I started the day quite easy… with a stroll through the town and my holy morning coffee ☕️ 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 😁 After being back in town I relaxed and refreshed myself at the lake with an… 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
I started in the morning with the Hot Water Beach on the Coromandel Peninsula. The place is more than crowded – in fact interesting to see, how all the people dig their holes and create their own hot pools 🙂 After my morning coffee and a rest at the Beach, I headed down to the Hobbiton Movie Set. Well, also this place is very busy and touristy, but it is impressive, to… Read More
For getting adjusted and for doing some rough planning I spent one day in Auckland. It is not a must see. But nevertheless a nice city. Anyway, today I picked up my car and got on the road. My red little car and I drove straight to Hahei – 163 km // 2h 15‘. Ok in the beginning with a little detour 🙈 but this driving on the left … In Hahei… Read More
A great day with Sonja – and we named the day the 4 K’s … not real reason for it … just for fun 😁 St Kilda: we went on the tram at the CBD. 30′ later we were at Melbourne’s beach – St. Kilda. Well, it’s not the nicest beach in Australia, but still pretty and a fantastic location to be 😁 Kitty: Sonja found the little kitten… as a cat… Read More
Well, my room mates were/are a bit chaotic. I really had to figure out first, where I can put my bag pack … 😂 << yway, to wake up literally next to the ocean is just great! To get my body moving I attended a Yoga class – I thought just give it a try again … was actually quite good and I felt much more energized 😁 After a short breakfast… Read More
Hopp on the bus … stay in it for round 3h and you get off at Bonday Beach! Beach, Surfing, Party, Hippies… I would say this is the main groove here 😁
Once a time you just need a day off … this was the perfect day to do so. Just wandered around, enjoyed the beach (without a swim even though it had a shark net), took a drink at the marina and tried to catch up with some pending stuff … The area I stayed (Mindarie) was just perfect for this!
