Day 68: Half way the world trip.September 26, 2016 in New Zealand
Holy shit 😆 if this is half of the time... so much more is coming. I am really amazed by how quick things appear to pass by and feel so long ago at the same time. The main reason for this blog was exactly because of this. I seriously have to think back for wat was 2 months ago but feels like a year ago at least. Moskou.... was that this year? Uzbekistan and Kazachstan feels like I was there a long time ago and that I rushed through it in days while it actually was almost 2 weeks. From Japan and Kuala Lumpur on I found that the social experience became more and more pleasant which results in not only memorable sights and adventures but also memorable people and the stories of their experiences. This means more information to process and remember what makes it feel to stretch the timeline from days into weeks and months. Australia was the start of a totally new way of travelling. I planned to backpack and didn't expect it to be such a social thing. The hostels really help, you meet young travellers and they are in for the same things as I am. Sightseeing, daring activities and party. The perfect mix and that's why it went by so quick but seemed so long ago. I loved every part of it.
Now back to New Zealand: We woke up in Levin or somewhere near it 😉, and moved to Wellington to catch the Ferry and go ASAP to the South Island. We tought going early would give us a change the same day but it had to be the next morning. Our 6,6m long Camper didn't fit today😕. No problem, camp in the middle of Wellington and find a supermarket to fill up our food supplies and some outdoor shops to gear up better for this rainy weather. A relaxing day but still a little tired from the tough hike yesterday. We had some things to celebrate including me being halfway but more to finishing off our North Island journey together with some more romance. The Italian Veni Vidi Vici was a perfect place to do this. We had a lovely time and slept even peacefuller. Be with peace and sleep well, I am ready for the next half 😆.Read more
