    Zwischenstop in Auckland

    March 4, 2017 in New Zealand

    Mein erster Stop auf meiner Reise Richtung Süden war in Auckland. Die Entscheidung dafür viel ganz spontan, als mir mein Freund Herman erzählte, dass er immer noch bei einem Freund in Auckland sei und ob ich nicht vorbei kommen wolle. Gesagt, getan. Ich habe mich also mit Herman und seinem Freund getroffen und wir sind zum Strand gefahren. Abends waren wir noch bei anderen Freunden, wo wir das Spiel Cards against Humanity gespielt haben. Ich durfte dann sogar bei den Freunden übernachten, weil sie noch ein Bett frei hatten 😁 Ein super Tag also!Read more

    New Zealand

    November 11 in New Zealand

    Day one in Auckland! We arrived mid morning having spent the last 24 hours travelling. I had no idea how I was feeling and seemed incapable of functioning but thankfully was not as tired as I thought I would be thanks to having a spare seat in our row in the long flight from Dubai (thank you Dane Cleaver!) we got the bus into town and then got an Uber to our air bnb which is a cute little annexe in someone’s house not far from one of the main streets in Auckland. We jumped in the shower as we smelled like goat then headed (rather aimlessly) our into the city. The travelling gods were kind to us as we walked past a craft beer place where we had a pint and fish burgers just what we needed. The sun had come out so we decided to go up the Sky Tower to check out the views which were good. Neither of us were making much sense at this point so we decided to head back and try and stay awake until the evening. We lasted 10 minutesRead more

    My Auckland Home (Ponsonby)

    March 1, 2016 in New Zealand

    My lovely Airbnb in Ponsonby. Hosts Peter and Judy are fantastic.The houses in this area are adorable. Wooden with little front porches you can sit on. Lots of cafes, restaurants and shops on the main street (all independent) and everyone is so friendly.

    Welcome dinner with my friend Harry and his girlfriend Jamie made for an amazing 1st evening. Hundreds of cicadas in the garden and the pouring rain that fell on the roof last night made everything so much cosier. I went out like a light. 😊

    Going North (Auckland to Paihia)

    March 2, 2016 in New Zealand

    So this is it. My first proper road trip. It will take me up North to Paihia in the Bay of Islands. It's an approximately 250km drive which should take about 3.5 hours. Knowing me and how often I stop to take pictures it will take much longer than that 😊. But the journey is all that matters so I am really excited to get going. Will also stop at Whangarei Harbour on the way for a spot of lunch. Me and my trusty steed are off. 🚗Read more

    Entspannen in Auckland

    April 18 in New Zealand

    Wir lassen es ganz langsam angehen. Frühstücken, erzählen, entspannen. Ich buche meine Unterkunft für morgen bis Sonntag in Byron Bay und organisiere ein paar Sachen. In den letzten zwei Wochen war ich non-stop unter Leuten und hatte kaum Zeit für mich, sehr ungewöhnlich für mich. Ich gehe alleine eine große Runde spazieren und erkunde das hügelige Auckland. Ich finde den anderen Eingang zum Park, wo wir gestern Abend schon waren. Tolle Bäume, kaum jemand da. Ich gehe nochmal schaukeln und verabschiede mich von Neuseeland. Tief beeindruckt und sehr dankbar für alles, was hier passiert ist.Read more
