    May 1, 2017 in New Zealand

    Oh that was a shaky night. I imagined Romeo and me sliding in the sea or a wave would drag us in the water, just two of those nice little scenarios that pop in your head when you're alone in a storm. Luckily I slept very well and woke up only once. So I think we're good now. Ready for our journey together. I headed to the lighthouse Nr. 1 after breakfast with the first of many rainbows. The gravel road from last night was not less scary to drive in daylight... There I met Tom, a English guy on holiday, he worked in summer up at Coromandel and is driving down to Wanaka for the winter ski season. We had a very interesting conversation about Brexit and co. so it was quite late when I left Cape Palliser. After a beautiful drive through green hills with those warm autumn colors I arrived in Castlepoint where the second lighthouse was. I checked in and went for a walk, again, incredible lighting and rainbows. And a 15min intense shower where I met a Katie and Mark with their four year old son Jago and their friend Dan. We had a nice chat and they invited me to their cottage for warming up since the temperature would drop to zero tonight. So after diner I took one of my last Swiss chocolate and got there. It was a night to remember with lot's of laughter, good conversation and me trying to teach them how to play Jass, a Swiss card game.Read more

    Castlepoint ist bis jetzt auf jeden Fall einer meiner Lieblingsorte. Schon nachdem wir Samstagabend angekommen sind, haben wir beschlossen den ganzen Sonntag hier zu verbringen. Wir sind zunächst zum Leuchtturm und dann auf der anderen Seite auf einen Felsvorsprung gewandert, auf dem wir dann gesessen haben bis die Sonne untergegangen ist. Durch den Regen der immer mal wieder kam, sind wir zwar nass geworden, hatten aber auch einen Regenbogen direkt über dem Meer. 🌈Read more

    Ein drittes und höchstwahrscheinlich letztes Mal für meine Reise, bin ich zum Castlepoint gefahren. Dieser Ort ist einfach unvergleichlich schön und wird für immer mein Lieblingsplatz in Neuseeland sein. ❤

    Castlepoint (2)

    October 25, 2017 in New Zealand

    Da wir ja jetzt quasi eine Woche extra auf der Nordinsel haben, dachten wir uns, wir fahren einfach nochmal zum Castlepoint, was eine sehr sehr gute Entscheidung war. Frühs haben wir uns den Sonnenaufgang angeschaut und später bin ich noch mit zwei Texanern in eine Höhle gegangen, von der ich vorher gar nichts wusste. Die Höhle war echt traumhaft und ich hab jede Menge Robben auf dem Weg dahin gesehen. 😌Read more

    Delivery Bay at Castle Point

    December 8, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Today was a beachday. Totally chillout. I actually only wanted do to a short stop over at Castle Point, but how life works, I liked this place so much, that I decided to stay the rest of the day. Chillin at the beach, visit the lighthouse and go for a swim. I relaxed so hard, that I'm sunburned over my hole body. The cold water felt so good at my skin. I didn't need a towel. 😂
    Locals come here for drifting donuts or fishing. 🎣 Swimming too of corse. 🌊
    Now I know why everybody say that's like paradise. 🌴
    At the Castle Point Beach were surfers, but the wave tubes wasn't as good as the last days. 🏄

    February 19, 2015 in New Zealand

    V poledne jsme byly s plenim hotovi. Skvela prilezitost vyrazit zase na chvilku ven (jako kdybychom venku nebyly vlastne porad ;-)). Z pohodove prochazky k majaku a na okolni 2,5 milionu stare (takze velmi mlade) skaly s milionem "zabudovanych" muslicek se nakonec vinou nekolika okolnosti stalo docela dobrodruzne odpoledne :-).
    1. Abychom zdolaly skalni vybezek (na jehoz zacatku se vyjimala cerna mramorova deska na pamatku zde utonuvsich a zranenych) jsme si musely radne zkalkulovat prilivove vlny a ve vhodny okamzit skocit.
    2. Po nezdarenem pokusu dojit na konec vybezku z bodu c. 1 jsme zvolily protilehlou skalu, na kterou jsme vysplhaly a vyfotily se na utesu v poryvech vetru (bylo vedro, tak aspon troska osvezeni, a co by clovek pro snimecek neudelal, ze?).
    3. Kdyz jsme se vracely na plaz, na ktere jsme bedlive sledovaly nase auticko versus postupujici priliv, zahlidly jsme lachtana! Bezely jsme ze schodu dolu, aby nam nedejboze neuplaval (coz, jak jsme pozdeji z jeho linych pohybu usoudily, rozhodne nemel v umyslu), a pritom skoro slaply na jeho kamose, co na nas vyhruzne vycenil zoubky a hlasite zavrcel :-/.
    4. No a ve finale se nam podarilo s nasi milou Toyotkou zaseknout se hluboko v pisku. Nastesti jel zrovna kolem mily kiwi tatka, co vyvezl synka s kamosem surfovat, tak nas se svoji 4kolkou vytahl - ta nase potvora zatracena tezka mu pri tom jeste roztrhla tazne lano :-(.
    Zkratka den plny zazitku ;-).
