    Eglinton Valley and Mirror Lakes

    January 14 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    The first two pictures are from the Eglinton Valley and the last pictures from the Mirror Lakes. They should be best to see in the morning because the light is perfect then I heard. So I will Stopp here again, maybe tomorrow morning or on Thursday.

    From here it was only two kilometers to my campground for the next 2 nights, Knobs Flat!

    A nice little place with a lot of birds around.

    I was pretty tired when I came here, so I went for a shower first. Had to wait a while, here are only two showers for all campers so there where already a few people waiting. We used the time to talk about what we did the day and complain about the Sandflys that are pretty nasty here.
    Horrible creatures! 🤬

    After a nice shower, I was just cooking some pasta fast and talked with some of the other campers.
    It’s many people from the UK here tonight.
    So we had a nice chat and after that, I went straight to bed.

    That was the time when I heard some Keas flying around the campground, but I was too tired to get up and try to see them. That I will do tomorrow!

    27th night - Way to Milford Sound

    March 15, 2019 in New Zealand ⋅ 🌧 15 °C

    Am Freitag fuhren wir nach dem Frühstück in Richtung Te Anau.
    Auf unserem Weg lag der Kepler Track. Dies ist wohl der bekannteste Wanderweg in Neuseeland, für den man mehrere Tag benötigt. Wir gingen ein Bisschen wandern und ich genoss die Natur und die Stille des Waldes sehr.

    Anschließend kamen wir in Te Anau an und besichtigten einen Park, der auf Campermate angepriesen wurde. Dort fand eine Hochzeit am See statt und wir gingen nur kurz spazieren, da wir noch einkaufen mussten.

    Unser Campingplatz war ein Hauch von nichts. Für 13$ bekamen wir ein Plumpsklo! Sonst nichts. Aber es war ein toller Ausblick auf die Berge!

    Als wir ankamen, habe ich zuerst das Auto aufgeräumt, Pitch Perfekt gehört und dazu gesungen. Da es dort viele Sandfliegen gab, bin ich nun total zerstochen. So'ne Mistviecher!!!

    Am Abend gab es Reis und Gemüse zum Dinner und wir schauten PLL weiter.

    Drive to Milford Sound, Part 1

    March 5, 2017 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    The weather wasn't to pleasant, but still we got accompanied by some many full loads of busses, campers and others driving into that direction that almost hesitated to continue ourself.

    If Queenstown would be the most touristy city in New Zealand, then Milford Sound is definitely the most touristy nature area for NZ.Read more
