Wetterumschwung...
    Innerhalb von 2 Tagen bin ich von Meeresniveau mit 35 Grad auf 1100 m mit 15 Grad und nachts noch kälter gekommen. Es ist so richtig kalt!!! :(

    Armidale schaut sehr nett aus, bin allerdings bis jetzt nur einmal kurz durchgefahren. Meine Verwandten wohnen ca 15 km entfernt vom Stadtzentrum mitten im Nirgendwo auf einem riesigen Grundstück. Scheint sehr beliebt in Australien zu sein...nun, es gibt hier auch sehr viel Platz :)
    Heute durfte ich gleich 6 Kängurus zu meiner Liste hinzuzählen. Wobei ich denke, dass ein paar davon Wallabies waren.
    Hier in Armidale muss ich erst alles erkunden. Aber meine Verwandten haben eine extrem süße, flauschige und große Katze namens Maui (siehe Foto).

    Zum Abschluss gabs heut noch eine große Grillparty mit noch mehr Verwandtschaft.
    Vormittags haben wir noch einen kleinen Park mit den fürs Waldviertel typischen großen Granitsteinen besucht und alte Aborigines Malereien bewundert.

    Armidale

    January 5, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    3 nights at the Showground. Great place. We really enjoyed Armidale with its heritage buildings, churches, colleges and of course universities. Went on a 2.5 hour heritage bus tour run by the Visitor Centre which was fantastic. The Teachers College and University of New England were highlights. Very much cooler than the coast...11-25° Armidale is the highest city in Australia.Read more

    Armidale, our home away from home

    July 22, 2016 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 16 °C

    Home at last. 💕
    We had the first weekend to settle in. We got our own little house on the school ground which by the way is enormous.
    The school even has its own equestrian center as well as a junior school, a gym with a pool, four boarding houses and of course the senior school buildings. 💕
    I work in Transition which is a class of 3-5year olds.
    I love these kids and I love the concept of Transition. It is the perfect combination of learning and playing. We do everything from writing, reading, music, drawing, crafts, swimming, horse riding, gymnastics to excursions to the fire and police station.
    There is never a boring day in Transition. 💕
    We even decided to get a guinea pig. 💕
    Our school has lots of special days and events throughout the year. Since we arrived we had a Harry Potter night and we dressed up for book week as our favourite book character and also for French day. 💕
    The people here and especially the ones I work with are the most welcoming and kind people I could ever wish for. If there is something we need we just have to ask for it (we even got a new TV). 💕
    We are slowly getting used to all the colourful birds and the different landscape around here. A lot of the birds look like the ones we have in zoos (especially Rosellas).
    I also met my first Australian spider which nearly gave me a heart attack. Just google Hunstman Spider and you will know what I mean.
    Apparently they are completely harmless (yet terrifying) not like Magpies (birds) who are the personified devil. Fortunately they only really attack you during nesting season in spring but they can't be trusted all year around.

    Back home (Armidale)

    January 30, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    After 8 weeks of travelling, 4 flights and around 15.000km I arrived back home in Armidale.
    Those 8 weeks have been more than amazing. 💕
    I am truly thankful for all the magical things I got to see/do. and it really has been an adventure of a lifetime. 💕
    Thank you to everyone who made all of this possible for me. 💕

    Back home to Armidale for the last time

    June 12, 2017 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 8 °C

    After four amazing days in Sydney it was time to say goodbye. Goodbye to this extraordinary city which we visited so many times in the last year and if it was only as a stopover at the airport.
    We left heavy hearted because it will probably be quite some time (I do plan on coming back one day💕) before we will see Sydney again.
    Next week we will fly to Sydney but only to change planes and fly to Melbourne so that wasn't much of a help.
    Those last four days showed me a new side of Sydney (not quite as crowded as on New Years Eve and somehow more relaxed than usual) which I've come to love and I think I can say that Brisbane and Sydney are now equal at first place in my top Australian cities ranking. 💕
    It was not only our last time exploring Sydney, it was also our last time flying home to Armidale. The place we got to call home for the last year.
    I still can't believe how fast time has flown by and that we only have 8 days left (it is the 15th as I'm writing this) until we have to leave this place and all our friends here behind.
    Two days ago on Tuesday we had our farewell at the school assembly (one week early because the last week tends to get quite hectic).
    We were praised by the girls and got a goodbye card from the people we worked with and a NEGS sports bag with our names embroided on them as a gift (quite handy because I needed a second piece of luggage anyway and they really are beautiful). 💕
    Heather also said a few words about us and we gave a short thank you speech to the school and everyone we worked with. 💕
    It was one of the hardest things we had to do simply because it meant recalling all the wonderful friendships that have formed and all the amazing experiences we got to make with the knowledge that it will soon be over and we will have to leave.
    Anyway I'm immensely grateful for everything and everyone that has happened to me during this year and I'm so lucky to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard. 💕

    Blue Hole Picnic

    November 20, 2016 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Another fun trip with some of the boarders to the Blue Hole for a picnic and some swimming. 💕
    The weather was stunning and a lot of girls went for a swim while Sophie and I sat on the rocks and enjoyed the sun.
    When it was time to go back Soph decided to be a mermaid (involuntary) and went for a dip in the water. She very gracefully slipped and landed there but at least it was warm and it was definitely very funny. 💕

    Costumes, Cleaning and heaps of fun

    April 7, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Who would've thought cleaning and tidying up could be so much fun?
    The drama department finally found a key for one of their store rooms and of course that one looked like an absolute mess.
    One day before we left for the holidays we started cleaning and throwing things out because most of the things in there were ready for the bin (we even found mummified lemons).
    Some of the costumes were still wearable though and we had heaps of fun dressing up in all the crazy ways
    possible. And of course we took pictures of our favourite creations. 💕
