My last days I spent with going back to Christchurch. But straight was naturally not an option ๐Ÿ˜ instead I went for a quick look to Arthur’s Pass. One more time to see the New Zealand Alps ๐Ÿ˜ and I was again very lucky! It was raining when I arrived … but the next morning could not be more beautiful โ˜€๏ธ After my little detour I headed to Christchurch and my last… Read More

I spent two nights at Lake Tekapo since it is known for the best stargazing in New Zealand. Anyhow, during the day, it is hard to see any stars ๐Ÿ™‚ Therefore I did a short walk to Mt. John and treated myself with a Hot Pool in the Tekapo Springs afterwards. The two nights itself, I spent in the car, since all affordable accommodations were sold out in a distance of at… Read More

On my way up towards Lake Tekapo I made a little detour to Mt Cook. And I got not disappointed! I walked the Hooker Treck. An easy path right to the front of Mt Cook. A gorgeous walk – only a bit annoying is the amount of people … but anyway, according my opinion still worth it ๐Ÿ˜ While driving back (and actually also on the way to Mt Cook) I enjoyed… Read More

Today the weather forecast was rain! This was great for my trip to Milford Sound! ๐Ÿ˜ I saw the Sounds under good weather conditions two days ago with the scenic flight. Now I really wanted to see them in the mystic atmosphere! And here we go … in the morning I saw a lovely rainbow. A bit further it started to get cloudy, and at Milford Sound it was raining and all… Read More

… that’s how I feel myself ๐Ÿ˜ While driving up to Glenorchy yesterday, I had some gorgeous views! I just spend the afternoon at the lake and took up this beautiful landscape! Today I planned a horse ride … to Isengard – or also called the Paradise. And I got not disappointed… it was just breathtaking! And my little fury fella – Cooper – was the best ever ๐Ÿ˜ so patient with… Read More

I started the day quite easy… with a stroll through the town and my holy morning coffee โ˜•๏ธ Later in the morning I went off for a shorter hike called ‘Rocky Mountain/Lake Diamond Lake’ Loop. It was an amazing 2-3h hike. The climb up was quite exhausting in the full sun – but absolutely worth it ๐Ÿ˜ After being back in town I relaxed and refreshed myself at the lake with an… Read More

Again a day with a lot of driving – final destination will be Wanaka. But before heading down there, I went to the mirror lake – Lake Matheson. I was super lucky with the weather. It was sunny but also very cloudy. And exactly at the time I was there, the mountain tops got visible ๐Ÿ˜ Afterwards I headed to Wanaka. The drive is so beautiful and has many scenic stops …… Read More

I spent two days in the Abel Tasman National Park. Day 1: Enjoyed a Kayaking trip along the majestic shore of the Tonga Marine Reserve. While paddling along, we spotted a few seals. After having exercised my arms I walked a part of the costal track. The outlooks were just incredible! The colors were magic! Day 2: inspired by the day before I went for a second walk in the Abel Tasman… Read More

To get a bit time to relax, I stayed a couple of days in Wellington – Plimmerton to be exact. I spent most of my time with doing nothing ๐Ÿ˜ but still, I visited the Weta Caves, had a nice view from Mt. Victoria, chilled at the waterfront of Wellington and made a trip to Zealandia. I had wonderful sunny days and nearly got a sunburn ๐Ÿ˜ but it was so nice… Read More

Whanganui River (Pipiriki) was the destination for my next day trip. Headed there early in the morning from Turangi. Actually a very nice drive – winding small roads through middle earth ๐Ÿ˜ As I arrived in Pipiriki (kind of a little village in the middle of nowhere), we got ready for the trip. First part was taking the speed boat up the river, through the astonishing scenery…. i felt like driving through… Read More
