Back to Christchurch :)

After a really quiet time in Wellington it was time to head south one more time and go back to spend some more time with Charlotte :) Me being me, of course I didn’t take the easy option of just flying there – instead I used all other means of transport! 880 more words

A lot of fun - and long bus rides

Leaving Mt Cook, I got on the bus with Lantern, my fave driver so far! Back in the Loveshack we went to Lake Tekapo for the famous church and then on to Geraldine and Rangitata for the Peel Forest Horsetrekking and the rafting. 898 more words

Queenstown if you're not a party person ;)

Queenstown – party and adventure capital of New Zealand, or so they say. So why on earth did I want to stay here for 4 nights? 878 more words

The Deep South part 2

From Gunns Camp, we set off towards Te Anau again and then towards Invercargill. There was a walk to a waterfall not far from the camp, so we stopped there, but the motivation wasn’t really high… It did work as a warm-up though ;) 244 more words

The Deep South part 1

We started very early in Queenstown, with a new driver, Lantern, to explore the Deep South. Heading towards Te Anau, we drove again through some pretty amazing scenery, stopping at the Mirror Lakes (not the same one as before!) for some pictures. 257 more words

Wanaka to Queenstown

We had a late start in Wanaka and then the first stop just outside at Puzzling World. I don’t really do well with illusions and such, so I decided to skip this one and stay in the cafe instead :) 300 more words


Mount Cook

What can I say? Mount Cook or Aoraki as the Maori call it is the highest peak in New Zealand and right now I am sitting in a hostel lounge looking at it and its surroundings in the sunshine :) 354 more words
