    Radek MacGyver

    August 28, 2015 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Nas problem rodinneho sedmimistneho vanu jsme vyresili vymontovanim sedacek, nalezenim skladky, kde se jich dalo zbavit a pak presunem do MitreMEGA (mistniho Bauhausu), ktery se stal nasim dalsim domovem na nekolik dni. Pod mym stavebnim dozorem, Radek posledni dny kreslil, meril, rezal, zatloukal, srouboval, nadaval a znovu a znovu jsme se vraceli do MM pro dalsi a dalsi naradi. V nize uvedenem fotoromanu se muzete sami presvedcit, jaky je ten Radek bourak! Za par hodin nam na koleni na parkovisti vyrobil luxusni apartma s vestavenymi skrinemi, jidelnim koutem a kuchynkou. Stale jeste nejsme vsak hotovi, jeste to bude potreba doladit...Read more

    Ferry-Fi Updates

    February 17, 2016 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    Hi everyone! We know our active blog-followers have been disappointed by the lack of updates lately, but we want you to know it's not because we don't love you :) We have spent the past few days traveling around New Zealand's north island in our campervan (which looks like an old VW bus, but has a futon, water tank, portable toilet, and a makeshift kitchen rigged up in the back). No wifi means no updates, so we're taking the opportunity to pass along a few notes on our travels from the comfort of the extremely large car ferry between the north and south islands. Here's some of what we've been up to lately:

    *We toured the famous glowworm caves in Waitomo, enjoying beautiful cavescapes and seeing the tens of thousands of bioluminescient green worm larvae which dot the dark cave ceilings

    *We went spelunking, floating on an underground river, over small waterfalls, and climbing through small cave tunnels in a way that made Nick realize he wasn't quite as claustrophobic as he once believed

    *We camped at a beautiful beachside overlook, atop sandstone cliffs and watched the stars. In the morning, we decided to clean off by swimming in the Tasman Sea, which was far warmer than either of us expected. We were alone, aside one sad lone surfer (there weren't any waves) and a couple horses.

    *We rented bikes and rode along the Whanganui river, past small homesteads, over rolling hills and alongside unique New Zealand flora, stopping only to marvel at the perfect, Shire-esque quiet of the riverbank, the hordes upon hordes of sheep, and the most emo horse either of us will ever see.

    Hope you've all enjoyed following along. We'll put up some pictures when we have better Internet. Talk to you from the south island!

    Lower Hutt

    February 27, 2015 in New Zealand ⋅ 🌙 15 °C

    Najit hostitele ve Wellingtonu je umeni. Poptavka evidentne prevysuje nabidku :-(. Donaldovi nastesti jeho domluveni couchsurferi odrekli, tak nas na posledni chvili vzal. Bohuzel mu odpoledne pri koseni travniku odlitl od sekacky kaminek, rozbil mu sklo u slunecnich bryli a vlitl az do oka. Tomu teda rikam pech :-(. Ubytoval nas mezi cestou z lowerhuttske a cestou do wellingtonske nemocnice a my ted mame cely jeho dum, co prave renovuje, samy pro sebe. Tak snad se s nasim hostitelem jeste nekdy potkame... :-/Read more
