    Bay of Island Paihia/Auckland

    December 4, 2019 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    Highlights des Tages:
    - Bei Sonnenschein und blauem Himmel aufgewacht.
    - Segelturn durch die "Bay of Island" gemacht #bestconditions #couldntbebetter
    - Stopp mit dem Katamaran am Strand zum Schnorcheln und Wandern: 192 Stufen bis zum "Top of the World" #ausblickunbezahlbar
    - Barbecue/Lunch auf dem Katamaran - liebevoll von unserem Captain Vanessa vorbereitet.
    - Tierisch-coole Begleitungen während unserer Segeltour: Minipinguine, Delfine und Kormorane
    - Hässlichsten Weihnachtsbaum Neuseelands gekürt.
    - Ins Stadtfeeling von "Auckland" eingetaucht.

    Lowlights des Tages:
    - Unsere Beine sind zu kurz, um sie über die Katamaran-Reling ins Wasser zu hängen
    - In den Ferienhäusern auf den Inseln der Bay sind schon alle freien Stellen als Hausmeister und Zimmermädchen besetzt. #verdammt

    Erkenntnisse des Tages:
    - Pinguine lassen sich den ganzen Tag nur faul durchs Wasser treiben und suchen Futter.
    - Die Uschi, unser Navi, braucht "freie Sicht zum Himmel", um sich zu finden. #interessant
    - Die Weihnachtszeit ist in Neuseeland Erdbeer-Zeit. #erdbeerernte #erdbeerbowle
    - Das "Allegra"- Haus beim Heinz war das schönste B&B mit der grossartigsten Aussicht.
    - Der Segelturn war ein wunderschönes Highlight am Ende unseres perfekt durchgeplanten Neusseland-Trips. #dankeandenguide ♡
    - Wir haben sogar die Sonne mit nach Auckland genommen.

    Frage(n) des Tages:
    "Hast du dich ernsthaft gerade angeleckt?"

    Fazit des Tages:
    Salz in den Haaren, Meeresrauschen im Ohr, Sonne auf der Haut: Glück kommt in Wellen.

    Bay of islands

    November 9, 2016 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Soo my lovely host mum (or rather host grandma?) suggested a sailing trip and of course I was totally in as this is the best way to explore bay of islands! And it truly was stunning! There are so many little uninhabited islands, it felt like little greece but way greener!
    Sailing was really cool, I was even allowed to take the wheel for quite a time!
    We stopped for lunch on an island, but unfortunately I made all the pictures with my gopro on there, so I cant show you what it looked like, but believe me, I felt like I landed on a caribbean beach with shiny white sand and cristal clear, jade greenish/bluish water! *-*

    Other than that I feel pretty exhausted (yeah travelling can be exhausting I guess ^^) and so I spent the rest of the day chilling at the beach amd later cooking dinner with friends :)

    Oh and guess what?! I got my first sunburn: on my feet! Yup I completely forgot to put suncream on my feet although I spent the whold day barefoot on a boat - clever me!

    First stopover at Roberton Island

    October 31, 2016 in New Zealand ⋅ 🌧 14 °C

    Since we got the boat to ourselves, we could stopover where ever we want. So we did and got the chance to walk a little trail up this picture perfect island for a first overlooked of the full bay.

    Since we couldn't land with our sailing boat directly ashore we got a little boat called dingy which we had to rudder to the islands...

    Day trip (Motuarohia Island)

    March 3, 2016 in New Zealand ⋅ 🌙 19 °C

    It is safe to say that today I am feeling like the luckiest little German on the planet and I think I found paradise 😊.

    I had an incredible day exploring the Bay of Islands with the crew from Tucker Thompson and their iconic tall ship (http://tucker.co.nz/). We had perfect weather and cruising the islands was absolutely stunning. After a few hours of sailing we stopped at Motuarohia Island for lunch (http://www.bay-of-islands.co.nz/places-to-see/roberton-island/). Dinghies brought us to shore and we had free time to go up to the lookout, swim or just relax on the beach. On the boat, the crew encouraged everyone to get stuck in, helping with raising the sails, climbing the rigging or just take in the beauty of the nature surrounding you.

    I met some really nice people on the boat and spent the rest of the day in Russell waiting for the sun to set (a tip from my hostel manager). Needless to say that it was absolutely stunning. 😊
