    רוטברן/2

    February 18, 2017 in New Zealand

    הרוטברן הוא עוד טרק ידוע בניו זילנד. ככזה, הוא נפלא ועמוס באנשים.
    לא הצלחנו לתפוס לו מקום, ואחרי בחינה מעמיקה החלטנו שזה רק לטובה- במקום לעשות את כולו, נעשה רק חצי ונספיק לראות מלא נוף.
    הצלחנו לעלות לפסגה ולרדת ביום אחד (היינו דיי מרוצות מעצמנו), והנופים היפים לפניכם 😄

    Day 82: We never see enough here

    October 10, 2016 in New Zealand

    From Glenorchy we went up north to see as much as we could within the given time and diesel 😇. We needed to return the camper empty to get more out of our return deal. From Glenorchy up, the road actually went to small and rough to drive it relaxed with our home so we turned around after 45 minutes. It never ends anyway😉. Back to Queenstown again and in Frankton we rented some Kayaks, the original plan was to kayak to Kawarau bridge but this takes all day and is way to rough to do on your own. Also the river appeared to be commercial and not allowed to do solo, I wouldn't anyway not just because he said we would drown 😆. So we paddled the lake Wakatipu and had a lot of fun on it. First against wind and current is always a smart start, I managed to see the whole Queenstown Harbor but the waves where way to much for comfort, so from here I paddled back to Mariska who gained some distance on her way back. We surfed some parts on the waves so the journey back took us a lot less time. The playfullness in the beginning turned in to focus to get back because energy levels were low haha. We made it without tumbling, but with wet legs and bottoms. The waves came over our kayak so we had no change to stay dry😉.
    After this we had to rest and were thankfull for the great day here and spend some time in beautifull Queenstown. We ate at Flame at the harbor and went back to the Camper and drove it to Frankton to Lower Shotover Riverside site😉 for free. We had one more thing to do with our mobile Home but I will add that tomorrow since that's more appropriate. South Island New Zealand, good night.

    Isengard

    December 20, 2016 in New Zealand

    Hinter Glenorchy eine Schotterstraße mit einigen Flussüberquerungen entlang kommt man nach Isengard. Die letzte Furt konnten wir mit meinem Auto nicht mehr überqueren und sind den Rest gelaufen. Wenn man aus dem Wald heraus tritt sieht es wirklich so aus, als wäre man in der Umgebung um Isengard. (Nur das der Turm ja nicht da ist, da er nur animiert ist) 😅
    Auch das Bergpanorama war wieder wundervoll!Read more

    Isengard

    December 6, 2016 in New Zealand

    Für alle denen Isengard nichts sagt, Isengard gibt es nicht wirklich. Es ist nur ein Drehort von Herr der Ringe. Ich war mittlerweile froh, dass ich die Filme gesehen hab, denn ansonsten hätte ich damit genau so viel Bezug gehabt wie manch ein anderer der diesen Film nie gesehen hat. Wir fuhren also Richtung Glenorchy. Glenorchy nennt man hier auch „The Gate to Paradise“. Denn ein paar Kilometer hinter Glenorchy liegt wirklich ein Örtchen das Paradise heißt. Bis dahin sind wir aber nicht gefahren, wir blieben bei Isengard stehen und konnten definitiv einen Vergleich feststellen.Read more
