    Keas :-)))

    February 2 in New Zealand

    Jaaaaaa, auf einem Bild des Footprints "Otira Viaduct" kann man schon einen auf dem Felsen erkennen :-))
    Jetzt sehen wir plötzlich vier Keas unmittelbar in der Nähe des Aussichts-Parkplatzes für das Viadukt.
    Köstlich ist es, sie zu beobachten - sie sind tatsächlich überhaupt nicht scheu. Sie "balgen" vor unserer Kameralinse, als würden sie eine Show abziehen...
    Sie sind übrigens um ein Vielfaches größer als wir erwartet haben :-))
    Obwohl sie hier als "freche Diebe" bezeichnet werden, versuchen sie nichts in der Art - sicher ein Ergebnis der vor vielen Jahren begonnenen „Erziehung" der Touristen, die Keas nicht mehr zu füttern, da sie sonst verlernen würden, sich in den kalten Monaten selbst zu ernähren....

    Day 75: MTB unchained & Boulder Castle

    October 3, 2016 in New Zealand

    Dreamed about flying Flippers, that's not entirely a dream it's real😉. The beach site we woke up was covered in fog when we arrived and less spooky now. We moved to the mountainbike track above Christchurch, Burwood Forrest the barman had said, it was hard to find with all these roadworks around. When we arrived it looked a little like home and the track was partly on dunes as well. A really nice track through beautiful forrest, a little short but on almost the farthest point when we turned back the jamming and skipping of my chain showed his last jamming. It broke for no good reason at that moment, I had to laugh because it only had to survive 6km longer. Instead of walking back we just continued the track while I was stepping on a chainless bike and it worked excellent. Going as fast as Mariska most of the time 😈 and we were laughing about me making a stupid figure on a broken bike 😉.
    We delivered the bikes totally in ruins in Christchurch, there was enough wrong with both while we used and maintained them properly for only 2 weeks. Maybe bad luck that we broke a lock, a chain, a few gears and a rear wheel 😑.
    Ok next stop: New world supermarket yeee and Food fight at Domino's haha a real yeah 😆.
    After that ASAP to Castle Hill on the way to Arthurs Pass for some awesome boulder time.
    We arrived at these rock formations and read the sign: "These rocks are not man made or moved" haha why would it we tought? Well if you see the full picture of the formations you could think it was man made. We first planned 45 minutes here but spend over 2 hours because it was so much fun climbing around there. Definetly worth a visit or everybody. From there to Arthurs Pass and all the way to Devils Lookout with the demonic Kea birds haha, hilarious and beautiful (Ara looking) creatures. They made fun of some Chinese there when they didn't understand that feeding them wasn't allowed. Our dubbing of the birds was even more hilarious 😆 When we turned to see the view again is was covered in clouds. We fled for the mist back the way we came to our campsite near Castle Hill. Everyday is different but everyday is wonderfull.

    איש גדול בארץ ההוביטים

    February 28, 2017 in New Zealand

    אשתף אותכם במוטיב חוזר בטיול שמאוד מתסכל אותי.

    משום מה, ניו זילנד בנויה לאנשים נמוכים. המקום שזה הכי בולט זה דווקא בחדרי השירותים. כמעט בכל מקלחת שהשתמשתי בה בינתיים הייתי חייב להתכופף כדי לשתוף את הפנים והשיער. שלא לדבר על זה שכל המראות תלויות ככה שאני יכול בדיוק לראות איזה חולצה לבשתי היום אבל לא שום דבר מעל.

    אגב לא ברור בכלל למה זה המצב כי הגובה הממוצע בניו זילנד זהה לישראל (כן. בדקתי).

    תמונות להמחשה.
