    Aber ez sitzemer im Flugi und mir freued ois, das mer rechtziitig sötted aacho zum d G-Adventoures Tour in Sumatra mache!

    ___

    We arrived at the airport at 18:30. Only because we didn't know what else to do.😁
    Our flight was delayed from 0:55 to 1:55.
    In the end we took off at 3:40. That was late enough for us to miss the connecting flight from Kuala Lumpur.😭
    We then had to wait 6h in Kuala Lumpur for the next flight to Medan(Sumatra) and almost missed it because we just had to much time😂 and because it was listed on the screen not as Medan but Kuala somthing.😅😅 ooops...

    ____

    After another 10h bus ride we arrived in Auckland on the 31. At around 5 p.m.. We then had to find our way from the city to our hostel to drop off our bags.
    Once that was done we had our last 2016 dinner in an indian restaurant nearby (butter chicken😍😍).

    After dinner we took the ferry to devonport, where we sat into a café for an hour or so till it was time to climb up Mt. Victoria. From up there we had a great view over the city and enjoyed the fireworks on the other side of the bay.
    The first time we spent new years eve in flipflops.

    December 28, 2016 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Nachere meh oder weniger ungmüetliche 10Stündige Busfahrt simmer endli in Picton aacho und am nechste Tag grad nach Wellington.
    D Fahrt isch so lang gange will d Strecki über Kaikoura wegem Erdbebe immerno underbroche isch.
    Uf de Fähre nach Wellington hett de Jan no die coole Albatross Föteli gmacht🤗.
    In Wellington hemmer denn nomal ganzi 2 Täg ziit gha zum s riesige Nationalmuseum wiiter erkunde.🎉🎉🤗
    ____

    After ten hours in the bus we arrived in Picton. It took us so long because the street through Kaikoura is still blocked from the earthquake in November. So we had to take a big detour.
    The next day we took the ferry to Wellington where Jan took this awesome albatross pictures!!

    In Wellington we had another 2 days to spend - mostly in the national museum🤗😍😍😍. The coolest place ever!!

    We also tested the fire alarm - it worked! And the cookies dyed at our "test" 😅

    On the 24th everybody from the hostel cooked a dish and shared it with the others. It was a funny party, but still not very christmasy without our families ;)

    On the 25th we went to see the steepest street of the world.
    And then the day of the 26th came... We definetly had to say goodbye to our gorgeous Nicole... 😭😭 hmm... But we'll see her in February on our skiweekend :)

    newhaven <3

    December 21, 2016 in New Zealand ⋅ ☀️ 13 °C

    De Rückflug vo Stewart island isch einiges sanfter gsi als de Hiflug🤗. In Invercargill hemmer eus nomal mit de Nicole und de Petra uf en Kaffi troffe. Und natürli de Samichlaus z träffe.

    Am Namitag simmer denn nach Newhaven gfahre womer en Retro-Caravan gmietet hend am Strand.
    D'Küste det isch bekannt für die viele Seeleue wo sich im Sand wälzed.
    Es würklich schöns Plätzli!

    _____

    The flight back to the mainland was much smoother than the one to Stewart island🤗.
    In Invercargill we met up with Nicole and Petra for a lunch and a coffee. And of course meeting santa :)
    In the afternoon we drove to Newhaven where we stayed in a Retro-Caravan for one night. The coast there is famous for their beautiful beaches and the many Sealions that lie around in the sand.

    December 19, 2016 in New Zealand ⋅ 🌬 11 °C

    Nebst am Kiwi spotting simmer uf Stewart Island no go laufe und uf Ulva Island (e Insle wo vollständig befreit isch vo igschleppte Ratte, Marder etc.) d'Vogelwelt det blüet wieder richtig uf mir hend Vögel gseh wo mal fast uusgstorbe gsi sind😃.

    Amene Abig simmer no go Pinguin luege, dasmal hemmer sogar chönne Föteli mache!!

    ____

    Besides the Kiwis we also saw alot of other special birds. Some almost extict species wich only live on predator free islands in New Zealand. We saw them on Ulva island, a small island in a bay of Stuart island.

    In the evening we went to the jetty to watch the little blue penguins come back ashore from a day at sea.

    Stewart island 18.-21.12.

    December 18, 2016 in New Zealand ⋅ 🌬 13 °C

    Willmer de Flug chli günstiger becho hend hemmer eus beschlosse uf Stewart island z'flüüge. De Flug isch recht holprig gsi und de Jan isch zwüscheziitlich chli bleich worde😂.

    Nachdemmer i eusem mega gmüetliche Hostel achoo sind hemmer de Namitag nochli Dihei gnosse. Am Abig spat simmer denn ufs nöche Rugbyfeld, wills gheisse hett det gsehtmer no öppedie wildi Kiwis. Und tatsächlich hemmer denn zwei gseh. 🎉 de eint hett öppe 30cm vor eusne Füess aghalte und agfange esse😎.
    De einti Kiwi wo chli verschrocke isch vor anderne Lüt isch i paar Sekunde übers ganze Feld graast. Sind aso cheibe schnell die Vögeli.

    ____

    Because we got a discount we flew to Stewart island instead of taking the ferry on the rough sea!
    It was quite funny and bumpy... Do you know the feeling when falling down and feeling weightless? Kind of like a rollercoaster.
    We felt it almost every 5seconds 😅 what a funny flight! (especially for Jan, he lost his skin colour and turned white during the flight - but he was still smiling 😅)

    After surviving the 20min flight we went to our hostel to chill out 'till it gets dark to go kiwispotting.
    Indeed we saw two kiwis running around and feeding on the rugby field!! (it was to dark to take pictures...) one came straight towards us and was 30cm away in the end!! They look even funnier than we imagined 😊

    There's a friendly Robin and a Weka, wich cannot fly on the picture
