    Out and About

    May 27, 2017 in New Zealand ⋅ ☁️ 16 °C

    Saturday morning in Mission Bay, it is a lovely area to walk around with great cafes and some lovely homes.

    After our walk a short drive to One Tree Hill. Incredible views and a lovely park overlooking Auckland district.

    Then at night we went to the football where we sat in the WAG's corporate box. Just as well the Warriors won because it all added to the atmosphere.

    Haunted House

    June 17, 2017 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    We visited the French Markets in Parnell today they are fabulous. John and Melissa had lots of food samples. While in Parnell we walked around the shopping area. We then went home for the afternoon and dinner. Melissa and Luke had a surprise for our last night and it was so much fun. They took us to "Spookers" which was a haunted house and Forest Walk. Melissa and I had a number of scares but the boys being boys just laughed at us and were not frightened at all just enjoyed the experience.Read more

    Mission Bay

    February 11, 2017 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Ahoi mein Freund!

    Direkt nach dem Frühstück kam Wiwi zu mir ins Hostel, damit wir gemeinsam zum Mission Bay fahren konnten. Ein Bekannter Strand hier in Auckland. Er hat eine Strandpromenade und ist super erreichbar. Dadurch aber leider auch sehr überlaufen.
    Mir persönlich gefällt Long Bay um einiges besser, wahrscheinlich weil er abgelegner ist.
    Aber trotzdem es ist schön am Mission Bay.
    Mir war das Wasser leider zu kalt zum Schwimmen, aber ich genoss die Sonne. Außerdem habe ich mir einen Schwimmreifen gekauft, den Wiwi dann mit ins Wasser nahm.

    An Neuseelands Stränden mag ich vor allem die Muscheln. Es scheint so, als gäbe es hier so unendlich viele. Auch viele verschiedene. Ich freue mich immer, wenn ich Jakobsmuscheln finde. Sie erinnern mich an meinen Vater.
    Mich faszinieren Muscheln sowieso. Den genauen Grund kann ich allerdings gar nicht sagen.

    Zurück in der Stadt hatte ich eine kurze Zeit und genoss die Ruhe im
    Dann traf ich mich mit Wiwi in ihrem Zimmer und wir schauten Videos von Fynn Kliemann.
    Als es dunkel wurde gingen wir mit zwei Zimmergenossen von Wiwi auf das Laternenfestival.
    Dazu schreibe ich gleich aber einen eigenen Eintrag! :)

    Mood: erschöpft
    Song of the day: Annenmaykantereit - Made me believe

    Mel reist.

    Mission Bay, Auckland

    March 1, 2016 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    A 20 mins drive from Auckland on a road that takes you all along the coast. For the best views of Auckland stop at the car park of the Sea Life Aquarium in Orakei and then drive on to Mission Bay. All along the coast you will have beautiful views and lovely little bays where you can sit down, put your feet in the sand and smell the ocean. 🌊Read more

    December 11, 2015 in New Zealand ⋅ ☁️ 18 °C

    Vcera jsme to se Samem trochu protahli. Diskutovali jsme a diskutovali a najednou bylo pul 2 :-(. Spala jsem na gauci, co mi z neho couhala pulka hlavy a trictvrte nohou. Ale jinak vse v poho ;-).
    Pul dne jsem stravila "papirovanim" v knihovne, a pak uz jsem toho mela dost a sla se aspon na chvili projit po Mission Bay. Nemohla jsem se pohnout od auta - v pripade, ze by snad mel nekdo o tu starou damu zajem :-(.
    Vecer jsem se prestehovala ke couchsurferovi Grantovi. Mam vlastni pokoj s dvouluzkem... a pan domu spi na gauci v obyvaku. Moc nechapu, proc na gauci nespim ja-couchsurfer, ale drzim pusu a krok. Postel je totiz docela pohodlna :-). Uvarila jsem ze zbytku vynikajici veceri a pak jsme s Grantem debatovali o zivote. Napr. o jeho prvni zene, co mu pred 6 lety zemrela na rakovinu a co se o ni po 7 letech vztahu nahodou dozvedel, ze ji neni 33, ale 40. A ze je tedy nikoli o 7, ale o 14 let starsi nez on!!!

    Last Day!!

    March 5, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ 🌙 16 °C

    We woke up about 9am got ready and packed our stuff, we then checked out at 10am. We had until 2pm to kill time before we had to return our van. We first got some McDonalds again, this time we made sure not to make the same mistake as last time with ordering the whole store hahah. We sat in the car and ate it in a carpark. We then headed in to Auckland. As we had some time to waste we found a beach in Mission Bay and stayed there for about an hour. It was nice becuase the sun was actually out. We then headed to Jucy. We got there and needed to unpack the car. This took about an hour as we had so much food and stuff we had accumulated over the last month. We gave a lot of stuff to a couple who was collecting their van next to us and then threw out loads. Once we had cleaned everything we headed into the office and signed our paper work. We went over our trip with the ladies and the issues we had and got reimbursed 2 days in the end for our battery issues. We then waited about half an hour for the airport bus. While we waited we started chatting to these 2 guys whos van had unfortunately been broken into. By the sound of it they'd had the worst few days. Their wallets, passports and clothes had been stolen.
    We got to the airport about 5 which was roughly 3 hours before our flight because we were flighing China Air our time were not on the board just yet. We waited outside and ate some donuts lol.
    About 6:00ish we headed in and checked in. Our flight was slightly delayed which was annoying. We ate some Hungry Jacks then boarded about 8:30, so depressing our holiday was over! The flight home wasnt to bad we both just watched a movie. It was raining and so sticky when we arrived, bugs were attacking us while we waited for Chris's dad lol. He picked us up around 12pm and then we headed home.

    The end hahah. Such a great holiday!!
