    Kayaking im Queen Charlotte Sound

    March 30 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Ein halber Tag Kayaking ist ganz schön anstrengend 😁. Dafür haben wir mehrere Rochen, Kormorane, Herons und sogar einen little blue Penguin gesehen! Fotos gibts keine davon... wir erinnern uns auch so 😊🐧
    Und dank der beginnenden Nebensaison hatten wir den Guide ganz für uns alleine.

    חכם ב sandfly

    March 17, 2017 in New Zealand ⋅ 🌙 17 °C

    אני והילה מדגמנות התנהגות אחראית מול ה sandflies
    אני, עם המילה האחרונה בלבוש אטום
    הילה, עם ידידו הטוב ביותר של האדם - חומר נוגד יתושים

    Marlborough Sound Kayaking

    December 24, 2016 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 59 °F

    After a day of travel and realizing that most things would be closed on Christmas Day, we planned for a busy day touring what the region has to offer.

    We booked a half day sea kayaking trip out of a small town called Picton. Picton is the South island port of ferries crossing the Cook Strait from Wellington. We were joined by three other couples - American, Spanish and Australian - all off the cruise ship that was docked for the day. The trip took us out into the Queen Charlotte Sound - one of the many sounds/bays in this area, and also a scenic 70 km walking track. The islands were forested and extended in all directions.

    It was a clear day with excellent weather that made it a perfect morning for kayaking. At times, we saw large pods of jellyfish in the water around us. Since their stings are pretty weak, we were able to get some pictures with the underwater camera. Shallow rocks were covered in mussels, a local delicacy. We also got very close to a NZ fur seal sunbathing on a dock. The various bays feature numerous vacation homes, locally known as baches, which sit empty most of the year.

    We stopped for snacks and drinks in a nice beach cove, and through chit chat found out that the American couple was from Colorado. We paddled a few more bays to yet another sandy beach which was our pickup point. The return drive took us into the hills which made for great views to show just how scenic the area is.

    When we returned to town, it was overrun with cruisers so we made a quick exit. Besides, we had some wine to drink.

    Momorangi Bay - erster Halt Südinsel

    December 15, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Die ersten Kilometer auf der neuen Insel waren kurvig und steil....der erste Stopp zeigt, es lohnt sich! Eingenistet zwischen Wald und Meer können wir eine Sheesha genießen und all unsere Sachen waschen (wurde auch Zeit).

    Governors Bay Scenic Reserve

    November 20, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ 🌧 12 °C

    A 10min walk to the beach. A lonly beach. Noone else was there and all campervans drive past. You hear nothing but the waves. I saw a stingray and 3 ducks come close to me. The water was so clear. If you'll come here make sure you go for a swim. Such a nice place for picnick, go swimming, just chill out... What ever you want. This is like your own little paradise.Read more
