    The West Coast

    June 16, 2017 in New Zealand

    Leaving the warm north coast behind we drove down towards the Nelson lakes. The first Lake Rotaroa had snowy mountains behind and James became happier that we were finally seeing the real rugged NZ. As he took photos I was happier being the duck whisperer. They were so tame and would happily eat from your hand and allow a quick pet of their feathers.

    We stopped for the night in Punakaki where we were greated by the hostel owner and a kid goat on a lead. He'd found it lost on the road and unabke to figure out where it had come from had taken the task of raising it. Whilst cute now I wish him luck in a few months time when it will eat everything in site!

    Next morning we visited the Pancake rocks and due to rough weather saw the blow hole in action. Very scenic it makes a nice pit stop. The next largish twon along was Greymouth where we stopped in to Monteiths brewery. We took a tour where they actually took us round the back and luckily forbus it was brewing day. We looked on as the brewer was testing the concotion and saw the malt being poured away after. After pouring a taster we sat down and enjoyed a few more. Their light ales were really refreshing! Wary of NZ drink drive limit we had lunch here before continuing the drive south to glacier land!

    Stop 2: Punakaiki - Pancake Rocks

    November 22, 2017 in New Zealand

    Gegen späten Nachmittag sind wir an den Pancake Rocks angekommen. Um die Felsen genau sehen zu können mussten wir ca 15 Minuten laufen. Die Felsen heißen so, weil sie aussehen, als würden ganz viele Eierkuchen übereinander liegen. Es war ganz cool zu sehen, aber man konnte sich dort auch nicht ewig aufhalten. Eigentlich wollten wir dort übernachten, aber wir haben dort kein gutes Plätzchen gefunden und dann sind wir weiter in die nächste größere Stadt Greymouth. Af dem Weg nach Greymouth haben wir uns noch den Sonnenuntergang angeschaut.Read more

    Greymouth

    February 23, 2017 in New Zealand

    Tired of the driving we stopped for a night in Greymouth, spending ourselves a private hostel room and watching the waves rolling into the river coming out of the town.

    Greymouth - el lejano oeste de NZ

    May 16, 2013 in New Zealand

    Un pueblito sobre la costa del Mar de Tasmania, que como dije en el anterior post (Arthur's Pass), no le veo mucho atractivo turístico; es tranquilo, parece un lugar del lejano oeste....quizás es un buen lugar donde descansar y comer algo si sos mochilero o si venís manejando hace rato y tenés que parar. Descansás en Greymouth y seguis camino. Me quedé a dormir en el Drake Backpacker's Hostel, un lugar común y corriente que por suerte al ser baja temporada no estaba lleno de gente ruidosa. (:-)) Van algunas fotos de detalles de este pueblito dormido....incluyendo un enorme pedazo de jade, piedra preciosa que abunda en la zona. De ahí partí hacia Franz Josef, parando brevemente en Hokitika durante el trayecto.Read more
