    Kingston - Mossburn - Te Anau

    March 16, 2019 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

    Kingston liegt am südlichen Ende des Lake Wakatiku. Von da aus führte unser Weg via Mossburn zum Wilderness Scientific Reserve, das zwischen The Key und Te Anau liegt. Typisch für Neuseeland säumten unzählige Schafe den Weg dorthin und ab und zu trafen wir auch auf eine Kuhherde.
    Auch dieses Fleckchen Erde gehört zum UNESCO Weltnaturerbe. Wen wundert's wenn man die Bilder sieht!? Aber bevor wir die schöne Gegend bei einem Spaziergang zu einem Aussichtspunkt bestaunen konnten, mussten wir unsere "Raubtiere" füttern. Es war ja auch höchste Zeit fürs Mittagessen!

    November 7, 2016 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    With my tendency to be cold I was on frequent weather watch the past few days. On arrival in QT, I was delighted with the sunshine & blue skies. I think I have enough warm gear but as a sceptic eskimo, I mentally prepared for the worst.

    We had our hike briefing and then wondered around town. We soaked up the atmosphere with some flat whites (this is amazing milky coffee with espresso- kind off like a latte but different) . We sat on the wall next to the lake and were just mesmerized with the grandeur of the surroundings.

    It didn't take much to decide to go on a running adventure around the lakes. Well a brilliant decision - the scenery made us lose track of time.Roedolf moaned about my speed sometimes but its easy to get carried away. There were plenty of photo stops and wow moments. I continued a bit further along the lake then joined up with Roedolf again and we disappeared into the gorgeous sunset.

    I am ridiculously excited about my bucket list hike that starts tomorrow.
