    November 4, 2016 in New Zealand

    Die Fox River Cave (Fuchs Fluss Höhle klingt irgendwie dämlich) liegt eine gute Stunde Wanderung vom nächstgelegenen Parkplatz entfernt. Ausgestattet mit Stirnlampen und allem was man so braucht, machten wir uns auf den Weg. Sogar mal ohne Regen. Nachdem wir dann in die Höhle eingestiegen sind (ja, sowas geht in Neuseeland und wird sogar ausgeschildert), stellten wir schnell fest: Es regnet drinnen… Tropfsteinhöhle…
    Das Positive daran ist natürlich, dass sowas zur Formung von Stalaktiten und Stalagmiten führt. Die waren auch von einem sehr klaren und hellen Weiß, natürlich nur da, wo einfältige Touristen diese nicht betatscht oder gar abgebrochen haben.
    Der Weg wurde irgendwann von einem Teich unterbrochen. Kurzerhand wurden die Schuhe ausgezogen und noch einige Meter tiefer in die Höhle vorgestoßen. So weit, wie es wohl vor mir schon länger niemand mehr getan hat. Wir schafften es dann auch wieder ohne uns zu verirren aus der Höhle.

    Franz josef glacier to a random surf spo

    December 1, 2016 in New Zealand

    Stayed at the glow worm backpackers last night. Went to the pub with open Mic and then did a bush walk with glow worms very cool.
    Today we went to franz Joseph glacier then drove up to punakaiki where I surfed alone. We are staying in an air bnb which has $1000 views on a backpacker budget. It's not on the grid and dosent have sewage but as I said the view is epic.
    Tomorrow we get the ferry to the north island and probably party in the nation's capital Wellington.

    No rest for the weary, almost literally

    May 15, 2016 in New Zealand

    Up early the next morning with a fairly long drive down to the West Coast. We had heard our luck with beautiful sunny weather was about to come to an end down there. We crossed over and almost as soon as we hit the coast the clouds came in.

    The ocean was certainly wild. The way we saw it, I can't imagine it is ever swimmable but apparent the west coast can get tropical flows of water at times.

    We checked out Pancake Rocks after our usual picnic lunch. Fascinating formations of rocks that look like crepes stacked up together. We were advised to go at high tide to see the blow holes. Unfortunately that was at six and we still had a couple hours to drive. Fortunately though because of the weather the sea was wilder than usual and we caught a few.

    On to Greymouth for supplies and our next place where we would be for 2 nights.

    This place was 12km off the main road. Our hosts were so sweet and hugging us within a few minutes. They have a cottage behind their house. You walk in between 2 greenhouses to a little clearing with chairs, tables and a fire pit. To the right is the 'mancave', a little hut with a wood stove and chairs to hangout. The fire had been going for a while and it was cozy. Behind the fire pit is an outdoor bathtub.

    To the left was the cabin. Tiny little thing but so cute and well organized. A bed with electric blankets and lots of regular ones. A heater on the wall and an extra portable one. A kitchen table. And a small kitchen arranged in a way that worked well, with everything you could possibly need. The fridge was stocked with milk and bacon, butter, fresh bread, eggs and homemade cookies left on the counter.

    Cooked dinner and hit the sack. It was raining when we went to bed but boy did it get worse. In the middle of the night I woke up to what I thought was a gun shot right next to my head, thunder. It continued on and off throughout the night. Quite honestly the craziest thunder and lightening storm I can remember.

    Great Coast Road

    January 14 in New Zealand

    Heute die Great Coast Road „gefunden“. Woher die den Namen wohl hat 😉
    Ab Westport and der Küste nach Greymouth, nette Sache bei super Wetter und kaum Verkehr. 👍

    Gestern durch 🌧 aber ordentlich!
    Von der Fähre zuerst nördlich dann nach Westen über Murchison nach Westport.
    Wieder coole Strassen und am Nachmittag war es wieder schön.Read more

    Paparoa National Park/Fox River Cave

    May 1, 2015 in New Zealand

    Tak co, prselo rano nebo ne? Ano, ano. I v dalsim narodnim parku (asi nejmensim na NZ?) jsem zase slapala v desti. Nick me svymi fotkami vcera setsakramentsky naladil na Inland Pack Track (utvrdil me v tom, ze vych ho urcite dala za jeden den), ale moje dilema ohledne Dilemma Creeku :-) (jehoz korytem, jakozto i korytem Fossil Creeku, bych musela slapat, protoze jina cesta tu neexistuje) za me razne vyresil DOC. Velkou cast treku totiz kvuli nedavne bouri a popadanym stromum oznacil za "impassable" a zavrel.
    Kdyz jsem stala na brehu Fox River a pomerovala si jen tak cvicne jeji hloubku, stejne bych rekami spis plavala nez v nich hikovala ;-).
    Aby byla sranda, aspon jsem se po zatracene kluzkych kamenech prosla k jeskynim na Fox River a tu vrchni krapatko prozkoumala (spodni, vetsi, se nesmi, pry tam padaji ze stropu sutry) - hezke krapnicky, hezke :-).
