Auckland to Wellington on a bus - why not?

Song of the day: Michael Buble – Home

I was required to go down to Wellington on short notice; thus, with even a Jetstar airfare surmounted to ~$100 one way, catching an Intercity bus seems like a much better deal, despite the challenge of sitting on a bus for 10 hours straight (?!?) It wasn’t the first time I took this bus, previously I took the night ride thinking that I could sleep through that 10 hours and wake up at 7am upon Wellington’s dawn. 254 more words

Tongariro Alpine Crossing

It’s a bit shameful that it took me until last summer to complete one of the best day hikes in NZ if not the world. But with its stunning landscapes and enough challenge to make me feel like I’d conquered something, the Tongariro Alpine Crossing was well worth the wait. 1,158 more words

Tongariro Alpine Crossing

english version

Wohl der Klassiker unter den Tagestrips auf der Nordinsel. Ein 19,4 km langer One Way Track, den man an einem Tag laufen kann. Der Touristen Highway schlechthin, selbst jetzt in der Nebensaison noch gut besucht, möchte ich mir gar nicht vorstellen was für Verhältnisse dort im Sommer herschen, wenn mehr als 700 Touris täglich das Crossing machen. 573 more words
