    Ou, this was a funny one. Its a cow paddock and yea, it is. Thats it. Driving a 12km gravelroad with all that stock in your way to a paddock and sleeping beneath cows and horses. 🐄 No fence. The stock can run around like it wants to and is just happy. 🐴 But it were difficult to get there, cause there were 2 sleeping cows in my way and didn't want to stand up. 😂Read more

    Frühstück am Strand

    March 6, 2017 in New Zealand ⋅

    Nach diesem spektakulären Sonnenaufgang gab es natürlich erst einmal Frühstück. Und wo könnte man das besser genießen als am Strand?
    Bei einem kleinen Spaziergang danach habe ich dann diese wunderschöne Muschel gefunden, die ich natürlich gleich fotografieren musste, wobei mir erst danach aufgefallen ist, dass durch das Wasser eine super Spiegelung aufgetreten ist. 😅😁Read more

    Fuel station

    December 10, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Yea, it happend again. My tank was half full as I started the was from Gisborne to Te Araroa. Maybe 20km before Te Araroa the tank lighted up. Whaat? That was only a 2h drive. Never mind, there's a fuel station. Haha, I thought, but it didn't worked. I didn't had traffic at all. But my app said there should be another one in this village. It was a campground, no fuel station. Bad i asked the owner of that campground where is the next petrol station. As he asked wich directiom, I answerd: "Anywhere, I need the closest.'' A 10min drive just over the hill should be the next one, but I couldn't find it. That village had a post station, a lotto station and 3 houses. No petrol. The next station, my app said, was 34km away. But I had to get there anyway, so I moved on. 50 to 70 km/h. 1h drive. Zitternd the whole time. Oh I was so aggressive. You can't imagine how I was am fluchen. 😈😂
    At the end I did it. I got to that station. And then..
    My credit card didn't work. Oh no. A man told me it don't accept european cards. WHAAT?? What the f*cking shit is that? I can pay EVERYWHERE with my credit card, at the whole world. That's the reason I have it. Why not? Oh. Still no traffic. I even couldn't call the AA if I wanted to. And then I expected I've got another card. It's the same german bank, but to try it wouldn't make the situation worse. And what the hell? It works! Can you imagine? 😂
    Crazy shit!
    Still don't getting it..

    East Cape

    January 9, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    The East Cape competes with the Northland as one of the best parts of NZ. It's remote, much of it untouched and has a huge amount of history. We went snorkelling with sharks (unintentionally), canoed to where Cook first landed in NZ (battling quite a large swell!), swam in the most beautiful waterfall I've ever seen and were the first people in the world to see the sunrise from the most easterly part of the country. I keep thinking I've seen the best of New Zealand and it keeps proving me wrong!Read more

    The East Cape

    February 22, 2017 in New Zealand ⋅

    Eigentlich hatte ich es überhaupt nicht geplant, zum East Cape zu fahren. Aber man kann sich es ja nicht entgehen lassen, den allerersten Sonnenaufgang zu sehen! 🌅

    Über das East Cape zu fahren war absolut genial!! Die Strecken entlang am Meer waren traumhaft und ich bin vom Staunen garnicht mehr losgekommen 😂
    Am Campingplatz in der Nähe vom Lighthouse hab ich mit Jens und Markus noch eine Runde Yoga gemacht. Meine Güte war das schön, mit Blick auf das Meer Yoga zu machen 😍
    Nachts haben wir noch lange den Sternenhimmel beobachtet und sogar eine Sternschnuppe gesehen 😍

    Am nächsten Morgen gings mega früh los, weil wir noch die 800 Stufen hoch bis zum Lighthouse vor uns hatten. Morgensport getan 💪 Völlig fertig sind wir oben angekommen und mussten auch nicht mehr lange auf den Sonnenaufgang warten. Es war einer der schönsten, die ich hiergesehen habe. Man war so weit oben und konnte über den ganzen Horizont schauen und wie die Wolken sich von Minute zu Minute verfärbt haben kann man nicht beschreiben! Bester Start in den Tag!

    Weiter gings über die Gravelroads nach Whakatane. Wir sind sogar durch einen Ort gefahren, der Hawai hieß 💪 Es hat sich super gelohnt, das East Cape zu machen. Das zeigt mal wieder, dass spontane Ideen die besten sind!
