    Auckland Bound

    December 20, 2018 in New Zealand ⋅ 🌧 15 °C

    Yesterday's Cook Strait ferry crossing was uneventful. It was raining and since there was no overhead cover, I stayed inside and napped. Maybe it will be nice when I head south later on.

    We arrived at the hostel around 18:30, and I jumped in the shower since I didn't get one after the swim, just a hot freshwater hosing off. There was a bar in the basement called Basement--who would've guessed--and the colocated travel agency was in charged of Game Night. I signed up for the pool competition and won. The travel agent asked me what I wanted. I didn't know what the prizes were, so I said a beer. It was a hostel game night after all. How good could the prizes be? I won a five-day/four-night island hopping tour in Fiji. No kidding. And I already have a flight to there for my birthday. Happy birthday to me!!!

    We were on the road at 06:40 this morning...on the dot and minus one person who was late. "Motors," our driver, warned us that she would be leaving on time because today's 700-kilometer drive would take so long (she can only drive a certain number of hours each day).

    Now, we've just left the pickup/dropoff point in the town of National Park. Lol. We had a coffee stop in Bulls. Many of he stores had names like DelictiBulls, EdiBulls, etc. Lol.

    So long [for now] and thanks for all the fish. ✌️

    Raglan > Hamilton > Raurimu

    March 18 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    Wir machen Urlaub mit Heather in unseren Flitterwochen. :-) Auf geht's nach Raurimu, in die Nähe von Tongariro. Der Ort ist so klein, hier stehen wohl nur zehn Häuser.
    Es ist schön zurück zu sein bei den Vulkanen.Read more

    Wie viele faule Tage kann man haben? Auf jeden Fall einen mehr! Wir genießen weiterhin diese friedliche Gegend mitten im Grünen, umgeben von Kühen, Schafen, Alpacas und der weltberühmten Eisenbahnspirale.
    Morgen geht's weiter!

    March 19 in New Zealand ⋅ ☁️ 11 °C

    Was gestern als sonniger Tag endete, fing heute sehr bewölkt an und hörte auch leider nicht mehr auf. Wieder kriegen wir die umliegenden Vulkane leider nicht zu sehen.
    Also hatten wir einfach einen faulen Urlaubstag mit kleinen Spaziergängen.Read more
