  • Day100

    Tauranga, Neuseeland

    February 20, 2017 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    "New Zealand is beautiful!"
    Ok, agreed!
    Tauranga has one of the most impressive beaches i've ever seen - by the way - the whole town is really nice!

    The only drawback - being in civilisation - no glass of wine with your friends at the beach.. :-/

    Good news - until now - we've only moved forward. Now, we're on our way back. Pretty much the same route until Bali via Australia. Means - the end of my contract is getting closer :-)

  • Day94

    Wellington, Neuseeland

    February 14, 2017 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Now I saw approximately 7 or 8 harbours in New Zealand. Its clear that NZ has an english touch - if you ask for my opinion to come back - well..

    Most of what NZ is about.. The british Islands are not so different. I like England a lot, so I'd rather drive to England than to come to NZ again.

    Don't get me wrong - New Zealand is a beautiful country! But you can experience similar views and ways of life in Europe as well.

    If you travel from Europe to this part of the world - go to Australia - its more interesting, more different than Europe. If you want to see astonishing towns.. Skip Wellington - Sydney or Melbourne are by far more interesting!

    The most exciting thing in Wellington was some bavarian beer.. :-D

  • Day92

    Timaru, Neuseeland

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

    The first impression was.. OMG, this could be any small town in England, here is nothing of interest.. As it tourned out, we've had one of our nicest afternoons since I work for Seabourn..
    Caused by strong winds our moorings failed and the whole ship moved away from the pier, crashing into another ship! Luckily, our captain managed that the impact was rather smooth - so not even glasses were destroyed. "Unfortunately" quite a lot of the crew was ashore when all that happened. I was among them, and so we spent an afternoon in the Pub, instead of working - the company paid..

    William was interviewed by the entertainment team! #bigmoment

    February 11, 2017 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ -6 °C

    The first impression of NZ. Great! Great day, great weather, nice place! A glass of wine at the harbour.. Good life!

    Great wifi - connection @the cruiseterminal. And for the first time I saw the Pilot - jumping back to the Pilot - boat - amazing job!Read more

    Melbourne, Australien

    February 5, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 27 °C

    Lucky man!!! I've had quite some time off, so I went to town, to realize that I don't like towns. So I went back - to the beach and had a great time there! Melbourne is a huge town, but really relaxed compared to Sydney..Read more

  • Day82

    Sydney, Australien

    February 2, 2017 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    The reason, why I haven't posted anything in the last week is - the connectors of my phone start to dissolve.. But since I own this phone since more than 4 years know - its entirelly ok, especially since I figured out, how to load the phone anyway... ;-) A slightly russian style - but it works!
    By the way.. In Sydney I tried to buy a new phone, but for some reasons my bankcard didn't work in any of the countries I've visited so far.. (Maybe you should not consider an Account at the "Sparkasse")
    However, I did not even find a shop for phones - but I saw the botanical garden - what a nice place in this huge town!
