    Journée nature au zoo

    March 22 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    Les restrictions sont naturellement respectées, tout le monde reste à un mètre de distance minimum, même avant que le gouvernement dise quoique ce soit. Les bars enregistrent chaque client pour stopper les entrées à 100 personnes max, en nous demandant de rester à 1m... tout va bien... on a voulu prendre l'air au zoo avant de partir.
    PS : J'ai acheté une cigarette électronique 🙂

    Ein Auf und Ab

    December 25, 2019 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Am Nachmittag wollten wir natürlich nochmal raus, wobei aber auch immernoch das Problem bestand, dass heute alles zu hat. Da wir auch keine Lust hatten nochmal das Auto zu bewegen und die Stadt doch ein ganz paar Fahrminuten entfernt liegt, haben wir uns für einen Spaziergang direkt von der Unterkunft aus entschieden.

    Eigentlich wollten wir nur kurz die nähere Umgebung erforschen, sind dann aber doch 2 Stunden auf dem Southern Walk unterwegs gewesen. Der Weg führte uns durch den Truby King Park und über den Mount Albert. Wie es hier so üblich ist ging es immer schön hoch und runter, aber so wurden wir mehrfach mit schönen Ausblicken belohnt.

    Wellington Zoo

    June 7 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 12 °C

    Until the end of June the entry for Wellington Zoo is for free so we, including our friends Emile and Pauline, decided now is the best time to go. We were really happy to finally see Kea's even though it wasn't in the wild and they were doing grown up things 😂 we did get to see their pretty colours though. We also saw an Emu in an open enclosure, Capybaras, running giraffes (sooo cool, they look like they're running in slow motion 😂) and otters.Read more

    Wellington Zoo

    February 5 in New Zealand ⋅ ☁️ 14 °C

    Oh the Wellington Zoo! Definitely my favourite zoo now. It is a medium size, but due to it being a weekday and rainy and us showing up right at opening we had the chance to have tons of one on one conversations with the zookeepers, they even knew our names and advised us of good things to see within the zoo. We finally got to see kiwi birds, 2!, and they were active and running around and playing and I was just overjoyed. Florence was able to feed the farm animals. The otters were also very active, out of the water and rolling around together.

    While we waited for the farm feeding Florence was trying to convince a little boy (17 months) to come play with her and eventually just kept hugging and kissing him.
