    Mount Cook

    May 6, 2017 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Definitely one of the most beautiful places in New Zealand. We hitchhiked through the mountains from Twizel to a little city called Aoraki situated at the foot of Mount Cook. Here it's al about hiking. The Meuller hut track brought us to a hight of 1800m, a track with an elevation gain of 1000m and 2200 steps. This is the most exhausting and at the same time the most rewarding track I did so far.Read more

    Queenstown

    May 4, 2017 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 9 °C

    Queenstown, aka 'the party city' of New Zealand is an expensive city located next to lake Watakipu and surrounded by mountains with a population consisting out of 1 kiwi on 15 inhabitants. Lots of partying, eating fergburgers (truly the best) and hot cookies is how I spent my time here.

    Deep south

    May 2, 2017 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Landscape is changing again while we're going to the most southern point of New Zealand. We drive and walk through the rain forest to visit a beautiful waterfall. Going through the Catlins was all about spotting wildlife. We where lucky to see the yellow eyed penguins beside the sea-lions and the little Hector's dolphins. This is definitely a magical birthday that ended in Dunedin with a good glass of wine and some Chinese food.Read more

    Fiordland

    April 30, 2017 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Milford sound, also known as the valley of hundred waterfalls, is one of many fiords in Fiordland. This breathtaking place is declared as a world heritage site with cliffs up to 1200 m rising out of the dark water. I'm staying here for two days with the purpose to dive. Due to a natural phenomenon called 'deep water emergence,' deep-water animals can be seen in the shallow waters what makes it an unique place to dive. Unfortunately it was cancelled, but I got a free boat ride through Milford Sound instead.Read more

    Autumn arrived in Wanaka, this cozy little town and lake are surrounded with yellow coloured trees and high mountain tops. I left this place with very sore legs after doing the Roys peak track, a 22 km long walk with an elevationgrade of 1230m.

    Abel tasman national park

    April 17, 2017 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    This feels like the real New Zealand, intense green mountains draw off the coastline. Kayaking on the sea with lots of seals swimming around me. This is a place where I chill out on the beach and do some hikes after a busy week with the kiwi bus.
