    Westküste des Nordens

    February 14, 2020 in New Zealand ⋅ ☁️ 23 °C

    Um den Tane Mahuta, den ältesten bekannten Kauribaum Neuseelands zu sehen, geht es einmal von Ost nach West. Man geht davon aus, dass er rund 2000 Jahre alt ist. Mit über 50 Metern Höhe und 11 Metern Umfang wirkt er sehr erhaben.

    In jedem Fall erhabener als die Bewohner Neuseelands, die in diesem Teil des Landes wohnen. Die Haupteinnahmequelle des Landes ist der Tourismus. Wirklich freundlich gehen die Menschen hier aber nicht mit Fremden um. Das wurde uns bereits von den zwei Frauen, die wir abends in Matakana kennen gelernt haben, prophezeit. Es gibt Leute, die am Camper rütteln, Mittelfinger zeigen und angelächelt wird man ohnehin nicht. Hier wollen wir nun wirklich nicht bleiben...

    Dargaville, New Zealand

    Land of the Dairy Cows
    Fun couple of days on the farm. Helped out a bit with house rearranging. Rested and yelled at the sheep that were eating Susie's fruit tree branches. Swam in Pool and familiarize myself with the NZ TV news. My friends and their friends here talk very softly/quietly. So I was convinced to purchase hearing aids upon my return to the States. Crap!! Walked with very smart well behaved dogs to their milking shed. The dairy cows now are reared so special that they can't have strangers around before/when milking... They will not give milk!!!
    Stayed on a highly successful Dairy farm. Wonderful people. Lots of fun times.

    Van Collection Day

    February 7, 2018 in New Zealand

    Woke up again early from Chris's alarm lol then finally fell back asleep. We both properly woke up around 8:30am showered and then started packing. We left our appartment about 10:45 and headed to the city center where we thought we would get a taxi. We then decided to walk to the bus stop however we got lost for a little while. We finally found a stop and hopped on heading back to the airport. After about 45 minutes we were at the airport waiting for a juicy shuttle to take us to collect our van. Had a quick maccaz and we were on our way. Signing the paper work only took us roughly 5 minutes, the lady who helped us was super helpful and chucked in a free dvd player and some dvds. They showed us the van and how everything worked then we were on our way. We decided to go get some essentials before we hit the road. We went to The Warehouse and bought several things and then headed to Woolworths to buy enough food for 3-4 days. We decided we should see the top of Auckland first so started heading towards the Bay of Islands. We headed from Auckland airport to Helensville and then headed to Warkworth and upto Wellsford and then onto Ruawal. We first stopped near Warkworth were we went off road and took some photos up a mountian. We nearlly died here from my attempt to 3 point turn on a cliff haha. We then stopped around Ruawal where we made some sandwiches, the view was amazing here - we were over looking hills, the ocean and a huge mountain. We continued onto Dargaville were we half set up the camper and had a short stop. It was now getting fairly cold and dark so we decided to go only a little further. By now it was about 9:30pm and we were at Baylys Beach. We were going to stay there however the camp site was $40 I think not lol. After about half an hour driving trying to figure out where to stay we went back to Dargaville and parked in a carpark at the back of the local shops. It was then nighty night for us as we were super tired.Read more
