    NZ- Cape Reigna

    April 2, 2017 in New Zealand ⋅ ☁️ 22 °C

    Mit dem Bus am Strand, Touristen und ein toter Hai...was für ein Tag 😮! Meine letzten Tage in Neuseeland sind angezählt...Und da ich schon den südlichsten Punkt der Südinsel gesehen habe, musste ich natürlich auch an den nördlichsten (eigentlich der nordwestlichste, aber wer ist schon so kleinlich) Punkt. Hier treffen auch der Pazifische Ozean und die Tasmansee aufeinander!

    Mir wurde geraten, nicht selbst hin zu fahren sondern einer der Bustouren zu buchen. Hab ich natürlich gemacht und es hat sich gelohnt! Leider war das Wetter wieder nicht ganz so schön und Cape Reignia lag im Nebel 😑 ! Trotzdem war es ein schöner Tagesausflug inklusive Bodyboarden auf Sanddünen (leider keine Fotos gemacht - vergessen 😊)

    January 27 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    We are settled in our Airbnb with a lovely family hosting us. Florence has already been invited to swim with them and to join them for a bbq 😂. We spent the afternoon getting oriented, showering off plane germs and wandering the nearby shops and malls. Our hosts tell us the NZ sun is brutal between 10am-5pm and they try to avoid having their little one out too much during those times. We will have lots of days where that will be hard to manage, but for today it seemed worthwhile.Read more

    December 12, 2017 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    A 13hr flight from LA and we finally landed in Auckland and after waiting for the bio lab to vet our tent, we jumped in the car with Jon from the airbnb and headed to the house. Jon and Evelyn are the most amazing people we could possibly meet on the start of our NZ tour, they even had us back after Raglan and helped us buy our car. Their house was amazing with a swimming pool to cool off in on the hot days. We would be in Auckland for four days and Jon would drop us at the station to catch the train into the city in a couple of occasions. We went up the Sky Tower one afternoon and the views were amazing. You can see for miles. A ferry trip over to Devonport was also a great way of seeing the city from over the water. Once off at Devonport, we visited Cheltenham beach for a swim, which in the heat was most welcome. The coastal gun batteries from ww2 are on the bluffs between Cheltenham and Devonport which was really cool. From Cheltenham beach we could see the volcanic island Rangitoto, so we decided to take a day trip there. The day trip ended up being a huge hike in the boiling heat and being volcanic Island, it felt twice as hot! The views at the top of Auckland and the surrounding areas were amazing though. On the way down we went via the lighthouse and took a quick swim by the beach. All in all, we had a great time in Auckland and we're very grateful to Jon and Evelyn for helping us with places to go and also for having us back between Christmas and new year, so we could buy a car and start our journey of NZ with more ease.Read more
