  • Day13

    Te Anou

    February 13, 2017 in New Zealand

    Vandaag een trip met de bus van Queenstown naar Milford Sound via Te Anou. In dit deel van Nieuw Zeeland regent het veel, zo ook vandaag. Daarom ook veel meren en watervallen gezien. De foto's geven een impressie van wat er onderweg naar Milford Sound te zien is.

  • Day2

    Glade House

    November 8, 2016 in New Zealand

    Milford track day 1

    A 2.5 hour bus ride from Queenstown to Te Anau, where we had lunch and another 30 min in the bus, where we caught a boat at Te Anau Downs to the Head of Lake Te Anau where the track starts.

    It was only about 1 km walk to Glade House where we spent our first night.

    It rained from the moment we stepped on the boat, till we went to bed, the guides however said it was perseputation and not really rain ☔️ by Milford standards, apparently when it rains here, it pours.
    At this point I am so glad we took this option with hot water shower and a drying room for clothes.

    We went for a little guided nature walk of about 1.6km and learned quite a bit about the NZ bush. Interestingly NZ never had any mammals until man arrived. Originally only has birds and most of which was non flying birds. The Europeans brought rabbits 🐰 to hunt but could not hunt enough to keep up with the rabbits breeding, soon they had a pest on their hands. Then they brought other mammals that was known to eat rabbits, but found that these catches birds easier than rabbits so their plan failed & it created more issues. Today NZ is trying to kill as many of these mammals as possible to save the birds. Everywhere along the walking trail there are traps.

    A part from learning quite a bit we got truly wet on the nature walk, but even in wet conditions this place is gorgeous.

    Had a very nice dinner and a briefing on the walk for day 2 before heading to bed for a good 9 hours and 20 minutes of sleep 😴.

    Woke up once during the night because of the heavy rain, it sounded like there was a waterfall coming down on the roof of the hut. I don't think I have ever experienced heavy rain like this before.

    Die Inneren Werte zählen...oder?

    December 20, 2016 in New Zealand

    Unser Auto ist ein wenig dreckig geworden, bei den ganzen Aktivitäten die nur durch eine Gravelroad erreichbar waren 🙈

    Und da Neuseeländer sehr, sehr ungeduldige Fahrer sind und uns immer überholen, obwohl wir richtig fahren, haben wir unser Auto ein bisschen bemalt. Manchmal werden wir tatsächlich angelacht, sobald wir überholt werden 😂👌

    The beauty of nature

    December 20, 2016 in New Zealand

    Auf dem Weg zu den Milford Sounds und wieder zurück nach Queenstown haben wir auch ein paar Tage gecampt und einiges erlebt. Wir mussten die Zeit "totschlagen" bis wir am Dienstag unsere Bootstour machten und somit klapperten wir währenddessen noch ein paar schöne Orte ab. Hier sind die schönsten 6 Fotos der letzten 4 Tage 😍👌 🇳🇿
