    • Day 23

      Letzte Camper Nacht im Torkar Bay Res.

      April 25 in New Zealand ⋅ ☁️ 17 °C

      Heute ist tatsächlich unsere letzte Nacht im "Sammy". Morgen müssen wir ihn in Auckland zurück geben. Deshalb sind wir heute auch Richtung Auckland gefahren, damit es morgen alles gut zu schaffen ist. Wir haben einen Campingplatz an einer Bucht gefunden, an der Westküste unterhalb von Auckland. Im Gegensatz zu unseren bisherigen Erlebnissen, ist dieser Ort für uns recht ernüchternd. Dafür ist es hier ruhig und wir haben die Zeit genutzt, um zu waschen (schließlich wollen wir ja in Singapur nicht müffeln 😀), Ordnung in die Koffer zu bringen usw. Denn wir dürfen in unserem Sammy morgen nichts vergessen. Trotzdem haben wir noch einen Abendspaziergang gemacht, bevor wir wir gekocht haben - Resterverbrauch sozusagen 🙃Read more

    • Day 74

      Last day in New Zealand

      February 12, 2020 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

      I slept bad this night, because many people were leaving very early in the morning, the first one at 4 am 😳😴
      So I didn't sleep so well after that, as they were not so quiet as you would expect then to be.

      So I got up at 7.30 am as it was no sense to try to sleep a bit more.
      I had my breakfast and started to talk to a guy from Germany how gave me a lot of tips about the west coast of Australia. He was like, best decision ever to travel there! Best place in Australia.
      That sounds good!

      And it looks like I gonna need to do some camping down there as well, as they don't have so many hostels along the west coast as I was expecting. Good, I met him to tell me this! Well, it feels like I gonna keep the camping lifestyle up for a few more weeks! I can say I like the sound of it! 🤗 😎

      He also encouraged me, to focus on travel north an don't spend much time south of Perth. So now I am feeling much more comfortable about the next part of my travel!

      We talked so much, that we got a bit late. I had to finish my packing and get ready to go.
      Fixed a few sandwiches from the bread I had left for the day and then I went to Charles Beach where I will spend some time until it's time to meet Steve in Auckland at 2 pm and leave my car to him.

      I met a guy there, he started to talk to me. I found out, that his brother in law is owning a big racing stable and a lot of horses as well. And he promised me to fix work for me if I ever decide to move to New Zealand. 😉

      Then I went to Auckland to sign the papers with Steve, talked about how we will keep on going, as he is going to sell the car for me now and I will get the money as soon as it's sold, what can be next week or in 6 months.
      But like this, I get the most money out of it in the end, half of what I paid for it in the first place.

      Steve then drove me to my Airbnb in Mangere where I found a room for the night.
      He dropped me off there around 2.40 pm.
      So I had a quiet afternoon.
      In the evening I got invited for dinner from a german couple that is also staying here overnight. They bought Chinese food and got so much that the said immediately that I can eat with them! That was nice!

      So we were sitting outside together the whole evening and were talking about our trips.
      Around 9 pm I took a shower and then went to bed to try to sleep.
      Unfortunately, the bed is really hard, it’s like sleeping on the floor. 😳😅
      So it was really hard to find a position that was at least a little bit comfortable and it took me longer to fall asleep.
