    Lake Rotorua Campsite

    December 27, 2016 in New Zealand

    Camping along the way, from Cape Reinga we stopped over in Paihia, which is by the Bay of Islands on the north east coast (in relation to Auckland, which is only about a 3.5 hour drive away). It has been very windy the last few days so luckily we invested in duct tape which has kept our tent together amongst other things. New Zealand has been the most beautiful country I have been to yet, filled with campsites that back home would be four star hotels with the facilities they offer.
    Yesterday we checked into an Airbnb place in West Harbour, Auckland, exhausted and adrenally high from all of the delicious coffee we picked up along the way. Our host welcomed us with arms open, and fed us an amazing dinner and drinks as we walked into a Irish/Kiwi/Chilean party of 10 or so locals. All of us of course say "thirty three and a third" very differently than each other, laughingly as such. We ate venison, lamb and side dishes of carbs, then started with the drinking games and I taught them flip cup which was a throwback for me as I learned it from Joel years ago. The punishment was a shot of tequila which starts off rough but smoothes itself out after a few. So we lucked out big time with this one and made a wonderful friend also.
    We then loaded up with more snacks, stocked full of delicious coffee, spending most of today sorting an itinerary as Rotorua will be our home base for the next few days or so.

    Lake Rotorua

    February 24 in New Zealand

    Der Laufweg um den Kratersee Lake Rotorua beträgt exakt Marathonlänge. Davon bin ich (Nina ist stattdessen Spazieren gegangen) natürlich aber nur einen Teil gelaufen.
    Der See wirkt idyllisch und bezaubernd und doch ist er Mittelpunkt einer sehr aktiven vulkanischen Zone. An vielen Stellen des Seeufers brodelt es und im gleichnamigen Ort ist die Luft ständig von einem Geruch nach faulen Eiern erfüllt.Read more

    Lake Rotorua

    March 23, 2016 in New Zealand

    The rain kept coming down but this did not put us off going on a walk to Lake Rotorua. Plenty of birds were braving the horizontal rain with us and though the conditions didn't allow for prolonged viewing the view of the lake was still fabulous.

    See that horizontal rain here -!97998&authkey=!AKe5_V6lt327yUw&ithint=file,mp4Read more

    Although this one wasn't at the top of my looking-forward-to list, it turned out to be pretty fun. The host was really funny and all the kids' excitement helped energize everyone else. I also bought some merino wool/possum fur gloves. It's a thing, Google it.

    March 8, 2017 in New Zealand

    Wir wurden leider vom schlechten Wetter eingekesselt. Die Straßen zu unserem nächsten Ziel Hahei und Cooks Beach sind gesperrt wegen zu viel Regen. Deshalb bleiben wir erstmal eine Nacht länger in Rotorua und hoffen das Wetter bald besser wird. Wenn nicht werden wir wohl leider die Strände auslassen und weiter nach Auckland reisen.
    Viele liebe Grüße an alle Daheim gebliebenen.

    Geothermie stinkt

    March 7, 2017 in New Zealand

    Kaum in Rotorua angekommen wollten wir sehen wo die vielen Rauchwolken her kommen. Gehört hatten wir von den Thermalquellen schon. Aber das sie so sehr sinken würden hätten wir nicht gedacht. Außerdem gibt es die in klar und in Matsch :)

    December 23, 2017 in New Zealand

    Da Wai-O-Tapu voliamo (letteralmente) all'Agrodome, dove si trova il punto di partenza dello Zorb. Ormai è troppo tardi per fare una discesa (sorry, rotolata), ma almeno i miei hanno l'occasione di vederlo di persona.
    Non c'è una gran folla, ma ci sono comunque un paio di ragazzi che si esibiscono in rotolate nella famosa palla. Ad essere sincera, i miei non sembrano esattamente entusiasti di questo tipico sport neozelandese. Io invece, che lo avevo già provato anni fa, mi sarei cimentata volentieri. Vabbé, sarà per la prossima volta... però la foto con lo Zorb me la faccio!Read more
