    December 20, 2017 in New Zealand

    Neues Lager. Heute über offenem Feuer gekocht. Kartoffeln, Chiabata mit Käse und Baked Beans. Perfekt geworden. Da ist der Männerinstinkt durchgekommen.
    Einen Staudamm haben spontan in der NACHT auch noch gebaut...was man eben halt so macht wenn man sich am Bach Zähne putzen geht ^^

    February 7, 2017 in New Zealand

    Nach Wanaka besuchten wir den grossen Bruder - Queenstown, selbst ernannte Adventure City von Neuseeland. Und es ist nicht übertrieben. Alles was mit Geschwindigkeit, Fallen, Höhe, Fliehkräfte und Adrenalin zu tun hat, kann man hier betreiben. Dementsprechend hörten wir da und dort Schreie und Jauchzer.
    Wir entschieden uns mangels Zeit und Geld für die "langweilige" Variante des Wanderns.
    Kurz auf den Hausberg hochgekraxelt und wir genossen die atemberaubende Aussicht über Queenstown und den Lake Wakatipu.
    Anschliessend fuhren wir über Te Anau in Richtung Milford Sound. Der heutige Campingplatz lag auf einer Waldlichtung neben dem Lake Gunn.

    Cascade Creek, New Zealand

    May 16, 2016 in New Zealand

    The rain is unrelenting. All night long the campervan shook in the wind as the thunder cracked and the sky lit up with lightning. We heard there were winds clocked up to 150km/hr in the area. We watched, comfy and dry in our van, as someone set up their tent in the pouring rain for a wet night. The morning brought much of the same. Not sure what to do with ourselves, we braved the elements for a short 3 hour day hike up to Key Summit. We were covered head to toe in waterproof clothes and remained dry for the most part. The trail was a well-groomed gravel track that took us to the first hut on the Routeburn track, one of the New Zealand’s Great Walks. Unfortunately, we couldn’t see anything with the low lying clouds. The walk became more exercise than anything else. After completing the hike, we headed on to Milford Sound for the night in hope of some good weather on the morrow. Milford Sound is supposed to be a spectacular place but in the current conditions you couldn’t see more than 50 feet. We settled in for another early night of TV and reading.Read more

    Journey to Milford Sound

    February 22 in New Zealand

    We then continued on to Lake Monowai. We took a dirt road down to the lake and then walk about half an hour on a native walk to one of the most amazing lakes. We both loved this lake, you could see into the crystal clear water with the mountains in the far background. We stayed here for a little admiring the view!! We then made our way to Milford sound. Ee decided that we would stay near Milford Sound and try our luck with a cruise tomorrow. The drive along Highway 94 took us several hours as we stopped quite a few times to take some photos. This drive was amazing!!! So many huge mountains and some even had snow still on them. We ended up stopping just before Lake Gunn in a camp site. The view was amazing here as well, we were in a vale with a river running through it. We cooked some potatoes again and ate the remaining chicken. We then watched the end of Miami Vice and then started watching the wedding crushers and went to sleep.Read more
